Hello.
I'm trying to get back to the basics of BJT transistors. This is no homework. Just me trying to get back to the basics.
I want to write the net equations and node equations but there are a few things that are forgotten and I'm struggling a bit to get them back to my mind.
I'm using Qucs to simulate the circuit. I'm not sure it's files are compatible with LTSpice which I know is probably more common around here than Qucs but I'll upload the files here.
I want to calculate all resistor's voltage drops and currents of interest so that I can compare them with Qucs results.
This is the circuit.
I think I can write the following equations but I'm not sure they are correct
\( \displaystyle{I_{R_{1}} = I_{R_{2}} + I_{b} } \)
\( \displaystyle{12V  V_{R_{1}}  V_{R_{2}} = 0} \)
\( \displaystyle{0.7V = V_{R_{2}}  V_{R_{3}}} \)
\( \displaystyle{12V = V_{R_{c}} + V_{R_{L}} + V_{LED}} \)
\( \displaystyle{12V = V_{R_{c}} + V_{CE} + V_{R_{E}}} \)
Now, are these equations all good? Can I discard anyone or I'm going to need them all?
