System of units

CIRCUIT ELEMENTS

Circuit analysis the process of determining the voltage across or current through the element. There

are two types of element in circuit, passive element and another is active element. Active element is

capable of producing energy and passive element is not.

Resistor, inductor, capacitor are passive elements. Generator, batteries and Operational amplifier

are typical active elements

An ideal independent source is an active element which deliver the specified current or voltage

that is completely independent of other circuit elements

An ideal dependent source (or controlled source) is an active element in which the source quantity is

controlled by another element’s voltage or current. These controlled sources are indicates as

diamond symbols

OHM’S LAW:

The current through the a conductor between two points is directly proportional to the potential

difference across the two points( i v / r ).here r is proportional constant and also called as

resistance

All resistances are not obey the ohms law. The resistance which will obey the ohms law known as

linear resistance. A non linear resistance doesn’t obey the ohms law

Kirchhoff reformulate the ohm law as follows the current density (J) is directly proportional to

applied electric field (E). here conductivity( ) is the proportional constant ( J E )

Ohms law only valid up to temperature is kept at constant and it is dependent of nature of the

elements

Ohms law is not applicable for active sources (generator.etc) because the voltage and current

relation of the source is non linear

Conductivity is differ from conductance. The reciprocal of resistivity (or specific resistance) is

conductivity and the reciprocal of resistance is conductance. It can also stated as follows,

conductance is the ability of an element to conduct the electric current

Specific resistance of the material increase with increasing in temperature. Increase in pressure also

increase the resistivity (but except lithium and calcium). Resistivity also increase due to increase in

tension

At any node or junction, the sum of currents flowing into that node is equal to the sum of currents

flowing out of that node. Kirchhoff current law based on the conservation of charges.

Kirchhoff laws are applicable to any lumped electric circuit whether it linear, Non linear, variant ,

invariant, active or passive

The directed sum of the electrical potential differences around any closed network is zero. This law

is based on the conservation of energy

In KVL there is an assumption for no fluctuating magnetic field doesn’t involved in loop

CIRCUIT REDUCTIONS

NODAL ANALYSIS

Nodal analysis based on the KCL. The reference node is known as datum node

MESH ANALYSIS

Mesh analysis based on the KVL. This method is only applicable for the planar circuits only. Planar

circuit means the circuit contains no elements which are cross the other elements

Mesh is the loop which doesn’t contain any other loops with in it

LINEARITY PROPERTY

Linear property of element describing a linear relationship between cause and effect or input and

output. The property is the combination of both homogeneity (scaling) property and addictive

property

The homogeneity property states that if the input is multiplied by constant K, then output also

multiple of constant K

The addictive property states that the response to a sum of inputs is the sum of the responses to

each input added separately

THEVENINS THEOREM

It states that a linear two terminal circuit can be replaced by an equivalent circuit consisting of a

voltage source VTH in series with a resistor RTH where VTH is the open circuit voltage at the terminals

and RTH is the input or equivalent resistance at the terminals when the independent sources are

turned off

Adding resistor or load in parallel system causes the increase in current flow as well as power flow,

but we have to understand the following things

The equivalent resistor of the network will be reduced after adding the new resistor or load. If the

new resistor value is lower than equivalent resistor(as before) then maximum current will flow

through the new resistor (due to very low resistance) and it takes the maximum power from source

Short circuit across R3 causes the the least path for current flow, so obviously R1 and R2 resistances

also negligible due to the short circuit. Even if the short circuit occurs at across the R2 then it also

make the short circuit for all parallel branches. Series resistance only taken in account if the short

circuit occurred at parallel branch (ex a diagram)

We take B diagram, here the short circuit occurred at across R3 resistance, so the current will doesn’t

flow through R3 and R2 due to the negligible resistance, but the current will also flow through the R1

because it was protected by R4 resistance

Hopkinson law is also known as ohms law for magnetic circuit. It states that the magneto motive

force( is equal to the product of flux and the reluctance

F m

INDUCTANCE:

The total flux produced by element is directly proportional to the flow of current ( Li ), here L is

the proportional constant

di

Voltage across the inductor is v L

dt

L

Current flow through the inductor i vdt

di

Instantaneous power of the inductor is p Li and the average power of the inductor is zero

dt

1 2

Energy stored in inductor is Li

2

CAPACITANCE:

The value of charge is directly proportional to applied voltage ( q Cv ) and the C is proportional

constant

Capacitance doesn’t depend on voltage or charge (from above equation). It only depends on the

physical dimensions

It act as a open circuit for the DC (but in dc supply it can charging. It could not discharge)

The leakage resistance is very high for the capacitor(around 100M ohm). It is due to the property of

dielectric medium. So in equivalent circuit the leakage resistance is placed parallel to capacitance

The voltage division rule only applicable for pure series circuits only(single loop). The current must

be same for validity of voltage division. Try avoid the this rule for kvl circuits which had a more loops

R1

v1 v

R1 R2

The current division rule is only applicable if there is only parallel elements(pure parallel ckt). In

simply words the current must be split in each branch. If any series element is found then avoid this

rule

R2

R1 R2

TIME CONSTANT:

Time constant of the circuit is time required for the response to decay (while discharging)to a factor

of 1/e or 36.8% of its initial value or time required to reach the 63.2% of its original value(while

charging)

STAR TO DELTA (VICEVERSA) CONVERSION

The two wattmeter method is used for measure the 3phase power whether load is balanced or

unbalanced. the idea of two wattmeter method is derived from measure the 3 phase power(4 wire

system) by using 3 wattmeter method. While connecting three wattmeter on each phase the voltage

must be connected in between of any two phase or with neutral. So any one of the wattmeter will

indicate the zero value(if the pressure coil is connected in the line voltage). So it is not necessary to

place it. We can remove the one wattmeter and 2 wattmeter is enough for measure the 3 phase

power

By blondal theorem to measure the power in N conductors there is N wattmeters required (each

current coil is connected in N lines and the one end of all pressure coil is connected to the common

point. This common point is not part of N conductor)if the common point is to be any one from N

conductors then N-1 wattmeter sufficiently. So two wattmeter method applicable for 3 ph 3 wire

system (if the common point is any one of the line) and 3ph 4wire system (we neglect the neutral

wire and common point should be placed in any one of the line)

3 phase power measurement by 3 wattmeter method

terminal may connected to the neutral where the load is star connection or any one of the terminal

if the load is delta connection. And that corresponding meter will indicate the zero power so it is not

necessary

The total reactive power can be calculated by QT 3(P2 P1 ) , from above formula we can also

calculate the power factor by using following relation

3(P2 P1 ) Q

tan 1 because tan 1 T

(P2 P1 ) PT

From the result of two wattmeter we can conclude the following things

TWO PORT NETWORK

Port is the part of the device or element where the current may enter or leave from the

circuit. Two terminal devices (resistor, capacitor, inductor) are also known as one port

networks

Opamp, transistor, transformers are two port networks. Because it has a two separate port

for input and output. We will assume that two port networks doesn’t has any active source

while solving the problem

The z parameters of two port networks can be calculated by current and voltage (one port

must be open circuited) at one port and voltage and current of the another port. In simply

the process like a superposition theorem

Z11 is the open circuit input impedance Z12 is the open circuit transfer impedance from port

1 to port 2

Z11 and Z22 are called as driving point impedance. Z12 and Z21 are called transfer impedance

If Z11 = Z22 then two port network is said to be symmetrical network

When two port network is linear and doesn’t have any dependent source then transfer

impedance are equal (Z12 = Z21) and it said to be a reciprocal network

Generally Z parameters can findout easily if the network is T and findingout the Y

parameters easily if the network is PI

RULE FOR NETWORK TOPOLOGY:

(don’t memorize this formula, try to develop from any of the circuit model)

b l n 1

Here b is the no of branch, l is the no of independent loop and n is the no of nodes

BRIDGE CIRCUIT BASICS;

Bridge circuit is used to find out the unknown resistance or inductance or capacitance with

the help of known parameters. It contains galvanometer (for DC bridge, voltmeter or

ammeter for AC), resistance bridge, supply source

If V1= V2 then no current flow through meter and we may conclude the following derivation

Z2

V1 Vs (as per voltage division rule)

Z1 Z 2

Zx

V2 Vs

Z3 Z x

Z2 Zx

Z1 Z 2 Z 3 Z x

While solving above equation we may get

Z 2 Z 3 Z1Z x (multiplication of diagonal element is easy trick for remember this formula)

RMS is the value of ac parameters which gives the same power as much as dc for the same

load

RMS can be obtained by following

T

1 2

T 0

X rms x dt (here 1/T denotes the finding average)

POWER TRIANGLE

This triangle denotes the relation between apparent power, real power and reactive power.

This triangle can be drawn in two shapes which are based on the reactive power

power ( this diagram denotes the +ve reactive power. The reactive power is absorbed.)

from this diagram(merging of

possible shapes of power triangle) we may conclude the following things if Q = +ve means

load absorbs the reactive power from the source. If Q= -ve means load delivers the reactive

power to the source. If Q= 0 no reactive power is neither absorbed nor delivered

Complex power or apparent power is the sum of reactive power and real power.

CALCULATION FOR CAPACITANCE VALUE TO IMPROVE THE LOAD POWER FACTOR

Capacitors are installed parallel with load to improve the power factor. We need to calculate

the capacitance value to improve the desired power factor. Here the important thing is the

real power of the load is doesn’t altered. We concentrate on reduce the reactive supply

form the source. (Some persons may asks if the power factor is improved on load, then the

source may delivered the additional real power to that load. But it is not happened, because

the true power only depends on the level of load. If power factor improves, then the burden

of the source will be reduced that means the reduction in reactive power requirement

happened. But the required real power doesn’t change even if the power factor is improved

or not)

The formula for finding the capacitance value

C = change in reactive power/ angular frequency * square of the voltage

(To understand the above formula, following things will be helpful

Change in reactive power denotes the amount of reactive power to be added to the load

circuit

V2

We all know the power formula for capacitor Pc . If we further simplify this equation

Xc

we get the following equation Pc CV 2

If we divide the required reactive power by capacitor power we get the dimensionless

numerical value. But we need the capacitance value so transferred C to the other side of the

equation)

While choosing the capacitor value it purely depends on the peak voltage. Always chosen

the capacitor voltage greater than circuit operating peak voltage

Example:

Find the value of capacitor to improve the load power factor to 0.95 from 0.8 while

connected in 120(rms) volt 60Hz power line and the load absorbs 4Kw real power?

Solution:

First the real power is the intermediate term for both reactive power calculation(don’t

forget this)

First find out the reactive power absorbed by the load at 0.8pf

4000/0.8 = 5KVA

(Most of us made a mistake by subtracting the real power form apparent power for find out

the reactive power. But it is wrong because these are vector quantity. So arithmetic

subtraction is invalid here)

40002+x2=50002

X= 3KVAR (this is the reactive power absorbed by the load at 0.8pf)

Now we have find out the new reactive power absorbed by the load at 0.95pf. be aware

here we only take a real power for the operation. Because it only constant in power factor

improvement. If we take apparent power for calculation we get the wrong result

4000/0.95= 4210.5KVA

The new reactive power is √4210.52 – 40002= 1314.6KVAR

Now find the difference of reactive power is 3000 – 1314.6 = 1685.6KVAR

Now apply the formula

1685.6/2*pi*1202 =310.5microF

Calculations are based on RMS values only. But chosen of capacitance depends the peak

voltage

SERIES RESONANCE

Resonance is the one of the frequency response of the RLC circuit. It may series or parallel

circuit. When XL=Xc the net reactance will be zero( be aware not L=R). the total current flow

only depends on the resistance only in series resonance. Because Z = R in resonance.so the

power factor is unity. Impedance and voltage is minimum at series resonance

At resonance condition XL=XC, solving this equation we may get the resonance frequency

1

formula f 0

2 LC

At resonance condition the current in series RLC circuit will be maximum. So maximum

power delivered at resonant frequency.

Two frequencies which are near to the resonant frequency is known as cut off frequencies

or half power frequencies or 3dB points. Upper cut off frequency is slightly higher than

resonant frequency. Lower cut off frequency is the slightly lesser than resonant frequency.

The cut off frequencies are marked at where the current is 1/√2 times of peak value.(that’s

why it is called half power frequency. Because i/√2*v/√2 = p/2)

Q factor defined in many ways for the resonance circuit. It is defined as the ratio of the

voltage across the inductor or capacitor to the applied voltage

Solving by above definition we may get the following Q = V C/V

Q = iXc/iR = ωL/R (incase of inductor)

Q = 1/ωCR (incase of capacitor)

Q = (1/R)√LC (common formula)

max .energy stored

Q factor also defined as Q 2 this also gives same formula

energy, dissipated / cycle

Bandwidth defined as the area where the current limit is in between 1/√2 to maximum. In

simple way it is the area where the power is greater than or equal to half power of the

circuit. Mathematically band width is calculated as the difference of half power frequencies

f0

Q or selectivity = here f 2 f1 is band width

f 2 f1

Q factor also defined in the term of band width (Q = resonant frequency/ band width). This

is also known as selectivity. Selectivity is the ability of the circuit for respond to a certain

frequency

From above we may also get the voltage across the inductor or capacitor. It should be Q

times of supply voltage.(Vc or VL greater than supply voltage)

Resonant frequency can be also denoted in terms of cut off frequencies ( 0 12 )

We can derive the various formulas by comparing all Q factor formula. Try to find the band

width formula interms of R,L,C

PARALLEL RESONANCE

In parallel resonance circuit(also known as tuned circuit or rejector circuit or anti resonant

circuit) XL=XC but here current is minimum and the voltage is maximum or impedance is

maximum or current is minimum(because capacitor and inductor are connected in parallel).

The power factor is unity

The resonant frequency is calculated by the following formula which is also same for series

1

resonance f 0

2 LC

Here Q factor is defined as the ratio of capacitor current or inductor current to the resonant

circuit current. But the deriving formula for parallel resonance is also same as Q factor

formula is series resonance( it is due to the effect of impedance formula in parallel

resonance)

Q = (V/Xc)/(V/Z) = ωL/R (incase of inductor)

Q = 1/ωCR (incase of capacitor)

Q = (1/R)√LC (common formula)

The bandwidth formula is same as series resonance
