University of California at Santa Cruz Baskin School of Engineering EE-70L: Introduction to Circuits Lab Laboratory 2 Introduction: Building on what you have learned in lab 1, this experiment deals with resistive circuits. The emphasis is on how circuits, which may be large and complicated, can be described by simple equivalent circuit models. You will investigate how a real voltage source, such as a battery, deviates from its ideal circuit model. In addition, you will use the load line method to analyze a linear circuit. In the design part, you will see that you don’t need to know the internal structure of a circuit to draw the maximum power from it. Thevenin’s and Norton’s theorems allow you to determine the correct load with two quick measurements. At the end of this lab, you should be able to: Understand real voltage sources Replace an unknown circuit with a simple equivalent circuit Match a resistive load to an unknown circuit for maximum power transfer Understand graphical methods for linear circuits Topics from the lecture you need to be familiar with:
