Find the current and power


The current delivered by a current source is increased linearly from zero to 10 A in 1-ms time and then is decreased linearly back to zero in 2 ms. The source feeds a 3-k resistor in series with a 2-H inductor (see Fig. 2-24). (a) Find the energy dissipated in the resistor during the rise time ðW1 Þ and the fall time ðW2 Þ. (b) Find the energy delivered to the inductor during the above two intervals. (c) Find the energy delivered by the current source to the series RL combination during the preceding two intervals. Note: Series elements have the same current. The voltage drop across their combination is the sum of their individual voltages. Ans. ðaÞ W1 ¼ 100; W2 ¼ 200; (b) W1 ¼ 200; W2 ¼ 200; (c) W1 ¼ 300; W2 ¼ 0, all in joules


The voltage of a 5-mF capacitor is increased linearly from zero to 10 V in 1 ms time and is then kept at that level. Find the current. Find the total energy delivered to the capacitor and verify that delivered energy is equal to the energy stored in the capacitor. Ans. i ¼ 50 mA during 0 < t < 1 ms and is zero elsewhere, W ¼ 250 mJ.
