AC/DC Theory: Tuned Circuits

AC/DC Theory: Tuned Circuits is part 14 of the AC/DC Theory 14-part training series.

The course explains common applications of tuned circuits and how they are used to establish frequencies for oscillators and to filter unwanted noise and signals. It also shows how improperly tuned circuits can cause other parts of circuitry to operate incorrectly.

Course objectives include:

  • Calculate impedance, current, voltage, power factor, and phase angle in RLC circuits
  • Calculate resonant frequency, capacitance value, or inductance value in RLC circuits
  • Describe series and parallel resonant circuits
  • Explain the relationship between bandwidth and Q
  • Describe four basic types of filters.
