Transient Response of RLC Networks Revisited

  • Suhash Chandra Dutta Roy

As compared to the conventional approach of trial solutions for solving the differential equation governing the transient response of RLC networks, we present here a different approach which is totally analytical. We also show that the three cases of damping, viz. overdamping, critical damping and underdamping, can be dealt with in a unified manner from the general solution. Won’t you appreciate my innovations? Please do and encourage me.
