Unformatted text preview: LABORATORY 1 INTRODUCTION TO THE CIRCUIT LABORATORY This is the first laboratory where you will deal with such matters as the course objectives, syllabus, grading policy, laboratory rules and procedures, safety issues, preparation of prelab and lab reports, the resistance color codes, the breadboard, and the Lab VIEW equipment. Objectives To enable students to gain skills in using basic electrical laboratory equipment such as meters, power supplies, and oscilloscopes, which skills they will need in subsequent electrical engineering laboratories and in industry. To make the students aware of the limits of the operation of components and equipment. To have the students gain skills in recording data and in reporting experimental results--to effectively communicate what they have done and observed. To give students self-confidence in electrical laboratories. To have the students become safety conscious in a laboratory environment. To verify some of the concepts presented in the co requisite course, either EEL 3111 or EEL 3003.

Lab reports are due for five of the 10 experiments, (labs 2, 5 7, 9, 10) and some of them have prelabs. The grade for work done in a lab session will include the prelab, if any). For the other experiments, a 1-2 page summary of data and results will be submitted and graded. The grades for the reports and lab sessions will be one out of A, B, C. Lab Reports and Prelab Reports: 50% (Due only for Experiments 2, 5, 7, 9, 10) Results only (Not full reports): 10% (Due only for Experiments 3, 4, 8) Project: 20% Quiz 1: 10% Quiz 2: 10% Prelab Reports In this manual, the write up for each experiment starts with a brief review of the relevant theory in the Introduction part. The instructor presents the underlying ideas in the class before the experiment is performed. The prelab report will consist of answers to questions posed in the introduction. The report will be due on the day the experiment will be performed. It will be collected at the start of the class. Students not presenting the report will be denied access to that experiment. Lab Reports These reports are written after the experiment is complete and they are due a week after....
