Inductors

An inductor is a coil of specific dimension used
to introduce specific amount of inductance to
a circuit

Inductance is the ability of an element to
oppose any sudden change in current

The inductance is calculated as follows:
L = (µ
0
. µ
r
. N
2
. A ) / l
Henry (H)

N is the number of turns of the coil

A is the cross section

l is the length of the coil

µ
0
is the permeability of air = 4

µ
r
is the relative permeability

At the instant the switch is closed:

The inductance of the coil will prevent any sudden
change in current

The initial current will be zero

The voltage drop across the coil is V (supply
voltage)

The inductance at this case acts as an open circuit

Later,

The current will build up from zero and continue
to increase as follows:
i
L
= (E/R) . (1

)
such that
τ
= L/R

At the end of the storage cycle, the current
reaches E/R.

Thus, the coil acts as a short circuit

Increasing R, storage process is faster

At the instant the switch is opened:

There should be a resistor R
2
to prevent spark
between switch terminals

The inductor will invert its terminal polarities to
act as a voltage source keeping the current in the
same direction

Later,

The current will decay from E/R

to zero according
to:

= (E/R

Such that

At the end of the decay cycle, the current
reaches zero.

Thus, the coil acts as an open circuit

Capacitors

A capacitor is an element constructed of two
parallel conducting plates separated by an
insulating material

Capacitance is a measure of a capacitor’s
ability to store charge on its plates

C= Q/V

I) Charging Cycle

At the instant the switch is at 1:

The initial current is E/R

The voltage drop across the resistor is V (supply
voltage)

The capacitance at this case acts as a short circuit

Later,

The current will decay during charging period as
follows:
i
ch
= (E/R) . (e

t/
τ
)
such that
τ
= R . C

At the end of the charging cycle, the current reaches
zero.

Thus, the capacitor is fully charged with the supply
voltage and acts as an open circuit

As R decreases, the charging time is faster

II) Discharging Cycle

At the instant the switch is at 2:

The initial current is E/R

The voltage drop across the resistor is V (capacitor
voltage)

The capacitance at this case acts as a voltage
source that supplies current in opposite direction

Later,

The current will decay during charging period as
follows:
i
dis
= (E/R) . (e

t/
τ
)
such that
τ
= R . C

At the end of the discharging cycle, the current
reaches zero.

Thus, the capacitor has finished its charge and acts
as an open circuit

As R decreases, the charging time is faster

Important Note

In a dc circuit, at steady state:

Any capacitor; replace with open circuit

Any inductor; replace with short circuit
