Course objective: This course is designed to provide students with professional skills for lab experiences.

Students will design, assemble and test linear electrical networks and systems. Students will learn how
to troubleshoot in those procedures. Students will also use computers to control electrical equipment
and acquire data usingLabview. Students will simulate circuits withPSpice (MicroSim). Lab classes are
designed to accompany the co-requisite EE/TE3301 Electrical Network Analysis class.

Course web site:http://www.utdallas.edu/~tbhatt/
Check the website each week before preparing for the lab. It will be updated and will include hints, tips, etc. to
help you prepare for the lab.
Lab Procedures: The Lab procedures for experiments are available at the course website described above.
Acrobat reader (version 4.0 or later) is required for the lab manual files. For details of lab procedures and
safety rules, refer to lab manuals.
PSpice: Download the Student copy of PSpice 9.1 or higher:
Some features of version 9.1 may be inconsistent with the guidelines in the lab manual.
Lab preparation:
1. Download the lab manual and bring it with you to lab.
2. Read the labs carefully and complete the prelab procedures before coming to class and submit the
prelab reports to TAs (keep a photocopy to complete experiments).
3. Be prepared for the experimental procedures by understanding the relevant theory.
4. Refer to more specific requirements for each Lab at the end of this page.
Lab procedure:

1. Arrive on time. Turn in your lab reports when you walk in the laboratory.
2. Ask for the component kit box (labeled with a number on the cover), then start the experiment. Use the same
box for every experiment.
3. TA will assist students to complete the experiment. Ask for help when in trouble with circuits and equipments.

4. Show your data sheet to the TA and get their initials on it when experiment is completed and before you
leave the lab.
5. Clean the workstation area and return all wires to their storage location. Turn off the power on any equipment
used during the experiment.
Lab reports:

1. Read the descriptions of the informal lab report and the formal lab report in the preface of the lab manual.
Youmust follow the designated formats.
2. Lab reports must be completed independently. You can share only the collected data sets with your lab
partner. Copying any part of the report from others is strictly prohibited and is against the school\u2019s
scholastic integrity policy.
3. Lab reports are always due the next session after the lab is completed.
4. No late lab reports are allowed.
5. Students should generate lab reports in a professional manner. Lab reports should be typed (generated
by a word processor).
6. Reports must be turned in when you walk into the laboratory.
7. Two copies for prelab reports are required (original copy for TAs and photocopy for students).
8. In your prelab report, you have to make a components list in the circuits for the experiment. In the lab
manual, prelab report portion is given under the preparation section. Youmust complete the prelab
work before the lab starts.

Grading: Grades are based on the lab reports.
Lab reports: 80%
Prelab reports: 20%.
Safety rules: Read the safety rules that are presented in the preface of the lab manual and understand
them for your safety.
Note: Students will work on experiments in two-person teams. Please have your teammate selected before

Lab #1. If you cannot find a teammate, ask your TA for a partner assignment. The TA will judge your ability
to handle the equipment and to troubleshoot problems during the experiments, which will be reflected in
your final grade.

Scholastic Integrity: Scholastic dishonesty at The University of Texas at Dallas includes, but is not limited to,
plagiarism and/or collusion. Scholastic dishonesty will not be tolerated. For details refer to the Scholastic
dishonesty policy of University of Texas at Dallas.
Lab schedule: Lab schedule is subject to change according to the class schedule of EE/TE3301.

Sinusoidal Steady State Analysis and Power Calculations
Experiment 1:

Download and print out the documents for Lab #1. Read this first before you start. A description of the lab equipment is in theAppendix. The appendix also gives handy tips for using the equipment. Always bring it with you to lab for reference. Consult with the TA if there is inconsistency in the appendix.

Experiment 2:

Download and print out the documents for Lab #2. You need to finish your Pre-lab report before you come to the lab. Please submit your finished Pre-lab (keep an extra copy for your reference) report along with your Lab report for Lab #1 to the TA. Please review Ohm\u2019s law and Kirchhoff\u2019s law in the textbook when you do the theoretical analysis. The circuits you are going to build and test are various resistive circuits in DC. The purpose of this experiment is to verify the theoretical analysis.

Experiment 3:
Lab #3 will be moderately more difficult than the previous 2 experiments. You need to start your Pre-lab

report early since this pre-lab involves lots of calculations. You need to get prepared well before you come
to the lab otherwise you may have a difficult time finishing the lab! This lab is designed to provide the
experiments for DC resistive circuit analysis techniques involving the node-voltage method, the mesh-current
method, source transformation, Th\u00e9venin equivalent and Norton equivalent. As mentioned earlier, this is a
good opportunity to review these theoretical materials again to maximize your lab experience. PS: I noticed
that some of you had some trouble with Circuit 2-6 in Lab 2. An easy way to solve it is like this: since R1 and
R2 are equipment, the voltage will drop 5V through each of them; Vab= -2, this means the voltage drops 7V
through R4, so 7/R4=(10-7)/R3. Alsohere is how to use the Kethley.

Experiment 4:

The purpose of Lab #4 is to get familiar with very important software: PSpice, which is extensively used in
circuit design and simulation. On Page 3 of Lab 4, in the section of procedures, just go to Page 5 to find those
circuits to simulate.Here is the pre-lab 4. One potential problem is that the downloaded software from the link
above may have a compatibility issue with Windows Vista, if that\u2019s the case, you need to find a Windows XP
machine to do your pre-lab 4.

Experiment 5:

The purpose of Lab #5 is to get familiar with Operational Amplifier. Here is the updated pre-lab 5 (there were
typos in the original file, thank you George for pointing it out!). Refer to Section (5.3) to (5.6) in the textbook
to solve the circuits. In equation (5-3) of the lab manual, it should read (V3-V4) instead of (V1-V2). Also refer
to Appendix G about how to use the OpAmp.
PS: I noticed that some of you guys occasionally did not submit your pre-Lab reports, pre-Lab reports however
account for 20% of the grades.

Experiment 6:

Hope you all had a great Spring Break! This week, we are going to work on first order RL and RC circuits.
Please review Chapter 7 of the textbook if necessary. We will observe the natural and step response of RL and
RC circuits in this lab. You also will get some experience with another important software LabView, which
provides the concept of so called virtual instrument, and facilitates the use of computer controlled equipment.
You need to read and follow the procedure section carefully to smoothly finish the lab. On page 32, the last line,
you don\u2019t need a floppy disk, a flash drive is fine. On page 33, in item 3 under the subsection 1, it should read
\u2018Edge\u2019 instead of \u2018Slope/Coupling\u2019. Compared to earlier experiments, the circuits in this lab are easier to build,
