- Summary
- In RLC series circuit, the voltage across circuit elements may be higher than the source voltage, which is contrary to DC series circuit.

One property of series resonance circuit is that at resonance, the voltage across circuit elements R,L and C may be larger than the source voltage. I can relate it to vector analogy where component vectors may have larger values than the resultant and the phenomenon is counter-intuitive. This does not happen in DC circuits where sum of voltage across circuit components is always equal to the source voltage. Any useful intuitive explanation of this effect please?
