An example of resonance in the form of
mechanical : oscillation
Potential energy change to kinetic energy than
kinetic energy will change back to potential
energy.
If there is no lost of energy cause by friction
potential energy is equal to kinetic energy.

It will oscillate for a long time.

Potential energy stored in capacitor change to
magnetic energy that stored in inductor. Then
magnetic energy change back to potential energy
stored in capacitor.
If there is no lost of energy by resistor potential
energy equal to magnetic energy
CV = LI
It will oscillate for a long time.

b) Half power frequency, 1 and 2
Frequency where current (or voltage) equal Imax/2 (or Vmax/2 ).
c) Quality factor, Q
Ratio of its resonant frequency to its bandwidth
d) Bandwidth, BW

Resonance parameter for
series circuit
a) Resonant frequency,o
The resonance condition is
oL = 1 / oC or o = 1 / LC rad/s
since o = 2fo
fo = 1/ 2LC Hz

b) Half power frequencies
At certain frequencies = 1, 2, the half power frequencies are obtain by setting Z = 2R

R + (L 1/ C) = 2R


Solving for , we obtain
1 = - R/2L + (R/2L) + 1/LC rad/s
2 = R/2L + (R/2L) + 1/LC rad/s
Or in term of resonant parameter,
1 = o [ - 1/ 2Q + (1/ 2Q) + 1 ] rad/s
2 = o [ 1/ 2Q + (1/ 2Q) + 1 ] rad/s
c) Quality factor, Q
Ratio of its resonant frequency to its bandwidth.

d) Bandwidth, BW
BW = 2 1
= o [ 1+ (1/ 2Q) + 1/ 2Q ] - o [ 1+ (1/ 2Q) - 1/ 2Q ]
= o [ 1/ 2Q + 1/2Q ]
= o [2/ 2Q]
= o / Q
Q = oL /R = 1/ oCR
thus,
BW = R / L = o / Q
or, BW = oCR

3.4 Parallel Resonance
Circuits

Resonance can be divided into 2:


a) Ideal parallel circuit
b) Practical parallel circuit
At least 3 important information that is needed to analyze to get the resonances
parameter:
In resonance frequency,
o
the imaginary parts of admittance,Y must be equal
to zero.
When in lower cut-off frequency,
1
and in higher cut-off frequency,
2
the
magnitude of admittance,Y must be equal to 2/R.

Second approach to analyze this circuit is by changing the series
RL to parallel RL circuit.
The purpose of this transformation is to make it much more easier
to get the resonance parameter.
