PSPICE is driving me crazy!

    Ok... so I just installed pspice and just for testing I drew a 24Vac connected to a bridge rectifier (4x N4001 diodes) and to a load of 1k.

    Now the output that it gives me doesn't seem right! What am I doing wrong?

    Here is a snap shot of the windows...

    What frequency did you use for your 24vac source?

    Since you're only allowing 10mS for the transient analysis, set the frequency to 100Hz.

    How do I set the frequency?

    I don't have PSpice installed; I use LTSpice.

    But can't you edit a part (maybe right-click on it?) and change its' parameters?

    Apparently it cannot be done using the VAC part, so I added a sinusoidal voltage that did have a frequency parameter. (very strange!)

    Now I got it working, thanks :)
