There are two types of black boxes as shown in Table 1 below. Table 1: Types of Black Boxes Type Impedance Description SRL Series RL Circuit PRC Parallel RC Circuit In addition, type SRL can consist of a nonideal inductor having a small series resistance and type PRC can consist of a single, almost ideal, capacitor with no shunt resistor in parallel with it. 2.0.1 Series RL Circuit V 1 ~ + V 2 ~ (a) (b) R s R s R c R c j L L s s + + v (t) 1 + v (t) 2 Figure 1: Series RL Impedance Determination Consider the series RL circuit shown in Figure 1 where R s and L s are unknown elements to be determined. This unknown series impedance is placed in series with a calibrating series resistor with known value R c . Assume that the sinusoidal input and voltages, v 1 ( t ) and v 2 ( t ), respectively, v 1 ( t ) = 2 V 1 cos( t ) v 2 ( t ) = 2 V 2 cos( t ) = 2 AV 1 cos( t ) (1) 1 are observed with a dualtrace oscilloscope. The transfer function between the output phasor voltage V 2 and the input voltage phasor V 1 is obtained as V 2 V 1 = R c R c + R s + jL s = R c ( R c + R s ) 2 + ( L s ) 2 tan 1 L s R c + R s (2) On the other hand, V 2 V 1 = A (3) Therefore, the amplitude ratio of the two waveforms can be determined from the rms or peakto peak voltage magnitudes as A =  V 2   V...
