Take Home Assignment PSPICE ANALYSIS OF ECE207L CIRCUITS
Using the experience and data you gathered from Labs 1-7 and PSPICE analyze the following circuits. Remember this assignment is worth 17 points and I am expecting you to put some
of 2nd Order
1. Given an underdamped circuit with transient response:
! = 2 !"! cos 500
a. About how long will it take Vo(t) to decay?
It will take about 5

3) Used the function genera
B1. Working with function generator
1. Selected the sine function.
2. Specified the following parameters:
Frequency: 60 Hz
Voltage Amplitude: 10 V
DC offset: 0 V
3. Output the signal to the oscilloscope.
B2. Working with oscilloscope
Multi-meter is a device that measures more than one parameter. We will be using two types
of multi-meters in this lab. The two DMMs (Digital Multi-meters) are placed on top of your
lab bench. Your DMMs contain both an Ammeter and a Voltmeter.
Superposition Theorem states that the output of linear resistive circuits will always be a sum of
terms, each term proportional to one the input sources.
To determine the contribution of each individual source, all of the other sourc
Alternating Current (AC)
The most common form of alternating current is the sine wave. The voltage of the waveform can
be described by the RMS value, zero-to-peak value, or the peak-to-peak value. The length of the
cycle (in seconds) is called the period.
2nd Order Circuits
1. Sketch the transient responses:
2. Given that the second order overdamped circuit has the foll
(Assuming No Leakage)
Capacitance (symbol C) is a measure of a capacitor's ability to store charge. A large capacitance means that
more charge can be stored.
Unit of capacitance is Farad (Coulomb/Volt)
is the Dielectr
