Complex Numbers
 Complex numbers involve the imaginary
number j  1

EE’s use j instead of i because i is used for
current
A complex number Z = x+jy


Basic Concepts
 Pure imaginary number has real part zero
 Pure real number has imaginary part zero
 Complex numbers of the form x+jy are in
rectangular form
 Complex conjugate of a number in
rectangular form is obtained by changing the
sign of the imaginary part

ex. Complex conjugate of z3 = 3-j4 is z3* = 3+j4

following to rectangular form:

Euler’s Identity
 What do complex numbers have to do with sinusoids?

Euler’s identity:
e j  cos   j sin  
ELEC 308

Exponential Form
The magnitude of e j is
e
j
 cos   j sin   = cos    sin    1

Therefore
e j  1  cos   j sin  
Any complex number A can be written as
A  Ae j
This is the exponentia l form of a complex number.

Sinusoidal Voltage
v t   Vm cost   
ELEC 308
14
Sinusoidal Signals
 Same pattern of values repeat over a duration
T, called the period


Sinusoidal signals complete one cycle when the
angle increases by 2π radians, or ωT = 2π
Frequency is number of cycles completed in one
second, or f = T-1


Units are hertz (Hz) or inverse seconds (sec-1)
Angular frequency given by ω = 2πf = 2πT-1


Sinusoidal Signals
 Argument of cosine or sine is ωt+θ

To evaluate cos(ωt+θ)

May have to convert degrees to radians, or vice versa

Phasors


Generally complicated if evaluating as timedomain functions
Facilitated if we represent voltages and currents
as vectors in the complex-number plane


These vectors are also called PHASORS
Convenient methods for adding and subtracting
sinusoidal waveforms (for KCL and KVL)

Standard trig. techniques too tedious

Voltage Phasors
For a sinusoidal voltage
v1 t   V1 cost  1 ,
The phasor is defined to be
V1  V11
For a sinusoidal voltage
v 2 t   V2 sin t   2 ,
The phasor is defined to be
V2  V2 2  90 o
because
sin z  cosz  90 o.

Current Phasors

For a sinusoidal current
i2 t   I2 sin t   2 ,

Phasors as Rotating Vectors
A sinusoidal voltage
can be written as
vt   Vm cost   

 Re Vm e j t  

 Re Vm t   

Phase Relationships
Consider the voltages
v1 t   3cost  40 o V1  340 o
and
v 2 t   4 cost  20 o V2  4  20 o
The angle between V1 and V2 is 60 o.
Because the complex vectors rotate counterclockwise,
we say that V1 leads V2 by 60 o, or V2 lags V1 by 60 o.
