Determine the voltage across the inductor in an RL circuit:

RL Circuit Analysis

Let us compute the voltage across the inductor for t≥0 using the following expression:

${{v}_{L}}(t)=-R{{I}_{lo}}{{e}^{-t/\tau }}u(t)$

Whereas the inductor initial current is 1mA and time constant τ=L/R=5ms.

It’s time to write some code in Matlab to calculate the inductor voltage:
