Laboratory #10: AC Measurements November 15, 2010 Ben Rainey Objectives: This experiment introduced the operation and use of the AC wattmeter, and single-phase series circuits containing resistance, inductance, and capacitance. There were two main objectives for this experiment. Objective one was to prove Kirchhoff’s voltage law (KVL). Objective two was to observe power consumption in circuit elements. Equipment: 1.) AC Voltmeters 2.) AC ammeter 3.) Wattmeter 4.) Power decade resistance box 5.) 120 mH inductor 6.) 40 µF capacitor 7.) Autotransformer power supply Procedure: The AC circuit shown in Figure 1 was constructed. Figure

The load, Z L , was changed as follows: 1. A resistor of R=25Ω 2. An inductor of L=120 mH 3. A capacitor of C=40µF 4. R and L in series 5. R and C in series 6. R, L, and C in series For each of the loads described above, the following measurements were made: 1. Wattmeter reading 2. Total current 3. Voltage drop across each element Data
