Electronics Night is an irregularly scheduled study group on an intermediate or advanced topic in electronics.
This session will be on the AC analysis of basic passive components: resistors, inductors and capacitors.
Topics we could cover:
• Basic model of capacitors and inductors
• RC circuits and time constant
• RLC circuits, especially as found the amateur radio exams
• Filters and resonance
• Power transfer and characteristic impedance
