2. Objective: To compare theoretical predictions of calculated quantities to EWB simulation results as well as with NI circuit board measurements. Illustrate that actual circuit board measurements (NI) differ from nominal values (calculated values). The differences in rated values of resistors are exploited. Percent error is calculated to display this exploitation. 3. Procedure: Using the DMM; we measured the actual value of the 5V power source. We then measured the actual values of resistors 1 through 4 as well as R L . Using only components with exact measured values, the circuit was built. Post build of the circuit; we used a DMM to measure I L , V L = V xy . R L was removed then V OC and I SC were measured with the DMM. The circuit board was left constructed and the calculations from part IB and IIA were recalculated using the measured values of all components. 4. Results A, B.

Measured: V OC = 1.38V I SC = 36.8mA D. Calculated I L = 32.4mA The results from each section I, II, and III (hand calculated, EWB, and measured) were equivalent for the most part (% error < 5%). The variation in measured values of the resistors and power source with respect to the nominal values caused the small error. 5. Conclusion: When you use the power supply on the Ni board, makes sure to measure its value. Do not assume the voltage is exactly 5 V. There are a variety of equivalent methods to solve circuits (NI board measurements, EWB, Hand calculation). Calculated and measured values have evident but small differences. Analysis of a complex circuit can be simplified by breaking it down into its Thevenin and Norton equivalents....

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
