Linear Waveshaping: Low-pass Circuits, Attenuators and RLC Circuits

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

After reading this chapter, you will be able to:

  • Derive the expressions and plot the responses of low-pass RC and RL circuits to different types of inputs, namely, sinusoidal, step, pulse, square-wave, exponential and ramp
  • Describe the application of a low-pass circuit as an integrator
  • Understand the principles of working of uncompensated and compensated attenuators
  • Realize the response of RLC circuits to step input
