Introducing the resistor increases the decay of these oscillations, which is also known as damping. The reason for this terminology is that the driven resonance frequency in a series or parallel resonant circuit has the value [1].

A series resistor with the inductor in a parallel LC circuit as shown in Figure 4 is a topology commonly encountered where there is a need to take into account the resistance of the coil winding. Parallel LC circuits are frequently used for bandpass filtering and the Q is largely governed by this resistance. For a wider bandwidth, a larger value of the damping factor is required and vice versa.

Figure 11 is a band-stop filter formed by a parallel LC circuit in series with the load.

If R is small, consisting only of the inductor winding resistance say, then this current will be large. The driven frequency may be called the undamped resonance frequency or undamped natural frequency and the peak frequency may be called the damped resonance frequency or the damped natural frequency. The resonant frequency for an RLC circuit is the same as a circuit in which there is no damping, hence undamped resonance frequency.

Alternatively, R may be predetermined by the external circuitry which will use the last degree of freedom. For an arbitrary V tthe solution obtained by inverse transform of I s is:. They are related to each other by a simple proportion. Furthermore, the exact maximum impedance magnitude is given by [21]. In a series RLC circuit at resonance, the current is limited only by the resistance of the circuit.


A key parameter in filter design is bandwidth. Neper occurs in the name because the units can also be considered to be nepers per second, neper being a unit of attenuation. The value of the damping factor is chosen based on the desired bandwidth of the filter. A similar effect is observed with currents in the parallel circuit. Annales de Chimie et de Physique. The coefficients A 1 and A 2 are determined by the boundary conditions of the specific problem being analysed. The mechanical property answering to the resistor in the circuit is friction in the spring—weight system.

This is no passing metaphor; a weight on a spring is described by exactly the same second order differential equation as an RLC circuit and for all the properties of the one system there will be found an analogous property of the other. Equivalently, it can be defined as the frequency at which the impedance is purely real that is, purely resistive. All three elements in series or all three elements in parallel are the simplest in concept and the most straightforward to analyse.

The voltage ratio is, in fact, the Q of the circuit. This occurs because the impedances of the inductor and capacitor at resonance are equal but of opposite sign and cancel out. The RLC filter is described as a second-order circuit, meaning that any voltage or current in the circuit can be described by a second-order differential equation in circuit analysis.

A band-pass filter can be formed with an RLC circuit by either placing a series LC circuit in series with the load resistor or else by placing a parallel LC circuit in parallel with the load resistor.

RLC Low-Pass Filter Design Tool

RLC circuits have many applications as oscillator circuits. In this design, the core made of a high permeability material that has the effect of increasing inductance is threaded so that it can be screwed further in, or screwed further out of the inductor winding as required.


Analog circuits Electronic filter topology. The bandwidth is measured between the cutoff frequenciesmost frequently defined as the frequencies at which the power passed through the circuit has filgres to half the value passed at resonance.

There are, however, other arrangements, some with practical importance in real circuits. It determines whether or not the circuit will resonate naturally that is, without a driving source. The damping factor is given by [27]. The filter has a stop-band of this width.

The fractional bandwidth is also often stated as fiktres percentage. Adjustable tuning is commonly achieved with a parallel plate variable capacitor which allows the value of C to be changed and tune to stations on different frequencies.

Resonance occurs because energy is stored filtrex two different ways: D 1 and D 2 are arbitrary constants determined by boundary conditions. RLC circuit as a series band-pass filter in series with the line. It will drop a voltage across the inductor of. The initial conditions are that the capacitor is at voltage, V 0and there is no current flowing in the inductor.

It is the minimum damping that can be applied without causing oscillation. An RLC circuit can be used as a band-pass filterband-stop filterlow-pass filter cous high-pass filter. The three components give the designer three degrees of freedom. Radio receivers and television sets use them for tuning to select a narrow frequency range from ambient radio waves. An equal magnitude voltage will also be seen across the capacitor but in antiphase to the inductor.

The rlx forms a harmonic oscillator for current, and resonates in a similar way as an LC circuit.
