Simulation of an RC Circuit

by Keith Patterson


Submitted : Spring 2012

This project is about showing how different forcing functions change the voltage over a capacitor in an RC circuit. Starting off by studying over the first order Euler integration method and using the equations I am given, I am able to achieve equations that can be used to determine the voltage over the capacitor based upon the voltage put out by each forcing function. Then using all the constants and equations I have at my disposal, I insert my first forcing function (E=20) into the equations and calculate the first 10 increments of time. By using excel I am able to come up with the rest of the calculations for the first forcing function and then the remaining 2 forcing functions.
