I. Network analysis technique

In the practical of this year, we will validate experimentally some of the network analysis

techniques discussed in EEEN222 courses. Students are encouraged to simulate the different

exercises they prepared for the labs. Simulation permits to confirm the theoretical results

before coming to the lab session. I recommend you an interesting and free software to

simulate electrical circuits available here. Many tutorials about PSpice are available on Orcad

website and on internet.

For this experiment, you need resistors, ammeter, voltmeter or multimeter and a DC

source. Students have to choose the correct resistances using the colour code.

The Thevenin theorem permits the simplification of networks composed of linear

components to a voltage source and its internal resistance (or impedance).
