## Resonant Frequency Formula and Derivation

The resonant frequency formula for series and parallel resonance circuit comprising of Resistor, Inductor and capacitor are different.  In this article, we will go through the resonant frequency formula for series as well as parallel resonance circuit and their derivation. We will also discuss the...

## Ripple Factor of Half Wave Rectifier

The value of ripple factor of single phase half wave rectifier is equal to 1.21. Since, ripple factor is the ratio of rms value of fluctuating ac component to the average value or dc value. Its value of 1.21 means that, the ac fluctuating component...

## What is Ripple and Ripple Factor? – Formula of Ripple Factor

What is Ripple? Ripple is the fluctuating AC component present in rectified DC output. The output of a rectifier may either be DC current or voltage. In view of this, AC fluctuating component present in DC output voltage is called voltage ripple and that in...

## Average Value of AC Current – Definition, Formula and Application

Definition Average value of AC or alternating current is expressed by that DC current which transfers across any point of circuit the same charge as is transferred by the AC current for the same time. This means, if AC current I in a circuit flows...

## Root Mean Square or RMS Value of AC – Definition, Formula and Calculation

Definition Root Mean Square (RMS) value of AC current is defined as the steady or DC current which when flowing through a circuit for a given time period produces the same heat as produced by the AC current flowing through the same circuit for the...

## Thevenin’s Theorem and Its Application

Thevenin’s Theorem is the most used and useful approach to solve electrical networks. This is not a new way or approach rather it’s the same conventional way what we use to solve electrical networks but in an organized manner. Let me explain why this is...

## Meaning of 1 Unit Electricity – Power Consumption Calculation

1 Unit Electricity is the amount of electrical energy consumed by a load of 1 kW power rating in 1 hour. It is basically measurement unit of electrical energy consumption in Joule. 1 kWh (kilo watt hour) and 1 Unit are same. 1 kWh is...

## Triplen Harmonics – Why are they in phase?

Definition: Triplen harmonics are the odd integral multiple of third harmonic wave. If the frequency of third harmonic wave is ω then frequency of triplen harmonic wave will be 3nω, where n = 3,5,9,…These waves posses a special characteristics and hence it becomes important for...
