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....
