MODULE-I Resonance: Series and Parallel resonance SERIES RESONANT CIRCUIT A resonant circuit (series or parallel) must have an inductive and a capacitive element. A resistive element will always be present due to the internal resistance of the source (Rs), the internal resistance of the inductor (Rl), and any added resistance to control the shape of the response curve (Rdesign). The basic conﬁguration for the series resonant circuit appears in Fig with the resistive elements listed above. The total impedance of this network at any frequency is determined by ZT=R +j XL-j XC= R +j (XL- XC) The resonant conditions described in the introduction will occur when XL= XC Removing the reactive component from the total impedance equation. The total impedance at resonance is then simply ZTs=R Representing the minimum value of ZT at any frequency. The subscript s will be employed to indicate series resonant conditions. The resonant frequency can be determined in terms of the inductance and capacitance by examining the defining equation for resonanceXL= XC 1 𝑓= 2𝜋√𝐿𝐶 which you will note is the maximum current for the circuit of Fig for an applied voltage E since Z is a minimum value. Consider also that the input voltage and current are in phase at resonance. QUALITY FACTOR: The quality factor Q of a series resonant circuit is deﬁned as the ratio of the reactive power of either the inductor or the capacitor to the average power of the resistor at resonance; that is 𝑟𝑒𝑎𝑐𝑡𝑖𝑣𝑒 𝑝𝑜𝑤𝑒𝑟 𝑄= 𝑎𝑣𝑒𝑟𝑎𝑔𝑒 𝑝𝑜𝑤𝑒𝑟
The quality factor is also an indication of how much energy is placed in storage (continual transfer from one reactive element to the other) compared to that dissipated. The lower the level of dissipation for the same reactive power, the large the Q, factor and the more concentrated and intense the region of resonance. Substituting for an inductive reactance in Eq. (20.8) at resonance gives us 𝑋𝐿 𝜔𝐿 𝑄= = 𝑅 𝑅 Since the quality factor of a coil is typically the information provided by manufacturers of inductors, it is often given the symbol Q without an associated subscript. It would appear that Q will increase linearly with frequency since XL =2πfL. That is, if the frequency doubles, then Ql will also increase by a factor of 2. This is approximately true for the low range to the mid-range of frequencies. Unfortunately, however, as the frequency increases, the effective resistance of the coil will also increase, due primarily to skin effect phenomena, and the resulting Q will decrease. In addition, the capacitive effects between the windings will increase, further reducing the Ql of the coil. For this reason, Q must be specified for a particular frequency or frequency range. For wide frequency applications, a plot of Q versus frequency is often provided. SELECTIVITY plot the magnitude of the current I=E/ZT versus frequency for a fixed applied voltage E, we obtain the curve shown in Fig, which rises from zero to a maximum value of E/R (where ZT is a minimum) and then drops toward zero (as Z increases) at a slower rate than it rose to its peak value. The curve is actually the inverse of the impedance-versus-frequency curve. Since the ZT curve is not absolutely symmetrical about the resonant frequency, the curve of the current versus frequency has the same property.
