If XC = XL - then resonant. g. 12 Resonance (Series) Consider a series LCR circuit where: 1 C X L L R L C XC the resonant frequency R vtotal and at some frequency, XC = XL. 707i High Q factor condition for resonance At the resonant frequency, with XL = XC, the impedance Z will be a minimum. ZR The current i will then be a maximum (and in phase with the voltage v). v) The Q factor is an indication of the sharpness of the peak. High Q indicates sharp peak, low Q broad peak. 707i Resonant frequency R2 1 LC Note: this is resonance for an LCR series circuit.
