In this lab step responses of RC and RLC circuits will be generated and studied.
1. Construct the circuit shown in figure 1.
Predicted | Measured | |
Initial Value, v_{out}(0) | ||
Final (steady-state) Value, v_{out,ss} = v_{out}(&infin) | ||
10% - 90% Rise Time, T_{r} | ||
(Within 5%) Settling Time, T_{s} | ||
Percent Overshoot, 100%(peak value - v_{out,ss}) / v_{out,ss} | ||
Time Constant, τ |
2. Determine values of R, L, and C for the circuit shown in figure 3 so that
the step response is a damped sinusoid with an exponential decay governed
by an α of 10^{5} (i.e. the damped sinusoidal response goes
to e^{-1} of its final value in 10 μseconds) and a frequency
of 1MHz. Use the 0.47mH inductor in your parts kit for L.
