    Circuit analysis

    Hello, please, would some good person help me with analysis of this circuit (my guess it's a FM radio). My task is to revive it, however I don't quite know how. What I'd do: 1. Connect the circuit to 9 V voltage source 2. Divide the circuit to 2 parts - AC and DC 3. Search for voltage...

    Circuit Analysis

    For Question 2.1, is the power 500W or 100W ? Do we need to apply the passive sign convention rule for power in whatever cases? Also, i’ve Learnt that we can check answers by balancing power in a circuit. But the power in this kind of circuits don’t balance out, but it is still valid. So when...

    Role of the two diodes in this circuit ?

    So this is the circuit that I have . I managed to define what his function is. The last question that I had to answer is what role does the 2 diodes Dz and Dh have in our circuit ? I'm not quite sure whether they do have a specific function in this circuit or should I just give a general...

    Concept of Bootstrapping in Electronics

    Dear Team, I was trying to study about bootstrapping in electronic circuits. When I checked in Internet Wiki says it is a method to improve the input impedance of an amplifier. In the power electronics context, it has another...

    arc lighter circuit working

    Hi, few days ago I got a broken arc lighter used to ignite gas stove. I thought of taking it a apart and look inside the circuit but as per to my knowledge it is confusing me a lot, I hope you guys will be able to remove my confusion so here is the detail. Data It uses 1.5V AA cell to work. This...

    Why this Simple Watt Meter for 220 Volt Circuit works?

    Hello! I'm just a begginer student. I found this circuit of a wattmeter that works only with resistors. Can someone explain to me how the 33k resistor give a voltage of 1 mV to 1 Watt? I did not understand why these resistor values has been chosen and why the it measures only in the 33k...

    Finding missing current

    Hello everyone, I was wondering if I could get some help on this question below. I know it's says use kcl but I'm just not seeing how I can find these missing currents. Any help is greatly appreciated! Also this is my first circuit analysis class so I'm sorry if the answer is blatantly obvious!

    Circuit Breaker Location

    Hi, in IEEE 3 bus, why are circuit breakers connected at the 'load' rather than connected at the 'generator and load'?

    Derivation of RLC parameters from a complex RLC circuit

    Hey guys, I am having trouble with a problem. I would like to derive a formula for some parameters (resonance frequency, Quality factor, Wcl and Wch) Normally, you will use a general second-order function for a second-order RLC circuit (which is easy to derive). However, my circuit is much more...

    Nodal Analysis Question Incorrect

    Much like my last thread, I have another homework problem in which I must solve for a current value using nodal analysis. I've attempted the problem using some techniques to visualize the circuit from the last forum post and felt confident in my answer, however it is again incorrect and I'm not...

    What is Pull up/down?

    What does pull up mean? In circuit examples, for example for a ESP8266 chip, pull up is connecting to Vcc through a 10kΩ resistor. Why 10k? How is this value derived? I have seen two separate cases of pull down. One connects to a 10kΩ to ground while another connects directly to ground. Hope...

    Finding an unknown resistance

    Hello. This may be a simple problem, but I'm struggling to obtain the resistance R found in the figure below. First what's throwing my are the two voltage sources. I'm used to seeing these present in op-amps, but the way they intersect is throwing me. I'm not sure how to determine their...
