THEORY:
Electrical devices are controlled by switches which are closed to connect supply to the
device, or opened in order to disconnect the supply to the device. The switching operation
will change the current and voltage in the device. The purely resistive devices will allow
instantaneous change in current and voltage.
An inductive device will not allow sudden change in current and capacitance device
will not allow sudden change in voltage. Hence when switching operation is performed in
inductive and capacitive devices, the current & voltage in device will take a certain time to
change from pre switching value to steady state value after switching. This phenomenon is
known as transient.
The study of switching condition in the circuit is called transient analysis.The state of
the circuit from instant of switching to attainment of steady state is called transient state. The
48
49
time duration from the instant of switching till the steady state is called transient period. The
current & voltage of circuit elements during transient period is called transient response.
PROCEDURE:
1. Charge on capacitor is o initially.
2. If there is a charge in it, short circuit the terminal then the charge will be dissipated.
3. Close the switch at t =0
4. Simultaneously switch on the stop watch.
5. For every 2 seconds note down the voltage across capacitor until
Voltmeter reaches 5 V.After reaching 15V allow 10 sec. for it.

SIMULATION OF THREE PHASES BALANCED AND UNBALANCED STAR, DELTA
NETWORKS CIRCUITS
AIM
To build, simulate, and analyze threephase circuits using OrCAD Capture Pspice Schematics under
balanced and unbalanced conditions, and to understand the characteristic of 3phase power transmission
circuits
SOFTWARE REQUIRED
 Orcad Pspice
Problem:
1 .In Fig, lets assume that the threephase circuits are balanced and each has a magnitude (peak value) of
170 V at 60Hz in the positive sequence with Va =170 V0
0
. The line impedance is (1 + j10) , and the
load is (20 +j20). Find: a) the line currents (Ia, Ib, Ic) and the neutral current (In) in peak values b) the power
loss in each line, including the neutral c) the power factor for each phase of the load
2. Repeat problem for given figure, but lets now assume that the threephase circuits are unbalanced and
operating in the positive sequence with Va =170 V0
0
. Use the same line impedance, but the load is now
(20 + j20) for phase A, (50 + j10) for phase B, and (5 + j50) for phase c.
Procedure
1. ThreePhase Balanced Circuits
a. Build the threephase circuits of Figure 1 onto the Schematic window
b. To get parts, click button on the right hand side menu. Alternatively, you could also get parts by going to
the top menu, click on Place, and then select Part.
c. If no library is shown on the Place Part window, then you will have to manually add the library by
clicking the Add Library button. Look for a library called Source and click on it. The SOURCE
library should now be listed on the Place Part window.
d. The threephase voltages are made up of three ac sinusoidal singlephase voltage sources Vsin under
the SOURCE library to build the threephase voltages. Once the Vsin part is on the schematic, double
click on it to assign its parameter values:
79
Simulation Setting window
80
AC=0 DC=0 FREQ=60 PHASE=0 VAMPL=170 VOFF=0
Note that the other two Vsin voltages should have the same parameter values as above except their phases
(for V2 and V3) should be 120
0
and +120
0
, respectively (assuming the phase sequence is positive).
e. Passive components such as Resistor, Inductor, or Capacitor can be found under the ANALOG library.
For the given impedances in the problem 1, determine the resistor and inductor values. These are the
values that you will need to assign for the Resistors and Inductors on the schematic.
f. Connect a 0/ source ground to the neutral points (node n and N in Figure 1). The ground can be obtained
by clicking on the right side bar menu, and then select 0 /SOURCE in the Place Ground window as
shown in Figure.
g. After the schematic is done, go to Pspice on the top menu, and select New Simulation Profile. A
window appears asking you to name the simulation profile. Type in any name, but preferably something that
relates to your schematic, such as threephase. Then, hit OK and the following window appears.
j. Enter the following values for the simulation settings and then hit OK: Run to time=1050ms, Start saving
data after=1000ms, Maximum step size=0.1ms Check the box for the Skip the initial transient bias point
calculation (SKIPBP)
k. Run Pspice Simulation by selecting Run under Pspice on the menu. Once the simulation is
completed, a Probe window will appear as shown in Figure. However, if there is an error or more on your
schematic then the simulation will stop. You should then go back to the schematic page and troubleshoot
the schematic.
l. To show various waveforms (voltage, current, power) from the schematic, go back to the schematic
window and then place the markers or probes to any place of your interest on the schematic. The probes are
located just below the top menu and there are four probes available: voltage (V) , voltage differential (V+V)
, current (I) and power (W). Note that you should run your simulation again every time you add or remove
probes.
m. To observe the input voltage waveforms, place the Voltage markers on top of each Vsin symbol on your
schematic. This will automatically generate the waveforms on the Probe window. Switch to the Probe
window and you should see the waveforms of balanced threephase voltages as shown in Figure
n. Remove voltage probes for Phase B and Phase C from the schematic, and add a current probe into Phase
A.
81
Three Phase
voltage waveform
Voltage and current probes or markers on Phase A
82
o. Switch back to the Probe Window, you should now see the Phase A voltage and the line current A as
shown in Figure.
p. Rescale the current waveform by a factor of 10 to see the current waveform more clearly. This is done by
double clicking the name of the current waveform (I(R1) in Figure
r. To determine the times when these zero crossings occur, you may use the cursors by clicking on the menu.
There are two cursors which are movable by the use of left click and right click of your mouse. At this point,
the two cursors should be on one of the waveforms. To find out which waveform the cursors are currently
on, look at the names of the waveforms (bottom left of the plot). If the legend of the waveform is surrounded
by a square then the cursors will be assigned to the waveform. Also, if you look at the bottom right of the
plot, you should also see a small window entitled Probe Cursor which shows the location of the cursors (x
and y coordinates) on the plot
s. The Probe Cursor window consists of 3 rows and 2 columns. The first column shows the time in ms and
the second column show the voltage in Volts and/or current in Amps. The third row shows the difference
between the two xpoints (row 3 column 1) and the two y points (row 3 column 2). See Figure again. t. Use
the right click of your mouse to move one cursor to find the zero crossing of the voltage as shown in Figure.
Use the left hand click to measure the zero crossing of the current. Note that you wont be able to get exactly
0 for the y points, so do the best you can to get a number close to 0. Ask your instructor to verify your result
and then print it out.
u. From the zero crossing values that you just obtained, measure the power factor as seen by the source, i.e.,
power factor associated with the total impedance of he load and the line. Is it a lagging or leading power
factor?
v. Zoom to fit the plot by clicking on the upper right corner of the plot. Delete both waveforms from the
plot, and plot the neutral current by placing the current probe on the neutral line on the schematic. Observe
the value of the neutral current.
w. Delete the neutral current waveform from the plot, and, instead, add the load voltage from phase A to the
plot. Switch to the Probe Window and you should see the load voltage waveform on the plot.
83
Voltage and current after rescaling the current waveform
Figure. Zooming in to the zero crossing points
84
2. ThreePhase Unbalanced Circuits
a. Build a threephase unbalanced circuit using the same threephase schematic of part 1. Change the load
impedance to the values listed in Problem 2.
b. Run the simulation and obtain the load voltage waveforms into a single plot. Copy and paste into Word.
Note that because the circuit is unbalanced, the voltage at the load side of the neutral line is not the same as
the voltage at its source side, i.e. at ground level. Hence, to obtain the load voltage waveform, you have to
use the Differential Voltage probe or marker from the menu. With this probe, you will have to place two
markers (since it will be measuring a differential voltage): V+marker and V marker. Place the V+marker
with the first click of your mouse
to the top terminal of load resistor R1a and place the V marker on the bottom terminal of load inductor L1a.
c. Delete the load voltage waveforms and obtain the input voltage waveforms (i.e., the three phase voltages
at the source side) into a single plot. Copy and paste into Word.
d. Remove the input voltage waveforms and now plot the current waveforms (all line currents and neutral
current) into a single plot. Rescale any current waveform if necessary to make all waveforms visible on the
plot. Copy and paste into Word.
e. Determine the power factor for each phase of the load by measuring the phase difference between the
voltage across and the current through it. Note that the phase difference between the voltage across and the
current through each of the three load phases should be equal (theoretically) to the angle of the
corresponding load impedance.
Result
Thus the three phase circuits (balanced or unbalanced, star or delta) are designed and analyzed
using Orcad Pspice software.

In Z parameters of a twoport, the input & output voltages V1 & V2 can be expressed in terms of input & output
currents I1 & I2. Out of four variables (i.e V1, V2, I1, I2) V1& V2 are dependent variables whereas I1 & I2 are
independent variables. Thus,
V1 =Z11I1+Z12 I2 (1)
V2 =Z21I1 +Z22 I2 (2)
Here Z11 & Z22 are the input & output driving point impedances while Z12 & Z21 are the

In Y parameters of a twoport, the input & output currents I1 & I2 can be expressed in terms of input & output

independent variables.
I1 =Y11V1 +Y12V2 (3)
I2 =Y21V1 +Y22V2 (4)
Here Y11 & Y22 are the input & output driving point admittances while Y12 & Y21are the

ABCD parameters are widely used in analysis of power transmission engineering where they are termed as Circuit
Parameters. ABCD parameters are also known as Transmission Parameters. In these parameters, the voltage &
current at the sending end terminals can be expressed in terms of voltage & current at the receiving end.
Thus,
V1 =AV 2 +B (I2) (5)
I1 =CV2 +D (I2) (6)
Here A is called reverse voltage ratio, B is called transfer impedance C is called
transfer admittance & D is called reverse current ratio.
In h parameters of a two port network, voltage of the input port and the current of the
output port are expressed in terms of the current of the input port and the voltage of the
output port. Due to this reason, these parameters are called as hybrid parameters, i.e. out
of four variables (i.e. V1, V2, I1, I2) V1, I2 are dependent variables.
Thus,
V1=h11I1 +h12V2  (1)
I2 =h21I1 +h22V22  (2)
H11 and H22 are input impedance and output admittance.
H21 and H12 are forward current gain and reverse voltage gain

FACTOR
Objective
To introduce the basic structure of a cathoderay Oscilloscope.
To get familiar with the use of different control switches of the device.
To visualize an ac signal, measure the amplitude and the frequency
Theory
Cathoderay Oscilloscope
The device consists mainly of a vacuumtube which contains a cathode, anode, grid, X&Yplates, and a
fluorescent screen (see Figure 1). When the cathode is heated (by Theory Cathoderay Oscilloscope applying a small
potential difference across its terminals), it emits electrons. Having a potential difference between the cathode and the
anode (electrodes), accelerate the emitted electrons towards the anode, forming an electron beam, which passes to fall
on the screen. When the fast electron beamstrikes the fluorescent screen, a bright visible spot is produced. The grid,
which is situated between the electrodes, controls the amount of electrons passing through it thereby controlling the
intensity of the electron beam. The X&Yplates, are responsible for deflecting the electron beamhorizontally and
vertically.
A sweep generator is connected to the Xplates, which moves the bright spot horizontally across the screen
and repeats that at a certain frequency as the source of the signal. The voltage to be studied is applied to the Yplates.
The combined sweep and Y voltages produce a graph showing the variation of voltage with time, as shown in Fig. 2.
Alternating current (ac)
An ac signal can be of different forms: sinusoidal, square, or triangular. The sinusoidal is the most popular
type, which is the natural output of the rotary electricity generators. An ac voltage source can be represented by
) sin( ) ( + = wt t
m
(1)
where
m
is the maximum output voltage value, =2 ( is the frequency), and is the phase shift.

2. Adjust the Volt/Div and the Time/Div knobs so that you get a suitable size signal
(from12 wavelengths filling most of the screen vertically).
3. Calculate the peak to peak voltage value.
4. Calculate Vrms value.
5. Measure Vrms using the multimeter.
6. Measure the period T, then calculate the frequency.
