ME 340 – Chapter 4 Summary Circuits with inductors and capacitors can be analyzed for their transient and steady state responses to determine the current or voltage equations for the overall circuit. For steady state conditions in which the time is around 5 time constants for the circuit, inductors behave as short circuits, while capacitors behave as open circuits. First order or second order linear differential equations must be solved for one or two energy storage elements, respectively.

Unformatted text preview: The transient response solution is the sum of the particular solution, also known as the forced response, and the homogeneous solution, also known as the natural response. The natural response for a second order circuit depends on the damping ratio and undamped resonant frequency. If the damping ratio is greater than one, the circuit is overdamped. If it is equal to one, the circuit is critically damped. And if it is less than one, the circuit is underdamped. 1...

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.
