First place down all your components.
- "ctrl + w" opens up the component window. form there you can place down your components.
- AC_POWER and Ground can be found under Sources>Power_Sources.
- Diodes can be found under Diodes, for this example were using a Virtual diode.
- Resistors can be found under Basic>Resistors. for this example were using a 1K ohm resistor.
- Use "ctrl+shift+W" to wire the components together.
- Adjust the values on the Voltage source by double clicking it and navigating to the value tab, from here we can edit the values of the source. we have used 10V RMS and 5Hz for this example.
When done the circuit should look something like this.
Now we can start taking our measurements.
- Navigate to your Oscilloscope on the left hand side of the screen.
2. Click and drag your Oscilloscope
to a wanted possession on work space
3. Connect the two ports from the A Terminal
to the circuit, positive on top and negative on bottom of the
4. Run the simulation by pressing the green Triangle
, in the simulate toolbar
, or by pressing the F5
your keyboard. Make sure you run the simulation in interactive mode. this can be altered under Simulation>Analysis and Simulation
5. To access your Oscilloscope
readings toy can double click
on the oscilloscope
icon on your work space. This
will bring up your standard waveform chart.
6. You can increase the scale of the X-axis (time)
under the Timebase
section of the oscilloscope,
example 50 ms/DIV
should be sufficient.This will give you a wave similar to the one displayed below.
7. Now Pause
) or Stop
your simulation, under the simulation toolbar. this will allow us to take accurate
measurements using the oscilloscope cursors, these can be moved by click and drag, or by using the arrows
. The Values of the cursors are displayed underneath the graph.
