10.7 LINEARITY AND SUPERPOSITION PRINCIPLE IN DYNAMIC CIRCUITS

We have been dealing with unit step response of RL circuit until now. How do we get the solution if it is not unit step, but a step of size V? In short, how do we solve the series RL circuit if the input source function is Vu(t)? Can we just multiply the unit step response by V to get the solution for this input?

We know that memoryless circuits containing linear passive resistors, linear dependent sources and independent sources will be linear and will obey the superposition principle. We examine the issue of linearity of circuits containing one or more energy storage elements along with resistors, linear dependent sources and independent sources in this section. We are already familiar ...
