ECE 211 Fall 2009
Circuit Analysis I
Project 2
(due Wed, Oct14, at the beginning of lecture)
Objectives
To learn more about MATLAB and also to compute values to compare to Virtual Lab results.
Required Output
For each problem, submit a printout of the .m file, with comments to indicate the problem and part (a, b, c).
Also submit a printout of the command window after running your .m file, with answers boxed and labeled.
P3.
Consider the following circuit:
Find the Thevenin equivalent circuit as seen at terminals
a

b
, as follows.
(a)
Write a node equation at
V
when the terminals are left open.
Use MATLAB to compute the open
circuit voltage between
a
and
b
.
This is
oc
V
.
(b)
Write a node equation at
V
when the terminals are shorted.
Use MATLAB to compute the short
circuit current between
a
and
b
.
This is
sc
I
.
(c)
Use MATLAB to compute
sc
oc
th
/
I
V
R
=
.
In other words, you should not
spend any time simplifying your expressions for
V
in parts (a) and (b).
Rather,
you should use MATLAB to compute
V
for you.
