Exponential Decay Sinusoidal Wave Oscillator[edit]

Consider circuit of RLC connected in series

When

The circuit has the ability to generate Exponenential Decreasing Amplitude Sinusoidal Wave

Summary[edit]

  1. Lossless LC series operates at Equililibrium has the capablities to generate Sinusoidal Wave
  2. Lossless LC series operates at Resonance has the capablities to generate Standing Sinusoidal Wave
  3. Lossy RLC series operates at Equililibrium has the capablities to generate Exponential Decrese Sinusoidal Wave
