PARALLEL RC AND RL CIRCUITS

Experiment 3
PARALLEL RC AND RL CIRCUITS

I.

OBJECTIVES

To study the characteristics of parallel RC and RL circuits.


II.

DISCUSSION:
The characteristic of a parallel circuit by which it is defined is that the same
voltage appears across all parallel branches. Therefore, in preparing a phasor diagram for
any parallel circuit, we always use this common voltage as the reference phasor.

III.

INSTRUMENTS AND COMPONENTS:


AC Voltmeter
AC Ammeter
Lamp, 220V
1H Inductor
4 F Capacitor
Connecting wires

IV.

PROCEDURE:
1.
2.
3.
4.

Connect the circuit shown in Figure 12.1


Measure and record the voltage and the indicated currents of the circuit.
Using Ohms Law, compute the magnitude of the total impedance of the circuit.
Using the individual impedance of the elements, compute the total impedance of
the circuit.
5. Compute the percent difference between these two values of impedance.
6. Connect the circuit shown in Figure 12.2 and repeat steps 2 to 5.
