## RESISTOR AND INDUCTOR IN SERIES

I. Objectives:

The activity aims to find the voltage and current in a series resistor and inductor
connected across an AC source. This also aims to investigate how impedance varies as
the frequency changes.

## 1. Measure the current and voltages in a series RL circuit.

2. Verify the characteristics of a series AC circuit that has resistance and inductance.
3. Discuss the effect of frequency to the impedance of a series RL circuit.

## II. Discussion/ Background of the Experiment/ Concept and Theories

Series RL circuits are encountered very often in electronic equipment. When ac voltage is
applied to this type of circuit, the current is the same through each component. However, the
voltage that drops across each component is distributed according to the relative value of
resistance (R) and inductance in the circuit.

The total opposition to current is called impedance (Z). Resistance and reactance in AC circuits
both oppose the current. The impedance of an AC circuit is expressed as follows:

Z=

Z = 2 + 2

IV. Procedure:

A. FIXED FREQUENCY
1. Construct the series RL circuit shown in Figure 6-1.

## Figure 6-1. RL series circuit

2. Measure the current in the circuit.
IT=_________________

3. Measure the total voltage, the voltage across the resistor, and the voltage across the
inductor.
VT=_________________
VR=_________________
VL=_________________
4. Using a power analyzer, measure the following:
P=_________________
QL=_________________
S=_________________
pf=_________________
5. Using the values obtained in procedures 2 and 3, calculate the following:
(a) Resistance: R = VR/IR =_________________
(b) Inductive reactance: XL = VL/IL =_________________
(c) Impedance: Z = VT/IT =_________________
Note: In series RL circuit IT = IR = IL
6. Calculate the following values of the circuit in Figure 6-1:

(a) Inductive reactance: XL = 2fL =_________________

## (b) Impedance: Z = 2 + 2 =_________________

(c) Total current: IT = VT/Z =_________________
(d) Voltage across the resistor: VR = IRR =_________________
(e) Voltage across the inductor: VL = ILXL =_________________
(f) True power: P = IR2R =_________________
(g) Inductive reactive power: QL = IL2 XL =_________________
(h) Apparent power: S = IT2Z=_________________
(i) Power factor: pf = P/S =_________________
7. Draw an impedance triangle, phasor diagram, and power triangle of the calculated
values and measured values.

B. CHANGING FREQUENCY

1. Using again the circuit in figure 6.1, measure the total current (I) and compute the
impedance (Z = VT/ IT)

## 2. Repeat procedure no. 1 by changing the frequency to 1600, 3200, 6400Hz.

3. Compute the impedance in each frequency. Plot a graph of impedance against the
frequency.
