Use software, with which you are comfortable (MATLAB, Excel, etc.), to plot 3 curves: 1. Normalized current I/ IMAX 2. Normalized voltage V/VMAX 3. Normalized power P/PMAX as functions of the load resistance RL . Use a logarithmic axis for the load resistance and clearly label which curve shows what on your plot (hand‐written labels are OK). Your plot should show at least 5 points per decade (any interval, over which varies by a factor of 10, such as from 3 to 30 Ω). Attach your plot with your name, discussion section #, and the date of work (all in ink). If you had to write computer code (in MATLAB, etc.) include it along with your plot, with your name and date of work printed as part of the code. If you use EXCEL, attach a one‐page printout of the spreadsheet, with your name and date of work printed on top. Part 3 (10 points) Use your calculations (Part 1 of this problem) and computer‐generated plot (Part 2 of this problem) to explain why the power P absorbed by the load (or transferred to the load) decreases at low load resistances, and why it decreases at high load resistances. Write a brief discussion on whether your plot agrees with your algebraic results. From your plot, determine the ranges of load resistances, within which the power transferred to the load remains: above 90% of the max power above 70% of the max power above 50% of the max power. © 2011 Alexander Ganago Last printed 1/27/11 5:13 PM Page 2 of 2 File: 2011 W 314 HW 04 p1.doc In ohms In % of RS EECS 314 Student’s name ___________________________ Discussion section # _______ (Last, First, write legibly, use ink) (use ink) Instructor is not responsible for grading and entering scores for HW papers lacking clear information in the required fields above Winter 2011 Homework set 4 Problem 2 (30 points) Volt‐Amp characteristics of sources represented as their Thevenin equivalents Part 1 (15 points) Assume that the unknown source (the box on the diagram below) can be represented with its Thevenin equivalent circuit (the voltage source VT in series with the source resistance RT).

The strategy is straightforward: (1) Replace the linear circuit with its Thevenin equivalent; (2) Obtain its Volt‐Amp characteristic and plot it as a straight line, which is also known as the load line; (3) On the same graph, plot the non‐linear Volt‐Amp characteristic of the electronic device; (4) Determine the crossing point of the two Volt‐Amp characteristics; (5) The coordinates of the crossing point are the operating voltage and current. This graph shows lab data for a semiconductor diode obtained with the same equipment and the same VI that you used in DC Lab, along with the Volt‐Amp characteristic of the Thevenin equivalent circuit with VT = VS = 4 V and RT = RS = 4 kΩ. The operating point is highlighted with a circle; the arrows show the operating voltage of about 1.62 V and the operating current of about 0.6 mA; their product equals about 0.972 mW and is the power absorbed by the semiconductor diode. © 2011 Alexander Ganago Last printed 1/27/11 8:09 PM Page 1 of 2 File: 2011 W 314 HW 04 p3.doc EECS 314 Student’s name ___________________________ Discussion section # _______ (Last, First, write legibly, use ink) (use ink) Instructor is not responsible for grading and entering scores for HW papers lacking clear information in the required fields above Winter 2011 Homework set 4 Problem 3 (continued) Use file 2007‐07‐24 IV diode a4_.xls available on CTools web site (HW 04 folder) and determine the operating voltage in volts, the operating current in mA, as well as the power in mW absorbed by the semiconductor diode connected to the following circuit: Note that for this circuit the Thevenin equivalent resistance equals: RT = RS + RX Assume the following parameters: VS = 5 V; RS = 200 Ω, RP = 1 kΩ.

For example, due to piezoelectric effect, voltage causes mechanical displacement, which can be used for making positioning tools with extreme accuracy. In old televisions and oscilloscopes with Cathode Ray Tubes, or CRTs, the applied voltage displaces the beam of electrons (or cathode rays, according to their old name). Behind each television screen (old, not a flat one) sits a CRT, where beams of electrons are produced by electron guns (one for each color) and deflected by the electric fields, which are generated by high‐voltage power supplies connected to the pairs of vertical and horizontal plates so that each beam sweeps the entire surface of the screen. To each pair of plates, a high‐voltage Saw‐Tooth (ramp) signal is applied, which makes the beam sweep the whole the length (or height) of the screen at a constant speed, and ensures nearly instantaneous return of the beam to the original position (during the return motion the beam is blanked, its brightness made “blacker than black”). A simplified sequence of scans is shown on the sketch (the return motion is shown with dashed lines). Note that the beam moves slowly from top to bottom, and moves fast from left to right, because the frequency of the saw‐tooth waveform for vertical deflection is low, while the frequency of the saw‐tooth waveform for horizontal deflection is high. © 2011 Alexander Ganago Last printed 1/27/11 8:20 PM Page 1 of 2 File: 2011 W 314 HW 04 p4.doc EECS 314 Student’s name ___________________________ Discussion section # _______ (Last, First, write legibly, use ink) (use ink) Instructor is not responsible for grading and entering scores for HW papers lacking clear information in the required fields above Winter 2011 Homework set 4 Problem 4 (continued) The US standard for television involves 30 frames (called fields) per second; each frame consists of 525 lines (out of which only 483 are visible; others – at the edges of the screen – are blanked). In other words, the frequency in Hz for the vertical sweep equals 30 (the number of frames); the frequency in Hz for the horizontal sweep equals the product of 30 and 525 For the ramp signals used in this TV standard, calculate and write your answers below: Frequency, in Hz Period, in µsec Rise Time (from 10% level to 90% level), in µsec Fall Time (from 10% level to 90% level), in µsec Vertical sweep Horizontal sweep Show your work below and/or on additional pages. © 2011 Alexander Ganago Last printed 1/31/11 10:34 AM Page 2 of 2 File: 2011 W 314 HW 04 p4.doc EECS 314 Student’s name ___________________________ Discussion section # _______ (Last, First, write legibly, use ink) (use ink) Instructor is not responsible for grading and entering scores for HW papers lacking clear information in the required fields above Winter 2011 Homework set 4 Problem 5 (50 points) Build a Saw‐Tooth Waveform as a Sum of Its Harmonics Part 1 (10 points) Consider a saw‐tooth waveform at 30 Hz and 5 kVppk = 5,000 Vppk, which can be used for the vertical deflection of electron beams in a TV set.

Use additional pages as needed. Part 2 (20 points) Make a computer‐generated plot of the sinusoidal components that sum up to this waveform. Your plot should show 3 curves: (1) The fundamental only (2) The sum of the fundamental and harmonics up to the 3rd (3) The sum of the fundamental and harmonics up to the 5th. Use equation 6 of the file Saw‐tooth harmonics. On the plot show 2 to 5 periods of the waveforms. Use distinct line styles to show different curves and clearly explain what is what. Make sure that the peak‐to‐peak amplitude of the waveforms on your plot is reasonably close to 5,000 Vppk, and that the period is close to 33 msec. © 2011 Alexander Ganago Last printed 1/27/11 8:24 PM Page 1 of 2 File: 2011 W 314 HW 04 p5.doc EECS 314 Student’s name ___________________________ Discussion section # _______ (Last, First, write legibly, use ink) (use ink) Instructor is not responsible for grading and entering scores for HW papers lacking clear information in the required fields above Winter 2011 Homework set 4 Problem 5 Part 3 (20 points) Appreciate the importance of the phase shifts in the summation of harmonic components. The same sinusoidal components that comprise the saw‐tooth wave above can also sum up to an alternative waveform if you neglect the phase shifts of even‐numbered harmonics: Make a computer‐generated plot of the alternative waveform according to equation 7 of the file Saw‐tooth harmonics. Your plot should show 3 curves: (1) The fundamental only (2) The sum of the fundamental and harmonics up to the 3rd (3) The sum of the fundamental and harmonics up to the 5th.
