Lab2: Analysis of Series RLC Circuit in Terms of Amplitude and Phase Angle
Equipment: Digital Oscilloscope, Function Generator, Multi-meter, Resistor, Inductor, Capacitor, Connection Cables Patch Box, Computer with Workbench software (for Part II only)

Outline: We shall analyze a series RLC circuit in terms of amplitude and phase angle of current and component voltages. We shall first calculate theoretical values and then make practical measurements. At the end we shall use computer software for simulating the circuit and finally compare our results.

Select a sinusoidal voltage source and drag it onto the workspace below. Double click the icon to display properties of the source. Select 0.707V and 30 kHz (The voltage amplitude is 1V = 0.707 Vrms). Connect the Now select the basic components button and bring on to the workspace, one by one, a resistor, an inductor and a capacitor. Modify their properties as per the lab experiment. Connect the components by drawing wires between them. Select the multi-meter from the devices panel and connect at appropriate places. Connect an Oscilloscope at appropriate points with a common ground. Start the simulation by switching on the toggle switch on the right top corner. Stop it after 10 seconds. Record measurements of VR, VL and VC for 30 kHz, 40 kHz, 50 kHz and 60 kHz. Use the T1 and T2 markers of the oscilloscope to assist in calculating phase angle. Calculate IS = VR/ZR = VR/R ( This is the only way to calculate phase of current)
Caution! All Measured values are rms values. They must be converted to peak values to make a comparison with the theoretical values

Using the patch box, connect the circuit elements ensuring that no connection is loose. Connect Ch A of the oscilloscope across the circuit input (ie function generator) Using the oscilloscope, ensure that the source output is 1V amplitude (2VP-P) at 30 Khz. Using multimeter, measure the source voltage. Note that the multimeter reads rms voltage = 1/1.414 = 0.707 volts. Connect Ch B of the oscilloscope across the resistor and use the auto function to achieve a reasonable waveform. Measure the amplitude of VR Now measure the horizontal distance between the two waveforms. Is best to observe the difference at the zero crossing of both signals. You need to ensure that the x-axis of both signals accurately overlap. Calculate the phase difference between the two signals. Phase angle = (measured distance / Time period) x 360o Calculate circuit current I = VR / ZR Similarly measure VL and VC and record in the table below. Repeat Steps 2 8 for 40 kHz, 50 kHz and 60 kHz.
