The current phasor ( I ) is always parallel to VR𝜙 is angle between VR and VIf XC>XL then 𝜙 is positive and the circuit is predominantly capacitive.So in this case the current in the circuit leads the source voltage.
If XC<XL then 𝜙 is negative and the circuit is predominantly inductive.So in this case the current in the circuit lags the source voltage.
Frequencies at which the response of the amplitude is maximum is known as resonant frequencies.Current amplitude is maximum at resonant frequencies.
In RLC circuitim=Vm
Current amplitude is maximum when impedance (Z) is miniumZ is minumim when XC=XLThe frequency at which impedance (Z) is minimum is called resonant frequency.
Resonant CircuitIn AC circuit with inductor and capacitor: When frequency of AC is changed at certain frequency so that impedance becomes maximum or minimum, then that condition is called resonance and such a circuit is called resonant circuit

Energy losses happens in transformer due to followinga. Flux Leakage: There is always some flux leakage; that is, not all ofthe flux due to primary passes through the secondary due to poordesign of the core or the air gaps in the core. It can be reduced bywinding the primary and secondary coils one over the other.b. Resistance of the windings: The wire used for the windings has someresistance and so, energy is lost due to heat produced in the wire (I2R) . In high current, low voltage windings, these are minimised byusing thick wire. c. Eddy currents: The alternating magnetic flux induces eddy currentsin the iron core and causes heating. The effect is reduced by having alaminated core. d. Hysteresis: The magnetisation of the core is repeatedly reversed bythe alternating magnetic field. The resulting expenditure of energy in the core appears as heat and is kept to a minimum by using a magnetic material which has a low hysteresis loss.
Rectification is the process in which an alternating current is forced to only flow in one direction.
Half-wave Rectification:a. Dalf wave rectifier is allows one half-cycle of an AC voltage waveform to pass, blocking the other half-cycle.b. half of the power is lost in half-wave rectification.
Full-wave Rectificationa. Full wave rectifier converts both halves of each cycle of an alternating wave (AC signal) into pulsating DC signal.
