Physical fundamentals Oscillations Electrical oscillations can be clearly illustrated by means of mechanical oscillations. In the case of mechanical spring oscillation, a periodical change takes place between potential and kinetic energy (potential energy and motive energy). Analogous to this, electrical and magnetic field energy changes in the case of electromagnetic oscillation. A comparison of mechanical and electrical values is provided by: • Deflection x Charge q • Load m Inductance L • Friction constant k Resistance R • Spring constant D Reciprocal of capacitance 1/C Fig. 11.1.1: Comparison of mechanical and electrical oscillations 156 © Festo Didactic GmbH & Co. KG • FP 1110 11. Physical fundamentals The LC resonant circuit Electromagnetic oscillations are created in a so-called LC resonant circuit consisting of a coil and a capacitor. Once the capacitor is loaded, it discharges via the coil. During this process, current intensity and voltage change periodicall...
