# Ray Tools: AC Impedance Simulator 1.0

Company: MEA Mobile
Date Added: October 02, 2014  |  Visits: 280

Solving Ohms law for DC (E=I*R) is straight forward but what about AC. For AC (E=I*Z) looks simple but the value Z is composed of an inductor (a coil of wire) and a Capacitor. The AC frequency affects these calculations in a somewhat complex manner. This program makes calculating easy. Like my other program for just DC , select the value to solve for; either E, I or Z then the program takes over and calculates many other values such as Inductive reactance, Capacitive reactance, needed to calculate Z. A Glossary sheet helps you understand all variables. The inputs switch when you change the variables by just a little bit. Helps understand how the Equations work. All values change as you input values either by keyboard or UP/DN adjusters. Warns for division by zero and sets value to near zero. When your done just Email the results to your home base for review on any text editor or spreadsheet. This program is a must for Students and Engineers. It makes the complex understandable. Simply the best AC Ohms Calculator.

Example:
A home electrical system supplies current to an electric drill:
E = 113.5 [VAC] 60 [Hz] I = 2.80 [amps] R = 2.2 [ohms]

If you solve for I using the DC equation I = E/R you get I = 51.59 [amps]. What Gives? In an AC circuit I = E/Z. Z is composed of a resistor equal to 2.2 ohms and an inductive coil in the motor L [henrys] and a capacitive component C [farads]. The capacitive component is almost negligible and so leave it at 1 e-8 for now. Select Solve for I. Input 113.5 [volts] for E and 2.2 [ohms] for R. Now increase the value of L [henrys] until you get 2.2 [amps]. The result is .107 [henrys] inductance. Problem solved. The capacitance can remain where it is unless changed for another problem. The value used 1.0 e-8 is probably good for most electrical systems unless you example has extra capacitance. Try solving for other variables using the adjuster buttons to see how the equations work. Check out the help, Glossary and Math sheets.
