An AC circuit is characterized by an alternating current, which is created

from an alternating voltage source. Thus, one can formulate the basic equations

of AC circuits via using either current or voltage. Here, an alternating current

(i.e., oscillating in time) will be used,

I(t) = I0 sin(ωt)

**where I0 refers to the peak current or the amplitude
**

of the current sinusoid.

R Only

**Plug in (1) into Ohm’s Law and you get V = IR = I0 R sin(ωt) = V0 sin(ωt).
**

Thus, for a resistor, the current and voltage are proportional to each other; in

other words, the current and voltage are in phase.

V (t) = V0 sin(ωt) and I(t) = I0 sin(ωt)

Energy flows from the source to be dissipated by the resistor. The average

power (energy dissipated) is hP i = hI(t)V (t)i = I0 V0 hsin2 (ωt)i = I02V0 = 02 =

**˙ one gets V (t) = LωI0 cos(ωt) =

Plugging in the time derivative of (1) into V = LI,

V0 sin(ωt + π2 ). One sees that the current lags behind the voltage by π/2.

V (t) = V0 cos(ωt) and I(t) = I0 sin(ωt)

In the above, the following relation was used: V0 = I0 ωL. In the spirit of the

familiar Ohm’s Law, let’s define a quantity with the same units of resistance.

But, let’s call it the inductive reactance or impedance.

0 dt ω Q(t) −I0 cos(ωt) π V (t) = C = = −V0 sin(ωt − 2 ).V0 = IXL0 ⇒ XL0 = ωL The average power is 0 because the integral of the product of I(t) and V (t) averages to 0. the relation V0 = I0 ωC is used. Thus. This means that energy is sent from the voltage source to the magnetic field of the inductor and back to the voltage source–with no net dissipation. as used here. I = R dQ I0 ⇒ Q = I sin(ωt)dt = − cos(ωt). This means that energy is sent from the voltage source to the electric field between the plates of the capacitor and back to the voltage source– with no net dissipation. involves rotating vectors that are either (anti)parallel or at right angles to each other. 3 C Only The voltage across a capacitor is defined as Q = CV ⇒ V = Q C . where (1) is used for current. 4 LRC Circuit Analysis via Phasors If you get vectors. This suggests that a capacita1 tive reactance be defined as XC = ωC . 2 . V (t) = −V0 cos(ωt) and I(t) = I0 sin(ωt) 1 In the above. you get phasors. The only difference is that phasors. V0 = IXC0 ⇒ XC0 = 1 ωC The average power is 0 because the integral of the product of I(t) and V (t) averages to 0. But. It turns out that only resistors dissipate energy in AC circuits. The current leads the voltage by ωC π/2.
