DC Analysis

Schematic

Procedure

for Building the Schematic

1.

Open PSpice Schematics.

Note:
All the components in PSpice are arranged in libraries. To get one, use
Draw/Get New Part/Part Name
.

Le
ft Click

on mouse will place the component and
Right Click

2.

Take resistance by typing
r

and place in appropriate places.

To rotate any component,
use
CTL R
.

3.

Double Click

on the part value to open
set attribute value

dialog box. Ent
er the
appropriate values
.

4.

Take the voltage source
VDC
and current source
IDC
and enter the values.

5.

To display the current, take
IPROBE
.

6.

Wire the circuit using
Draw Wire

option.

7.

Take the
VIEWPOINT

to display the node voltage.

8.

Any schematic will not work wi
thout a ground. So take
AGND
.

9.

Save the circuit before simulation. Then go to
Analysis/Simulate
. The current and
voltage values will be displayed on the schematic.

DC Sweep

Analysis

1.

For Dc sweep analysis

, Go to
Analysis/setup/DC sweep
. Double click on
DC

sweep
.

2.

Fill the source which has to be swept

and fill the attributes for the range over which it
has to be swept.

click ok

3.

Then go to
Analysis/Simulate

it

will automatically open the

Probe
.

will open the dialog box.

Select
I(
R
1),
I(R21),

I(R31),
V1(
R
1)
and

V
1
(
R2
1)

in the
Trace Expression

to display the dc
sweep

waveform.

DC
Transient Analysis

Schematic

Procedure

for Building the Schematic

1.

Take

resistance by

r
, inductor by
L

and capacitor by
c
and set the values.

2. Take

the Pu
lse Generator,
VPWL

for DC Transient Analysis.
Double click

on the
model.

Enter the following values:

T1=
0

V1=0

T2=0.001

V2=12

V1=0

T2=0.001

V2=12

T3=2

V3=12

T4=2.001

V4=0

Click ok.

3
.
Wire

the circuit and put
AGND
.

4.

Save the
schematic

in different name.

5.

Go to
Analysis/Setup
.

6.

Enable
Transient

and click on the button. Enter
Final Time

as 4s.

7.

Analysis/Simulate

will automatically open the

Probe
.

8.

will open the dialog box. Select
I(L1), V1(V1)
and

V2(C1)

in

the
Trace Expression

to display the dc transient wave
form
.

DC Analysis

Schematic

Procedure

for Building the Schematic

1.

Assignment
Problem:

A.

Construct a circuit using Pspice simulation software satisfying the following condition.

1. The circuit should have at least 7 elements
including sources

and resistors.

2. The cir
cuit should have at least one

voltage and one current source .

3. The circuit should have at least 3 loops so that there will be parallel as well
as series

resistor combinations.

B.

Simulate the circuit using Pspice to obtain all the mesh currents and nod
e voltages.

Display those on schematic
diagram.
Plot the currents and
voltages.

Display all traces in one
window.

C.

Using DC sweep
analysis,

sweep the voltage from 2
-

20V and plot the power delivered/absorbed
by each element .Also using Transient Analysis o
btain the power delivered /absorbed by each
element.
Display
all traces

of transient and all traces of DC sweep in one window.

D. Verify all your results algebraically.

Each
student

is

required to submit a re
port for this lab

on the next Lab
day
. The report should be formal with all the schematics and results.
(Probes, output files etc.)
