144 147 Preface
This book is written for electrical engineering students. It is a collection of examples that
show how to solve many common electrical engineering problems using the TI-89. It is not a
textbook; if you do not know how to solve the problem, look it up in your textbook first. If you
do know how to solve the problem, this book will show you how to use the TI-89 to get the
answer with more insight and less tedium. We show you how to use the TI-89 in class, in lab,
on homework, and so forth.
Many of you may now use Mapleê, Mathematicaê, MATLABê, Mathcadê, or other symbolic or
numeric software. You will be pleasantly surprised to find that the TI-89 can solve many of the
same problems as the big boys, but it will boot up in only a second or two, it rarely crashes, it
fits your pocket book (even if you have a small one), and can fit in your pocket (if you have a
You should find this book easy to use. Although we show how to use many of the features of
the TI-89, we assume you already know your way around it. First read Do This First, then
jump to the section discussing the problem you want to solve. To Instructors:
Read the To Students section.
When writing this book, we resisted the temptation to show how the TI-89 can be used to solve
problems in ways that differ from standard electrical engineering texts. Although it has the
power and ability to approach many problems in new ways, that was not our focus.
Our focus is to help students learn the basic material better by showing them how to use the
TI-89 to do the tedious things so they don’t get lost in the details. Our approach was best
summed up by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz when, in the 17th century, he said,
“It is unworthy of excellent men to lose hours like slaves in the labor of calculation.”

DAVID VOLTMER (AKA Smilin’ Dave) loves teaching electrical engineering at Rose-Hulman
Institute of Technology. He claims to be good in the areas of electromagnetics, microwaves,
antennas, communications and design. A few of his many projects designed to assist student
learning include PC-based instruments, SPICE48, and Visual Electromagnetics (VEM). The
writing of this book was accompanied by the sounds of clawhammer banjo music and with
regular training breaks for long-distance cycling.
MARK A. YODER, Associate Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering, received his
B.S. degree in 1980 and Ph.D. in 1984, both in Electrical Engineering and both at Purdue
University. While there, he did research in speech and in image processing, in addition to
studying the dynamics of a disk passing through a non-viscous medium (that is, playing a lot of
In 1988 he discovered that teaching was where the fun is, so he headed for Rose-Hulman in
Terre Haute, Indiana. Here he pioneered the use of symbolic algebra systems in electrical
engineering education and helped develop a class on computer vision. He developed an expert
system for diagnosing a fiber-optic communications system for the International Centers for
Communication Technology, and he hopes to work on computer assisted Bible translation. He
has co-authored a book on digital signal processing for sophomores.
Dr. Yoder’s biography is not complete without mention of his family. His wife Sarah has her
Ph.D. in Electrical Engineering from Purdue. They have nine children aged 15, 15, 12, 10, 8, 6,
4, 2, and -0.5 – two boys, six girls, and one on the way. vi 00bfront.doc . Karen Pressnell Revised: 01/29/99 2:31 PM Printed: 01/29/99 2:32 PM Page vi of 4 Features Used

And Filter Design This chapter shows how the TI-89 implements phasors to
perform sinusoidal steady-state analysis. The focus is on
how to enter and display complex numbers. This chapter
also shows a typical steady-state application—how to use
the Numeric Solver to find the required order of lowpass
Butterworth and Chebyshev filters in making a standard
“handbook” filter design. Topic 13: Phasor Analysis
Given the circuit shown in Figure 1, find v, the voltage across the current source. Figure 1. A circuit in steady-state The first step is to convert the actual circuit to its phasor equivalent. The circuit shown in Figure 2
includes these conversions. Figure 2. The phasor equivalent of the Figure 1 circuit Only one nodal equation is needed to solve for v − 8∠0°+ v

5. Phasors are expressed as a magnitude at an angle, M∠θ.
There are a couple of ways to obtain this form.
The first way is to use the functions abs( ) (top of screen

angle( ) command (bottom of screen 3).
This shows that the phasor form of the voltage is

in radian mode the angle would have
been given in radians. The second approach is to put the TI-89 in Polar mode.
Press 3 and select Complex Format 3:Polar (screen 4). (4)
6. Using cSolve( ) (and with ¥ ‘ for a second approximate
solution) gives the same results in the polar mode as
abs( ) and angle( ) in the rectangular mode, as shown in
the bottom two lines of screen 5.

3. ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING APPLICATIONS WITH THE TI-89 With cSolve( ), the solution in screen 9 shows that the
voltage varies with frequency. (9) The complete answer is v= −4000000.00 (iw + 75000.00)
w − 125000.00iw − 10000000000.00
2 The answer is a bit of a mess. To check it with the
previous solution, enter eqn | w=100000 (screen 10).
It’s the same answer as Topic 13, screen 2. (10)
4. To view the variation of the voltage magnitude versus
frequency, graph v versus w. Since the original problem
used w=100,000, graph from w=0 to w=200,000. Press
¥$ and set xmin to 0, xmax to 200000, ymin to 0,
and ymax to 50. Press ¥ # and set y1 to graph the
magnitude of v (screen 11). 5. Press ¥ % to see the magnitude graph (screen 12). 6. This graph takes a long time to complete because the
“with” substitutions are made over and over again for
each pixel. One way to speed it up is to do the “withs”
once before graphing and save the result in another
variable name which is then graphed. (11) (12) To do this, press " and enter the expression:

labels to the graphs. To do this, press 2 ‰ 7:Text and position the cursor where the text should start. The
characters will appear below and to the right of the
crosshairs. Be careful; once a letter is placed it can’t be
erased except by 2 ‰ 2:Eraser. (24) 18. To return to a single screen, press 3 „ and set Split
Screen to 1:FULL. Topic 15: Filter Design Overview
A class of realizable frequency responses for lowpass filters has the form
1 + ε Ψ 2 (f)
2 where Ψ(f) is a polynomial in f. If
Ψ(f ) = f p n the filter is a Butterworth filter. An alternative is to make Ψ(f) = Cn(f/fp) where Cn is a Chebyshev
polynomial, the filter is a Chebyshev filter. The next topic deals with a Butterworth filter, the
following topic with a Chebyshev filter. © 1999 TEXAS INSTRUMENTS INCORPORATED 04steady.doc . Karen Pressnell Revised: 01/25/99 9:25 AM Printed: 01/28/99 8:40 AM Page 38 of 14 CHAPTER 4: STEADY-STATE CIRCUIT ANALYSIS AND FILTER DESIGN 39 The design of lowpass filters requires specification of passband and stopband responses often
given in dB. |H(f)|2 in dB is calculated as 1

The performance specifications of a filter are often given in graphical form as shown in Figure 3.
The design of a Butterworth filter with these performance specifications is described here. 1k 2k f (Hz) Passband

3. 4. Note that the Numeric Solver listed each of the
variables for values to be entered. Find the value of eps
by entering the data for the passband edge with a -3 dB
response at 1000 Hz. n is unknown but at the passband
edge all values give the same result, so for now enter 1
for n as shown in screen 27. (27) Place the cursor on the eps line and press „ to solve
for eps. After a second or two, the screen shows eps is
about 1 (screen 28). (28)
5. (5 Now, find the order of the filter by setting the stopband
edge response (exp) to -40 dB and f to 2000 (screen 29). (29)
6. Solve for n by placing the cursor on n and pressing „.
After a couple of seconds the solution of n=6.6 is
shown, as in screen 30. (30)
7. Since n must be an integer, set n to the next larger
integer value of 7 and solve for exp to find the stopband
gain for this value of n (screen 31).
With a 7th-order Butterworth filter the stopband gain is
- 42 dB, a little better than the minimum needed.

frequency response. To do this, press ¥ # and enter
butter with f replaced by x (screen 32). (32)
9. Since the stopband edge of the filter is 2 kHz, plot x
from 0 to 3000. The stopband value is -40 dB, so plot y
from -45 to 0. Enter these values in the Window Editor
(¥ $) as shown in screen 33.
(33) 10. Press 3 to be sure the Graph mode is set to
FUNCTION. Then press ¥ % and wait a few seconds to see screen 34. (34) The response in the passband looks very flat, which is
correct for Butterworth, but are the passband and
stopband edges in the right places? These can be
checked graphically by pressing 2 ˆ 2:DrawFunc to
draw horizontal lines at -3 and -40 dB and
2 ˆ 3:DrawInv to draw vertical lines at 1000 and
2000 Hz (screen 35). (35) 11. Press ¥ % to plot the results (screen 36). The curve passes through the -3 dB point at 1000 Hz and
passes below the -40 dB point at 2000 Hz. The filter
meets the required specifications.

This filter exceeds the design specifications by more
than 10 dB with a lower order than the Butterworth.

filters to compare them (screen 45). Note that n=7 is
added to y1 so that the Butterworth filter uses the order
computed for it instead of using the value of n=5 used for the Chebyshev filter.
11. Press ¥ % to see the graphs (screen 46). (See Topic 16 for a review of the instructions for a
graphical comparison of the filters’ performances.)
As expected, the Chebyshev filter has ripples in the
passband, but it drops more rapidly in the transition
band than the Butterworth. (46) 12. Compare the filters’ performances with the lines which represent the passband and stopband design
specifications (screen 47). Press 2 ˆ 2:DrawFunc to
draw horizontal lines at -3 and -40 dB. Press 2 ˆ
3:DrawInv to draw vertical lines at 1000 and 2000 Hz.
Both filters show the required -3 dB response at 1000
Hz; both filters exceed the specifications since they are
below -40 dB at 2000 Hz. (47) Topic 18: Logarithmic Frequency Plots
Often frequency responses are plotted on a log frequency scale. Although the TI-89 doesn’t directly
support log plots, they are easy to do.
1. Return to the Y= Editor and alter the “with” operation
to include the logarithmic relation of frequency with x
as shown in screen 48.
y1: butter Í f Á 10 Z x ½ and n Á 7
y2: hdb Í f Á 10 Z x (48) The values for x are linearly spaced, but the values of
10x are logarithmically spaced.
2. Press ¥ $ to adjust the range on x. Graph the
functions for f=500 and f=3000. To do this, enter log(500)
for xmin and log(3000) for xmax as shown in screen 49.
(49) 3. Press ¥ % to display screen 50. The logarithmic
plots take on a different appearance than the linear
plots of screen 46. (50) © 1999 TEXAS INSTRUMENTS INCORPORATED 04steady.doc . Karen Pressnell Revised: 01/25/99 9:25 AM Printed: 01/28/99 8:40 AM Page 44 of 14 CHAPTER 4: STEADY-STATE CIRCUIT ANALYSIS AND FILTER DESIGN 4. 45 The passband and stopband lines are added by using
log() of the f values in DrawInv (screen 51). Press
