III.       PROCEDURE

 

A.        Simulation of a Parallel Resonance Circuit

  1. Construct the RLC parallel circuit shown in Figure 1. Simulate the circuit at the frequencies shown in Table 1. Note and record the current readings obtained in the table with switch S1 closed. This represents the inductor as an ideal inductor with zero wire resistance.

 

The inductor self-resistance, RL = 65 Ω, has been included in the schematic after measuring the actual component. If the inductor you choose has different DC resistance, please feel free to modify the circuit.

 

  1. Plot the data obtained above in the graph sheet below. Note: frequency should be on the X-axis; the source current IS (mA) should be on Y-axis.
