An inductor is a passive two terminal element designed to store energy in its magnetic field. Inductor also called reactor or coil. It consists of conductor like wire wound into a coil. When current passing through the coil, energy is stored temporarily into the magnetic field. Applications of inductor in our daily life are transformers, power supplies, TVs, radios, radars etc. … [Read more...] about Inductor
A capacitor is an element which stores charges. It is a passive element as it stores energy. Michael Faraday invented capacitor. The unit of capacitance is Farad was the name of honor of Michael Faraday. In electronics, communication, power systems, computer etc field capacitors are extensively used. In circuit capacitor in an important circuit element, its role can not be … [Read more...] about What is capacitor?
Linear property is the linear relationship between cause and effect of an element. This property gives linear and nonlinear circuit definition. The property can be applied in various circuit elements. The homogeneity (scaling) property and the additivity property are both the combination of linearity property. … [Read more...] about Linearity property in electric circuit
Sometimes we are not sure in electric circuits that the resistors are neither in parallel nor in series. See the circuit below here the relation between R1 resistor and R6 resistor is series or parallel we are not sure. … [Read more...] about Delta to wye and wye to delta conversion
When a circuit has two or more independent sources, we can determine the contribution of each source applying nodal analysis or mesh analysis. Another way is to find out the contribution of the independent sources (voltage or current) is to apply superposition theorem. Superposition theorem is based on circuit linearity property. … [Read more...] about What is superposition?
