Common Mistakes:

These are some common mistakes.... if you find additional common mistakes send them to me to list them. This way  we can avoid them and make them less common

1) Analysis of Balanced Three Phase Circuits

  • Mixing angular frequency (rad/sec) with frequency in (Hz). Do not forget to do the proper transformation.

  • Remember that adding or subtracting 360 degrees does not change the angle. (240 is equivalent to -120). Also when using the calculator do no forget to make sure that it is set properly to radians or degrees.

  • When asked to find the three phase voltages or currents, do not forget to find the values for the other two phases.

  • cos is used as a reference with angle zero. If sin  is used it has to be converted to sin if need be. sin x= cos (x-90).

  • Line Voltages (VAB,VBC,VCA or Vab,Vbc,Vca) does not equal to voltage drop across the line (VaA, VbB, VcC). This is a very common mistake.

  • If the frequency is negative do not forget to do the proper change on the angle.

  • When using the equation for complex power, the conjugate is usually forgotten.

  • If the total power is given do not forget to divide by 3 to draw the single phase.

  • If the load is given as delta, you need to divide by three to draw the single phase equivalent.

  • If the complex power is give as P+j Q, we cannot directly represent this as resistance and inductance !

2) Natural & Step response of Series and Parallel RLC Circuits

  • alpha for series is different than alpha for parallel circuit. It is very common to mix them.

  • When finding the type of response it is very common to compare mega^2 with alpha.. You should compare omega with alpha.

  • After finding the constant in the response you should assign it to the proper exponent (or expression). It is very common to write A1 in place of A2 and so on.


  • For Q = 2π

Remember that the maximum energy stored is measured after summing W(t)C & W(t)L not individually and do not forget 2π.

  • Q is measured at resonance.
  • When finding the power lost in R do not forget 1/2 if I is an amplitude value.
  • For impedance scaling :

            R'=kmR            L'=kmL             C'=C/km           ωr'= ωr             BW'= BW

  • For frequency scaling :

                R'=R                L'=L/kf             C'=C/kf            ωr'=kf ωr           BW'= kf BW

  • Do not mix up the symbols of poles "X" and zeros "O" in pole-zero plot.
  • For the total energy stored in coupled coil

w(t)=1/2 L1 i12(t) + 1/2 L2 i22(t)  M i1(t) i2(t)

there is no 1/2 before M.

Here is a nice one
