•Circuits that contain only one of the energy storage
elements are represented by a firstorder differential
equation. That is why these circuits are called firstorder
circuits
–Only one inductor and no capacitors.
–Only one capacitor and no inductors.
•Thévenin’s & Norton’s equivalent circuits are used to
simplify the analysis with one energy storage element

REMEMBER: Initial Conditions
•DC circuits
–Independent voltage and current sources are DC (constant) –They
don’t change with time.
•The circuit includes at least one capacitor or one inductor. (Ifmultiple
capacitors/inductors find the equivalent.)
•The change in capacitor voltage or in inductor current is NOT
instantaneous. It is continuous.
–We denote the time immediately before the switch opens/closes ast0
–We denote the time immediately after the switch opens/closes as t0+
–The capacitor voltage or inductor current have the same values right
before and right after the switch closes.
•A
capacitor
in a DC circuit behaves like an open circuitin steady state
.
•An
inductor
in a DC circuit behaves like a short circuitin steady state
.
•Draw
the circuit for before the switch operation
and after the switch
operation

•If the transient response (natural response) vanishes in time
and steadystate response is within limits (not increasing in
time; either settles down a value or oscillates within bounds),
then the circuit is called stable
.
•If the circuit is stable, then the steadystate (forced) response
depends on the input
to the circuit.
•If the circuit is unstable, then the forced response will
NOT
depend on the input
and the forced response cannot be called
steadystate. Since there is no settling.
•Recall the time constant τinsolutions of the RC and RL
circuits with DC input:

•Recall the time constant τinsolutions of the RC and RL
circuits with DC input:
•If the R(usually TheveninR) is larger than 0, the circuit is
stable.
•The negative TheveninRcan appear in circuits with
dependent sources
and OPAMPs
. It may not mean a practical
resistance.
•If there is no dependent source or OPAMPsconnected to the
capacitor/inductor, the circuit is guaranteed to be STABLE as
long as the TheveninR is larger than 0.
