PSPICE (Orcad Family Release 9.2 Lite Edition) Installation Instructions 1. Momentarily disable your anti-virus software. 2.

After loading the Orcad into CD-ROM in its drive, a window may pop up asking if the user has administrative privileges to install the software on the user’s computer. Provide the administrative account details and click OK. 3. A warning message pops up asking the user to turn off any user virus detection Programs. Click on OK. 4. Click Yes on the “Administrative Privileges Information” window if appropriate. 5. Click next on window displaying Welcome message. 6. From the “Select Products” window, select options Capture and PSpice. Capture is for schematic input and PSpice for modeling. Click Next. 7. The “Installation Directory” window asks the user to select the Destination Drive and folder. The user may choose the default settings or can select different settings by clicking on the Browse button. Click Next to continue. 8. Next, a window, “Select Program Folder”, pops up. Here the User may type a new folder name or select one from the existing Folders list. Click Next. 9. The window, “Start Copying Files”, displays all the Current Settings. Click Next to begin copying files. 10. Starts copying files onto your hard drive. 11. A “Setup Complete” window pops up. Click Finish Button to complete the setup. 12. Restart the machine after installing the software. 13. You have installed the software and are now ready to put to use. Example: To draw a simple dc circuit and simulate its electrical behavior. 1. Launch PSPICE from the Windows START button, going through Programs to Orcade Family Release 9.2 Lite Edition, and clicking on Capture Lite Edition. This places you in the Schematics window, where you will now draw your circuit.

10. 3. go to Place (on Menu bar) and select the Source library (i. Drop the dc voltage source on the schematic by left clicking on the mouse. Place the mouse crosshair on a node and left click. Click OK. etc.. Select “0” part as the ground and place it on the schematic as shown in Figure 1. assignment number. Click on Source under Libraries. 9.2. 4. Now. Select Analog or Mixed A/D option. Or. 6. Enter the required text inside the “Place Text” window. file name etc. select “Create a blank project” option. Move the pointer over to the right tool palette and click on the Place Text icon.e. Place the text box by first clicking the left mouse button and then right click to end mode. You can also change the value of any component in this same way. Click Add Library button. and then double click on the value and a window will open with the value displayed. Type the Location to be stored. This drops a wire connection onto the schematic. Click on the VDC part and then click OK. This places them under Libraries in the Place Part Window. Go to Place → Part. 5. Go to Edit Properties. ANALOG. Click OK. and place it as shown in Figure 1. Select Analog under Libraries. Simply edit the value and click on Okay. go back to Place on the Menu bar and click on Part. The “Place Part” window pops up. Now. Go to File → New → Project → Give a name to the Project. just left click on the wire (or part) and press the Delete key. From the “Create PSpice Project” window. then drag the wire to the next connection and left click again. Select Wire from Place (on Menu bar) and connect the two resistors as well as the voltage source. Select part R and place the resistor (R1) on the schematic (as shown in Figure 1). which identifies your name. 2 . select the source and right click on the mouse. Select all libraries (ABM. 7. R2. This tells the editor that you wish to place a part that is located in the Source Library.) and click on Open. Note: If you make a mistake and wish to remove a wire connection (or any other part). A list of all parts in the Source Library now appears in the Parts List window. ANALOG_P. No PSPICE assignment is complete until you place a text box on the schematic. from the PSPICE folder). Then right click on the mouse and click “END MODE”. 8. date. Click OK. Move the mouse pointer over the working area and place the text box just below the circuit. This gives the first page of the schematic. All circuits must have ground! To ground the circuit. Repeat the above step for one more resistor. Change the value to 10 V in the Display Properties window. an easier method is this: left click on the value (0 V) to select it. to change the value of the dc voltage source (from 0 V to 10 V).

PSPICE now performs a dc analysis of the circuit. Close the real time window and go back to the Schematic. For Analysis. A Simulation Settings window pops up.22mW V1 10V 0 Figure 2: The Bias Point (dc Values) shown in the schematic.333mA 22. You can select (left click) any of the labels. we want to have PSPICE analyze it for us. Go back to PSPICE on the Menu-bar and click on “Run”.333mA R2 0V 2k 3. branch currents and power and then drag them to new locations if you like. Now that you have the schematic drawn and saved. PSPICE displays all the node voltages. 14. R1 1k V1 0Vdc R2 0 1k Figure 1: PSPICE schematic for a simple dc voltage divider. Go to Analysis type on the Analysis page.11mW 10. Sometimes PSPICE draws them on top of your components or wires. Click OK. 11. 15. Save the schematic before proceeding. node voltages. A real time window pops up displaying the simulation profile. 3 . let’s find the voltage and current through every component. 13. Enter a name for the simulation (same name as the schematic name is okay) and click on the “Create” button.667V 3. Select Bias Point from the Analysis Type dropdown list. branch currents and power on selected parts. 12.
