FALL 2008 ENGR2200U ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING FUNDAMENTALS LAB MANUAL LABORATORY 1: LAB EQUIPMENT FAMILIARITY, MEASURING VOLTAGE AND CURRENT, VERIFICATION OF OHM’S AND KIRCHOFF'S LAW 1 OF 9 Laboratory 1: Lab Equipment Familiarity, Measuring Voltage and Current, Verification of Ohm’s and Kirchoff's Laws The electrical engineering fundamental laboratory consists of 12 identically equipped individual laboratory workstations. Each workstation includes a desktop computer loaded with Matlab, OrCAD/PSpice and instrument access software, as well as circuit construction kit with built-in power supply, breadboard, LEDs and switches, and Agilent electronic instruments including an oscilloscope, a desk top (DT) digital multimeter, an Agilent power supply unit, an Agilent function generator, and a hand held (HH) digital multimeter. Each workstation PC is also networked so that you can print or access the stored data from anywhere on the campus. All the necessary connecting wires/cables such as Banana/Alligator clips, oscilloscope probes and breadboard connecting wires are hanged on one side of each workstation. You are required to put back the wires/cables in the same place after use. Each lab-week (as opposed to tutorial-week) students are required to conduct experiments related to circuits. These exercises/ experiments provide tremendous reinforcement and application of not only the laboratory experiments, but also the classroom teachings. The computer software (such as Matlab, OrCAD/PSpice and Instrument interface software) provides help for simulating various circuits and their behaviour. 1.1 Objectives: 1) To know the laboratory policies and report formats. 2) To get familiar with various instruments available in the circuits laboratory. 3) To understand the laboratory safety issues and mandatory disciplinary requirements. 4) To learn the resistor color coding. 5) To make use of the Agilent digital multimeter to measure resistances, current, and voltage. 6) To build simple resistive circuits on a breadboard. 7) Use of Intuilink to acquire from the DMM and display data on the PC. 8) To confirm Ohm’s and Kirchoff’s Laws 1.2 Components and instruments Instruments Components Agilent Digital Oscilloscope (54622A) Agilent Function Generator (33220A) Agilent 3631A Power Supply Agilent DT Digital Multimeter (34401A)- (DT – Desk Top) XK150 Kit Resistors: various Capacitor: 1 nF Connecting wires: various

In most applications the graph shows how signals change over time: the vertical (Y) axis represents voltage and the horizontal (X) axis represents time. The intensity or brightness of the display is sometimes called the Z axis. We
