Plane waves are just one example of time-harmonic fields In the rest of this course, 95% of the material will deal with time-harmonic fields 2 ECE 303 Fall 2007 Farhan Rana Cornell University Time-Harmonic Signals in Circuits Sinusoidal Steady State Consider an RC circuit driven by a sinusoidal voltage source: ~ +- R C ( ) ( ) t V t V o cos = ( ) t V R +- ( ) t V C ( ) [ ] t j o e V t V Re = ( ) ( ) [ ] t j R R e V t V Re = ( ) RC j RC j V V o R + = 1 ( ) t I ( ) ( ) [ ] t j e I t I Re = ( ) RC j C j V I o + = 1 Time-average power dissipation in the resistor: ( ) ( ) ( ) ( ) [ ] ( ) ( ) + = = 2 2 2 * 1 2 Re 2 1 C R C R R V I V t I t V o R R C j 1 Remember phasors from ECE210..
