Simulation of Electronic Circuits using Pspice
These independent workshops primarily covered the first year basic electrical engineering course.
It was divided into two phases: (a) schematics and (b) analysis. The following active components were discussed:
- sine voltage and current sources,
- piecewise voltage and current sources,
- pulse voltage and current sources and exponential current and voltage sources.
In this workshop the students were also taught to design half wave and full wave sinusoidal rectifiers, clippers, clampers and peak rectifier circuits. It was explained that how to get parts, wire the circuit and place the markers. Then how to use VSIN and PWL VOLTAGE sources, VPULSE source, VOFF attributes of the sources. A circuit for different values of R and L simultaneously was simulated and described the advantages of using simulation software were also explained. Students were also invited to design their own circuits and simulate them to get results on the probe.
The same workshop was repeated on request on the 1st and 2nd of December and was an enhanced version of the first workshop.
