Designing good models is a task the computer cannot do. Hence setting up models has become an important task in modern applied mathematics. The best way to gain experience in successful modeling is to carefully examine the
modeling process in various elds and applications. Accordingly, modeling electric circuits will be protable for all students, not just for electrical engineers
and computer scientists. Setting up the Model
We try to model the RLC circuit given below and nd the total current I(t) for the circuit. Note the physical laws will be taking into consideration: • Current is dened as the time rate change of charge at a particular point.
This gives the formula: d

crcuits equals the electromotive force provided by the cell. • Kircho Current Law (KCL): At any point in the circuit, the amount
of inowing current at that point is equal to the amount of outowing
current. Assuming that R, L C, and by KVL, we have ∆Vind + ∆Vres + ∆Vcap = ∆Vcell

I = V0 ω cos ωt This is an nonhomogeneous linear second order dierential equation with constant coecients. Solving the ODE for I(t)
The general solution of the ODE is the sum I(t) = Ih + Ip .

3 Therefore the general solution for the nonhomogeneous linear ODE that we
were modeling is I(t) = c1 eλ1 t + c2 eλ2 t + I0 sin(ωt − θ)
Notice that as time
and e λ2 t → 0. t increases (the experiment continues), the terms This is since λ1 = −α + β and λ2 = −α − β are both negative
0. Thus, we obtain the values and exponentials of large negative values tend to
steadystate solution of the model I(t) = I0 sin(ωt − θ) 4 eλ1 t → 0 ...
