ALTERNATING CURRENT

A current that is constantly changing in amplitude and

direction.

Advantages of AC:

Magnitude can easily be changed (stepped-up or stepped down) with the use of a

transformer

Can be produced either single phase for light loads, two phase for control motors,

three phase for power distribution and large motor loads or six phase for large

scale AC to DC conversion.

It is the height of an AC waveform as depicted on a graph over time

(peak, peak-to-peak, average, or RMS quantity)

PEAK AMPLITUDE the height of an AC waveform as measured from the

zero mark to the highest positive or lowest negative point on a graph. Also

known as the crest amplitude of a wave.

AVERAGE AMPLITUDE the mathematical mean of all a waveforms points

over the period of one cycle. Technically, the average amplitude of any

waveform with equal-area portions above and below the zero line on a

graph is zero.

RMS AMPLITUDE - RMS stands for Root Mean Square, and is a way of

expressing an AC quantity of voltage or current in terms functionally

equivalent to DC. Also known as the equivalent or DC equivalent

value of an AC voltage or current.

For a sine wave, the RMS value is approximately 0.707 of its peak value.

BASIC AC THEORY

AC RESISTOR CIRCUIT

Impedance (Z) = R

With an AC circuit like this which is purely resistive, the relationship of the voltage

and current is as shown:

Power is never a negative value. When the current is positive (above the line),

the voltage is also positive, resulting in a power (p=ie) of a positve value

This consistent polarity of a power tell us that the resistor is always

dissipating power, taking it from the source and releasing it in the form of heat

energy. Whether the current is negative or positive, a resistor still dissipated

energy.

AC CIRCUITS

AC INDUCTOR CIRCUIT

Impedance (Z) = jXL

voltage by 90 electrical degrees

Because the current and voltage waves arae 90o out of phase, there sre times when one

is positive while the other is negative, resulting in equally frequent occurences of

negative instantaneous power.

Negative power means that the inductor is releasing power back to the circuit, while a

positive power means that it is absorbing power from the circuit.

The inductor releases just as much power back to the circuit as it absorbs over the span

of a complete cycle.

AC CIRCUITS

AC INDUCTOR CIRCUIT

o Inductive reactance is the opposition that an inductor offers to alternating

current due to its phase-shifted storage and release of energy in its

magnetic field. Reactance is symbolized by the capital letter X and is

measured in ohms just like resistance (R).

o Inductive reactance can be calculated using this formula: XL = 2fL

o The angular velocity of an AC circuit is another way of expressing its

frequency, in units of electrical radians per second instead of cycles per

second. It is symbolized by the lowercase Greek letter omega, or .

o Inductive reactance increases with increasing frequency. In other words,

the higher the frequency, the more it opposes the AC flow of electrons.

AC CIRCUITS

AC CAPACITOR CIRCUIT

Impedance (Z) = -jXC

The most distinguishing electrical characteristics of an C circuit is that leads the voltage

by 90 electrical degrees

The current through a capacitor is a reaction against the change in voltage across it

A capacitors opposition to change in voltage translates to an opposition to alternating

voltage in general, which is by definition always changing in instantaneous magnitude

and direction. For any given magnitude of AC voltage at a given frequency, a capacitor

of given size will conduct a certain magnitude of AC current.

The phase angle of a capacitors opposition to current is -90o,meaning that a capacitors

opposition to current is a negative imaginary quantity

AC CIRCUITS

AC CAPACITOR CIRCUIT

o Capacitive reactance is the opposition that a capacitor offers to alternating

current due to its phase-shifted storage and release of energy in its electric

field. Reactance is symbolized by the capital letter X and is measured in

ohms just like resistance (R).

o Capacitive reactance decreases with increasing frequency. In other words,

the higher the frequency, the less it opposes (the more it conducts) the

AC flow of electrons.

AC CIRCUITS

For a series resistor-inductor circuit, the voltage and current relation is

determined in its phase shift. Thus, current lags voltage by a phase shift

o When resistors and inductors are mixed together in circuits, the total

impedance will have a phase angle somewhere between 0o and +90o. The

circuit current will have a phase angle somewhere between 0o and -90o.

Series AC circuits exhibit the same fundamental properties as series DC

circuits: current is uniform throughout.

AC CIRCUITS

For a series resistor capacitor circuit, the voltage and current relation is

determined by the phase shift. Thus the current leads the voltage by an

angle less than 90 degrees but greater than 0 degrees.

angle somewhere between 0o and -90o.

o Parallel AC circuits exhibit the same fundamental properties as parallel DC

circuits: voltage is uniform throughour the circuit, brach currents add to

form the total current, and impedances diminish (through the reciprocal

formula) to form the total impedance.
