Unformatted text preview: short circuit shown in figure 3.10 of the lab, the HP DMM was used to measure and record I_SC. Lastly, the total equivalent resistance was calculated using the equation R_EQ=(V_OC)/(I_SC). B. Data Tables w/ results: Parameter Measured Calculated % Difference I_L 0.00127 A 0.00132 A 3.79% V_L 2.635 V 2.6347 V 0.01% V_OC 5.483 V I_SC 0.0025 A R_EQ 2193.2 Ω C. Sample Calculations: Equivalent Resistance: R_EQ = V_OC/I_SC R_EQ = 5.483 V/0.0025 A R_EQ = 2193.2 Ω Thevenin resistance: R_TH= (1 k Ω ||5.1 k Ω )+(1 k Ω ||3.3 k Ω )+1k Ω R_TH= 836 Ω + 767 Ω + 1000 Ω = 2603 Ω = 2.6k Ω D. Discussion: E. Conclusion...
