Hi everyone.
I am a beginner to circuit analysis.
I have got two circuits to study. I would like to measure their performance based on some quantity (such as output power or Qfactor).
So I have attached the circuits here please take a look.
I know how to calculate the Qfactor for a normal serial resonant circuit or a parallel resonant circuit. But what I dont know is how do you calculate the Qfactor of the whole circuit (loaded) when the circuit is not just a normal serial/parallel resonant circuit.
Should we make it to simple serial circuit/parallel circuit and then find the total resistance and the reactance of the circuit ? , I dont know. [And again I am not familiar with converting these circuits to serial equivalent or parallel equivalent, I know only if the circuit has only resistive elements but not when it has RLC components in it].
So if someone can explain me how the QFactor of the circuit can be calculated.
or
If some other performance measure can tell which circuit is better.
then that would be a lot of help. Thanks.
