Quality Factor (Q) • Internal series resistance of an inductor is almost always greater than internal series resistance of a capacitor » Resistance of inductor is primarily responsible for Q of circuit • Q = X / R ≈ XL / R = 2∏f. L / R • Q always goes down when resistance is added in series with a component • Increasing frequency increases Q

Quality Factor (Q) Quality factor (Q) of a resonant ckt is a measure of the “goodness” For Parallel Resonant Circuits, where a large value of R is in parallel with C and L Q = R/X Where: X = Capacitive or Inductive reactance at resonance R = Resistance Note: Q = X/R for a small R in series with L. This is the case in practical applications, as we are mostly concerned with the internal resistance of the inductor limiting the Q.

Quality Factor (Q) Note: During our class I was not satisfied with the explanation I gave for the note at the bottom of the previous slide. Better explanation provided below. Q = Pstored/Pdissipated = I 2 X / I 2 R Q=X/R where: X = Capacitive or Inductive reactance at resonance R = Series resistance This formula is applicable to series resonant circuits, and also parallel resonant circuits if the resistance is in series with the inductor. This is the case in practical applications, as we are mostly concerned with the resistance of the inductor limiting the Q. Some text show Q = R / X for a parallel resonant circuit. This is correct for a large value of R in parallel with L and C. Q = X / R is correct for a small R in series with L
