1.0 INTRODUCTON The purpose of the lab session was to analyse the circuit and network system in DC current using a range of analysis techniques. The current, voltage and power through the current and resistors obtained using the following concepts: -Series circuit -Parallel circuit -Thevenin’s Theorem -Maximum Power Transfer -Nodal Analysis -Mesh Analysis All measurements were taken on a Fluke 175 DMM to verify the calculated results. 2.0 SUMMARY OF RESULTS The graph of Thevenin’s equivalent circuit shows a parabolic relationship between load power and normalised resistance. Also the measured load powers of the resistors were almost similar to the calculated load power and the highest percentage difference being 3.13% for the Thevenin’s equivalent circuit. For Mesh Analysis, the highest percentage difference was 4.00%, which is still relatively small and thus does not detract reliability or accuracy from the overall results.. In nodal analysis, when calculating V R1 - V R5 it became clear that the wrong number was subtracted from the wrong number (e.g. we used x-y instead of y-x) and as a result, had the negatives and positives completely opposite from the results.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
