Homework Help: New at pspice guidance will be appreciate

  1. Nov 24, 2012 #1
    Hello im new at pspice and actually i know only how to place parts and wire them..
    this is the circut

    and this is what i did so far

    i need to know the voltage and the power on R1.
    i dont really know where should i start :/
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations

    3. The attempt at a solution

    Is your question regarding how to use pspice or are you just trying to answer a circuit analysis question (and perhaps thought using pspice would be simpler than thinking about the circuit for a moment :wink:)?

    If the former, your VCVS is wired backwards.

    im trying to learn how to use pspice actually :]
    i have a course with a final project at the end of the semester..

    do i need to define the voltage source as a variable or somthing?
    and what about R1 is there any definition i should do?

    Make the correction to the VCVS (the input and output terminal wiring should be swapped). Double-click (or something) the VCVS symbol to set the gain property to what you want. That's pretty much all I can suggest. I suppose you can insert voltage, current probes at appropriate places to make measurements, etc. Answer the question using standard analysis techniques so you can compare with the pspice results.
