NATURAL RESPONSE (NO SOURCE PRESENT)
Given:
Initial:
t=0:
Goal:
Series RLC circuit (resistor+inductor+capacitor connected together).
Capacitor is charged up to v(0) and inductor is “juiced” up to i(0).
Close or throw the switch at t = 0. Recall i(t) and v(t) don’t jump.
Compute current through inductor (and everything else) i(t) for t &gt; 0.

Note: Any circuit variable satisﬁes this diﬀerential equation. So use the following procedure to compute inductor current iL (t) or capacitor voltage vC (t) (usually easiest), then compute other quantities from those.
Soln: The trial solution i(t) = Iest solves the above diﬀerential equation if

where: C1 and C2 are determined by the initial conditions v(0) and i(0).
Note: Follows from linearity of diﬀerential equation; C1 and C2 are deterdi +
mined by the initial conditions, used to determine i(0+ ) and dt

Complete: vC (t) = Ce(−1+j3)t +C ∗ e(−1−j3)t = C1 e−t cos(3t)+C2 e−t sin(3t)where:
Solve: 0 = vC (0+ ) = C1 and −10 = dvdtC (0+ ) = 3C2 → C2 = −3.33.
Sol’n: vC (t) = −3.33e−t sin(3t) for t &gt; 0. Plug this in and conﬁrm it works.
Note: Since vC (0+ ) = 0, can see that there will be no cosine term in vC (t).
