ECE 137A  Quiz #2 Solution Luis Chen Here, we assume ideal diode, i.e. No reverse current. Initially, E i = 1 2 C V C 2 At t>0, switch closes, charges flow from the capacitor to the diode. The diode is reverse  biased, and has depletion capacitance C depl To calculate, Ef, we need to find Vo(t) in steady state (Vf). Q i = C V C Q f = Q i = C C Depl V f C V C = C C Depl V f so V f = Vc C C C Depl where C Depl = C j0 1 V f / i , C j0 = q s 2 i Na Nd Na Nd V f = Vc C C C j0 1 V f / i Vf is difficult to solve symbolically, Had we been given the values of C, Vc and Area, then we  can solve it easily.  Let's take some numbers and see what we get, Assume C=20fF, Vc=1V, and A=1e-6 cm^2, Vc>0 t=0+ C Na=10 17 Nd=10 15 Lossless switch Vo(t)=0 for t<0 1. Calculate total energy before switch closes 2. Calculate total energy after switch closes 3. Is Ei=Ef, if not, why not

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
