    Hi,

    I am trying to build a half wave rectifier however when i try to proceed with the simulation i am getting several errors and not quite sure how to resolve them. The error i am getting is in regard my diode (WARNING(ORNET-1119): No PSpiceTemplate for D1, ignoring ) Any help would be deeply appreciated
    here is the simulation log

    There seems to be a couple different errors...

    1. Looks like you have your transformer connected directly to a voltage source. That's find in theory, but not in real life, and pSpice takes that into account and sees it as a short... you have to have a resistor in series there... even 0.000000001 ohms will work.
    2. You have a resistor that is only connected on one side to ground - delete that resistor.

    first off thanks however i am still getting the error after adding the resistor for the vsin, regarding the seconf resistor i need it there due to our lab project. Here is an updated log

    It appears that you still have the same 2 problems... The 10 ohm resistor needs to be between the power supply and the transformer not shorted...

    Regardless if you're lab has a floating resistor or not pspice won't like it
