Inductance, L = 0.12 H
Capacitance, C = 480 nF = 480 × 10−9 F
Resistance, R = 23 Ω
Supply voltage, V = 230 V
Peak voltage is given as:
V0 = = 325.22 V
(a) Current flowing in the circuit is given by the relation,
I0 = maximum at resonance
At resonance, we have
ωR = Resonance angular frequency
And, maximum current
(b) Maximum average power absorbed by the circuit is given as:
Hence, resonant frequency () is
(c) The power transferred to the circuit is half the power at resonant frequency.
Frequencies at which power transferred is half, =
Hence, change in frequency,
Hence, at 648.22 Hz and 678.74 Hz frequencies, the power transferred is half.
At these frequencies, current amplitude can be given as:
(d) Q-factor of the given circuit can be obtained using the relation,
Hence, the Q-factor of the given circuit is 21.74.
