AC Circuits An AC circuit consists of a combination of circuit elements and an AC generator or source. An AC source in a circuit is designated by: In a simple circuit consisting of a resistor and an AC voltage source, the voltage drop across the resistor is equal to the voltage across the AC source.

AC Circuits The output of an AC generator is sinusoidal and varies with time according to the following equation: Δ v = Δ V max sin 2 π ft ( ) where Δ v is the instantaneous voltage across the AC generator, Δ V max is the maximum voltage of the AC generator, and f is the frequency at which the voltage changes (in 1/sec. = Hz)

AC Circuits We find that in a simple circuit consisting of a resistor and an AC generator, that the voltage drop, Δ v R , across the resistor and current through the resistor, i R , are maximum values at the same time. We say that the current and the voltage are “in phase” with each other. If one were shifted to the left or right in any way, then they would be “out of phase.”

AC Circuits The direction of the current has no effect on the behavior of the resistor. To a resistor I max in one direction is indistinguishable from I max in the opposite direction. The rate at which electrical energy is dissipated in the AC circuit is given by: where i is the instantaneous current.

    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.
