12.3 PHASOR DIAGRAM OF SERIES RLC CIRCUIT

The nature of the phasor diagram of a series RLC circuit depends on the
frequency f of the applied signal in relation to the frequency of resonance f0.
Three different cases may be considered:

(i) f = fr,     (ii) f < fr, and     (iii) f > fr.

with f = f0, the reactance XL of inductor L equals the reactance
of capacitor C.

The circuit is then purely resistive and the voltage V across the circuit is
in phase with the current I. The phasor diagram for the series RLC circuit
of Figure 12.4 for the series resonance condition is shown in Figure 12.4(a).

(a ) f = fr                  (b) f < fr               (c) f > fr

With f < fr, the negative reactance Xc of capacitor C exceeds the positive
reactance XL of inductor L. Hence, the overall reactance is capacitive.
Current I leads the applied voltage V.

Scalar Network Analyzers
Scalar network analyzers measure the amplitude portion of scattering or S-parameters, reflection and transmission coefficients between the incident and reflection waves that describe a device’s behavior under linear conditions at the microwave frequency range.
Vector Network Analyzers
Vector network analyzers (VNA) measure the complex transmission and reflection characteristics of two-port devices in the frequency domain.
RF Band Pass Filters
RF band pass filters are active or passive circuits that pass signals from a specific frequency band and reject signals from out-of-band frequencies. Surface acoustic wave (SAW) filters, crystal filters, and cavity filters are types of band pass filters.
RF Band Reject Filters
RF band reject filters are tuned circuits that prevent the passage of signals within a specified band of frequencies. These devices are also known as bandstop or notch filters.
RF Low Pass Filters
RF low pass filters pass signals from low frequencies and reject signals from high frequencies.
