Hi everyone,how is it going?
I wanted to ask you if you know any pc software that would allow me to build electrical cuircuits and have all the values of voltages and currents in order to check if my analysis results are correct or not.
Thanks
For info,I don't need a professional software(I'm only a freshman in EE),I just want to check my results in exercises.

You are describing a SPICE package. There are a number of them available, and there are some low cost (maybe free?) student packages available.

PSPICE is a common package used in schools. I use MicroCAP SPICE at work. You can google SPICE software to get info on other packages.

MicroCAP http://www.spectrum-soft.com/index.shtm

PSPICE http://www.cadence.com/orcad/index.html [Broken] (you may have to click on PSPICE on the left)


(Edit -- I moved this to the EE forum for more views and feedback on other SPICE packages)

As for free SPICE tools, look at the gEDA project:

http://www.geda.seul.org/

It includes a few simulators: ngspice, gnucap, etc.

*smacks forehead*

How could I have forgotten LTSpice? It's better than virtually any other basic simulator out there. Thanks f95toli.

I would talk to your professors and see what software your school has licenses for (assuming they do). I personally like MultiSim for general circuits. Although, I would not pay the money for the personal license.
