    Thevenin's theorem BJT derivation

    Here, I want to use Thevenin with those 2 resistors in the base. How can I combine those two resistors with thevenin or do you have any other better idea to combine them? (circled with red in the picture) (PS: I don't ask the solution of the question. I'm only asking individually the...

    Inverse Phasor Transform Calculation

    While I was converting this with the inverse phasor transform, I wanna ask a question P{ -4 cos(200t – 45°)} Should I say -4∠-45 or 4∠-45 ? I mean, do I have to preserve the negativity of the magnitude which is "4"? As far as I have known that the magnitude is not a vectorial thing and then...

    Sinusoidal Graph Drawing Problem

    The was an equation given like that: v(t) = 5cos(1256t-pi/4) Then I wanted to draw this graph below: Do I need to scroll the chart left or right? (In the cosine graph, I shifted it to the left side) Also I want to ask that, I have been always encountered with sine function graph drawings...

    Determining the period of RMS sinusoidal waveform

    Here is the i (graph a) and i^2 graph (graph b) for the RMS calculation: My question is while calculating RMS value, should I decide to determine the period by looking a) or b) graph? Because, while I'm looking for the a. graph (shown above), I guessed the period is 2pi However, if I would...

    Why is cosine so important in Electrical Engineering?

    Actually I have been thinking this question since 1 week inside my head. As far as I know that those functions are coming from "Euler's Equation" but I still concerned that what such kind of real life things are making cos and sin functions are so important for us? I just know that those...

    Is there a test network to analyze the hydrothermal dispatch of electrical energy?

    Hello, I am developing my degree work on the coordination of hydraulic and thermal units in an energy network and I was wondering if there is any test network with which I can evaluate or compare the results obtained with my work. Thank you very much in advance

    Need your advices on how can I estimate the voltage at the terminals the thyristor switch

    I am working on a static transfer switch which aim is to allow supplying a load with 2 different sources in order to have a redundancy when feeding the load. The head to tail assembly allow the current to flow in 2 directions (for each alternative of the input current) The working condition is...

    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...

    Touching live wires on high voltage line.

    Hey everyone :) I'm working as an automation engineer and I've always asked myself why people say, that for example birds, can sit on power-lines, because they aren't touching neutral/different potential and no current is flowing. I can't really get this explanation into my head, because...

    Do we select a large or small BJT to amplify high frequency response?

    Part of me thinks we need a smaller BJT, to reduce base emitter junction area. but I am confused

    LTspice Error: Undefined symbol in: "<<voltage>>" on mac.

    Hey y'all! Hope you're having a great day! I've spent an unnecessary amount of time trying to resolve this issue. I'm pretty new to LTspice and I wanna simply change the x-axis to show voltage instead of time, but it just doesn't seem to work (I'm running the program on mac). As you can see in...

    Transfer 24 VDC to 1000 ft...

    Hello, I have to transfer 24 VDC to 21 devices which is 1000 ft apart. Is it possible to transfer 24 VDC to such a long distance? This 24 VDC is coming from SMPS. Does the current/power rating matter in this case? And how can I calculate total voltage drop at the end (If there is any)?. All...
