Experiment 1: Measuring DC Voltages and Currents Shayan Rizvi Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, University of Connecticut, Storrs, Connecticut 06269 Various levels of voltage, current and the voltage to current relationship were measured through a circuit by the means of a multi meter and a power supply. The voltage through the circuit was measured at different levels from the power supply (0.5 V, 2V and 5V) and at each level the voltage was recorded through a set of voltage ranges (2V, 20V, 200V and 600V) set by the multi meter. Results of this test showed that the closer the range was to the voltage set by the power supply the more accurate the voltage reading became. Introduction. This experiment called for the use of a power supply along with a multi meter to measure voltage and current levels within a circuit. The power supply powers the circuit we have built and the multi meter is the instrument we used to measure the current and voltage levels within our circuit. Our main objective was the become familiar with how to measure voltage and current within a circuit we built and to understand the relationship
