11.12 THE PARALLEL RLC CIRCUIT

We have dealt with the series RLC circuit in great detail and have developed considerable insight into the time-domain behaviour of second-order circuits in general. Moreover, we have also studied the frequency response of second-order circuits using series RLC circuit as an example. This will help us to draw parallels between the behaviour of series RLC circuit with another equally important, if not more important, circuit — the parallel RLC circuit.

Parallel RLC circuit finds application in almost all communications equipment (starting from radio receiver), sinusoidal oscillators, low-power and high-power filters, and electrical power systems. In fact, one can even state that analog communications will be impossible ...
