# Why is the series resonant circuit called an acceptor circuit?

Because the series resonant circuit has the lowest possible impedance at resonance frequency, thus allowing the AC current to circulate through it. At resonance frequency, XC=XL and XL-XC = 0. Therefore, the only electrical characteristic left in the circuit to oppose current is the internal resistance of the two components. Hence, at resonance frequency, Z = R. Note: This effect is probably better seen with vectors. Clarification: Resonant circuits come in two flavors, series and parallel. Series resonant circuits do have an impedance equal to zero at the resonant frequency. This characteristic makes series resonant circuits especially well suited to be used as basic pass-band filters (acceptors). However, parallel circuits present their maximum impedance at the resonant frequency, which makes them ideal for tuning purposes. Study guides
