**8. Resonant Frequency**

A series LCR circuit is said to be in the resonance condition when the current through it has its maximum value.

The current amplitude I_{0} for a series LCR circuit is given by

Clearly I_{0} becomes zero both for Ï‰ â†’ 0 and Ï‰ â†’ âˆž. The value of I_{0} is maximum when

or

â‡’

Then impedance will be minimum

Z_{min} = R

The circuit is purely resistive. The current and voltage are in the same phase and the current in the circuit is maximum. This condition of the LCR circuit is called resonance condition.

The variance of I_{0} v/s Ï‰ shown in following figure

So cos = = = 1

V = V_{0} sin (Ï‰t)

Impedance phase of resonance circuit

Impedance of the circuit is minimum and heat generated in the circuit is maximum.

*Ex.15 In following LCR circuit find Z, i(t), V _{OC}, V_{OL} at resonace frequency*

**Sol. **Z = Z_{min} = R = 2?

V_{O L} = i_{0}X_{C }= 100 volt

V_{O L} = i_{0} X_{L} = 100 volt

** : **Above circuit is used as voltage amplifier (magnification) as peak value of voltage by source is only 10 while we can have maximum voltage up to 100 (V_{O C}& V_{O L})

*Ex.16 A series LCR with R = 20 ?, L = 1.5 H and C = 35 Î¼F is connected to a variable frequency 200 V a.c. supply. When the frequency of the supply equals the natural frequency of the circuit. What is the average power transferred to the circuit in one complete cycle?*

**Sol. **When the frequency of the supply equals the natural frequency of the circuit, resonance occurs.

Therefore, Z = R = 20 ohm

*i*_{rms} =

Average power transferred/cycle

P = E_{rms}i_{rms} cos0Â° = 200 Ã— 10 Ã— 1 = **2000 watt**

**8.1 Sharpness of Resonance (Q - factor) :**

The Q- factor of a series resonant circuit is defined as the ratio of the resonant frequency to the difference in two frequencies taken on the both sides of the resonant frequency such that at each frequency, the current amplitude becomes times the value of resonant frequency.

Mathematically Q-factor.

**9. Choke Coil :**

A choke coil is simply an inductor with large inductance which is used to reduce current in a.c. circuit without much loss of energy.

**Principle.** A choke coil is based upon the principle that when a.c. flows through an inductor, the current lags behind the e.m.f. by a phase angle Ï€/2.

**Construction.** A choke coil is basically an inductance. It consists of a large number of turns of insulated copper wire wound over a soft iron core. In order to minimize loss of electrical energy due to production of eddy currents, a laminated iron core is used.

In practice, a low frequency choke coil is made of insulated copper wire wound on a soft iron core, while a high frequency choke coil has air as core materials

** Working : **As shown in fig a choke is put in series across an electrical appliances of resistance R and is connected to an a.c. source.

Average power dissipiated per cycle in the circuit is

P_{av} = V_{eff} I_{eff} cosf = V_{eff} I_{eff} .

Inductance L of the choke coil is very large so that R << wL. Then

Power factor cos Ï† â‰Œ 0

tan Ï† =

**Uses.** In a.c. circuit, a choke coil is used to control the current in place of a resistance. If a resistance is used to control the current, the electrical energy will be wasted in the form of heat. A choke coil decreases the current without wasting electrical energy in the form of heat.

**10. OSCILLATIONS IN L-C CIRCUIT**

If a charged capacitor C is short-circuited through an inductor L, the charge and current in the circuit start oscillating simple harmonically. If the resistance of the circuit is zero, no energy is dissipated as heat. Assume an ideal situation in which energy is not radiated away from the circuit. With these idealizations-zero resistance and no radiation, the oscillations in the circuit persist indefinitely and the energy is transferred from capacitor's electric field to the inductor's magnetic field back and forth. The total energy associated with the circuit is constant. This is analogous to the transfer of energy in an oscillating mechanical system from potential energy to kinetic energy and back, with constant total energy. Such an analogous mechanical system is an example of spring mass system.

Let us now derive an equation for the oscillations of charge and current in an L-C circuit. Refer figure (a) : The capacitor is charged to a potential difference V such that charge on capacitor q_{0} = CV

Here q_{0} is the maximum charge on the capacitor. At time t = 0, it is connected to an inductor through a switch S. At time t = 0, the switch S is closed.

Refer figure (b) : When the switch is closed, the capacitor starts discharging. Let at time t charge on the capacitor is q (<q_{0}) and since, it is further decreasing, there is a current *i* in the circuit in the direction shown in figure.

The potential difference across capacitor = potential difference across inductor, or

V_{b} - V_{a} = V_{c} - V_{d}

Therefore, ...(1)

Now, as the charge is decreasing, *i* =

or = -

Substituting in equation (1), we get

or = - ...(2)

This is the standard equation of simple harmonic motion

Here w = ...(3)

The general solution of equation (2), is

q = q_{0} cos (Ï‰t Â± Ï†) ...(4)

In our case Ï† = 0 as q = q_{0} at t = 0.

Thus, we can say that the charge in the circuit oscillates with angular frequency Ï‰ given by equation (3). Thus,

ln L - C oscillations, q, i and all oscillate simple harmonically with same angular frequency Ï‰, but the phase difference between q and *i* or between *i* and is . Their amplitudes are q_{0} q_{0}Ï‰ are Ï‰^{2} q_{0} respectively. So

q = q_{0} cosÏ‰t, then ...(5)

i = - = q_{0}Ï‰ sin Ï‰t ...(6)

and cosÏ‰t ...(7)

Potential energy in the capacitor

U_{C} = = ...(8)

Potential energy in the inductor

U_{L} = = ...(9)

Thus potential energy stored in the capacitor and that in the inductor also oscillates between maximum value and zero with double the frequency. All these quantities are shown in the figures that follows

*Ex.17 A capacitor of capacitance 25 Î¼F is charged to 300 v. It is then connected across a 10 Î¼H inductor. The resistance of the circuit is negligible.*

*(a) Find the frequency of oscillation of the circuit.*

*(b) Find the potential difference across capacitor and magnitude of circuit current 1.2 ms after the inductor and capacitor are connected.*

*(c) Find the magnetic energy and electric energy at t = 0 and t = 1.2 ms.*

**Sol. **(a) The frequency of oscillation of the circuit is ,

f =

Substituting the given values we have, =

(b) Charge across the capacitor at time t will be ,

q = q_{0} cos *Ï‰*t

and *i* = - q_{0} *Ï‰*sin *Ï‰*t

Here q_{0} = CV_{0} = (25 Ã— 10^{-6}) (300) = 7.5 Ã— 10^{-3} C

Now, charge is the capacitor after t = 1.2 Ã— 10^{-3} s is,

q = (7.5 Ã— 10^{-3}) cos (2p Ã— 318.3) (1.2 Ã— 10^{-3})C

= 5.53 Ã— 10^{-3}C

Therefore, P.D. across capacitor,

V = = 221.2 volt

The magnitude of current in the circuit at

t = 1.2 Ã— 10^{-3} s is,

|*i*| = q_{0} *Ï‰* sin*Ï‰*t

= (7.5 Ã— 10^{-3}) (2p) (318.3) sin(2p Ã— 318.3) (1.2 Ã— 10^{-3}) A = 10.13 A

(c) At t = 0 : Current in the circuit is zero. Hence,U_{L} = 0

Charge on the capacitor is maximum

Hence, U_{c} =

or U_{c} = = 1.125 J

Therefore, Total energy E = U_{L} + U_{C }= 1.125 J

At t = 1.2 ms

U_{L} = = (10.13)^{2} = 0.513 J

U_{C} = E - U_{L} = 1.125 - 0.513 = 0.612 J

Otherwise U_{C} can be calculated as,

U_{C} = = = 0.612 J
