QUESTION: 6

In the figure shown below,

As the switch (shown in the green) is pressed, the voltage across the diode(ideally)

Solution:

As the switch is pressed, current starts to flow & the whole supply voltage (ideally) appears across the load R & voltage across the diode is zero.

QUESTION: 13

For the initially relaxed circuit shown below, if Ω=1/√LC. Then the current is a function of ___​

Solution:

When switch is closed,
Ldi/dt + 1/C ∫ idt = Vs
Laplace of the above gives,
L[sI(s)] + 1/C [I(s)/s] = Vs/s
I(s) = Vs/(LΩ) * (Ω/Ω2 + s2)
Taking the inverse lapace gives,
I(t) = Vs * √ (L/C) * sin Ωt.

QUESTION: 14

For the circuit shown below, the capacitor is initially charged to a voltage of Vo with the upper plate positive. After the switch (shown in green) is closed, the current through the load

QUESTION: 27

Consider the diode to be an ideal one and Vo = Vr + Vdc during positive half cycle. Thus, during the negative half cycle​

Solution:

During the negative half diode is not conducting hence Vr (voltage across the resistor) = 0. Vo = Vdc.

QUESTION: 28

When a diode is connected in series with an AC source & R load, the conduction time per cycle is

Solution:

The diode is forward biased for half cycle (180 degrees) and reversed biased in the another 180 degrees. Hence, per cycle it only conducts for 180 degrees or π radians.

QUESTION: 29

Solution:

For an R – L load, the inductively load can make the diode to force conducted hence, the conduction time can be greater than 180 degrees.
