RC circuit simulation

0

0

The code creates a Tkinter window and defines three labels, one for the resistor value (R), one for the capacitor value (C), and one for the initial voltage (V0). It also creates a button to start the simulation.

Inside the main loop, the code first sets the values of R, C, and V0 from the boxes. It then calculates the current at each time step using the following equation:

I.append(C * (V[i] - V[i-1]) / dt + V[i] / R)

Next, the code calculates the voltage at each time step using the following equation:

V.append(V[i] + dt * I[i] / C)

Finally, the code updates the labels and boxes with the current and voltage values at each time step.

``````import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
from tkinter import *

# Function to start the simulation when the "Start" button is clicked
def start():
# Get the values of R, C, and V0 from the boxes
R = float(box_R.get())
C = float(box_C.get())
V0 = float(box_V0.get())

# Circuit parameters
# R = 1  # resistance, in ohms
# C = 1  # capacitance, in farads
# V0 = 1  # initial voltage, in volts

# Simulation parameters
dt = 0.01  # time step, in seconds
t_max = 10  # maximum time, in seconds

# Initialize arrays for storing voltage and current
t = [0]  # time
V = [V0]  # voltage
I = [0]  # current

# Iterate over time steps
for i in range(int(t_max / dt)):
# Compute current at time t[i]
I.append(C * (V[i] - V[i-1]) / dt + V[i] / R)
# Compute voltage at time t[i+1]
V.append(V[i] + dt * I[i] / C)
# Update time
t.append(t[i] + dt)

# Plot voltage and current as a function of time
plt.plot(t, V, label='Voltage')
