Series Resonance

A series circuit comprising an inductance L, a resistance R and a capacitance C has an impedance ZS of:

ZS = R + j(XL – XC)

where XL = wL and XC = 1 / wC

At resonance, the imaginary part of ZS is zero:

XC = XL

ZSr = R

wr = (1 / LC)½ = 2pfr

The quality factor at resonance Qr is:

Qr = wrL / R = (L / CR2)½ = (1 / R )(L / C)½ = 1 / wrCR

Parallel resonance

A parallel circuit comprising an inductance L with a series resistance R, connected in parallel with a capacitance C, has an admittance YP of:

YP = 1 / (R + jXL) + 1 / (- jXC) = (R / (R2 + XL2)) – j(XL / (R2 + XL2) – 1 / XC)

where XL = wL and XC = 1 / wC

At resonance, the imaginary part of YP is zero:

XC = (R2 + XL2) / XL = XL + R2 / XL = XL(1 + R2 / XL2)

ZPr = YPr-1 = (R2 + XL2) / R = XLXC / R = L / CR

wr = (1 / LC – R2 / L2)½ = 2pfr

The quality factor at resonance Qr is:

Qr = wrL / R = (L / CR2 – 1)½ = (1 / R )(L / C – R2)½

Note that for the same values of L, R and C, the parallel resonance frequency is lower than the series resonance frequency, but if the ratio R / L is small then the parallel resonance frequency is close to the series resonance frequency.
