Doing my HNC in electrical and electronic engineering and just over half way through now, come across this in my latest module and for some reason I can not get my head around it, I'll post the question and my attempts below, any help would be greatly appreciated just to see if I am...
I build an RLC circuit using the MCP1402 as a gate driver. At resonance the MCP1402 will drive a 20 ohms load (plus 3 ohms which is the DCR of the coil). Unfortunately the MCP1402 has around 12 ohms output impedance (according to this) and so it cannot drive the load effectively. A more...
I plan to design a series RLC discharge circuit as shown:
Taking into account component parasitics, the actual circuit resembles the following:
'R' = capacitor ESR + load resistance + inductor ESR,
'L' = capacitor ESL + load inductance ≈ load inductance
According to online...
