2. Create a simulation that will display the voltage across the capacitor shown below. In the
circuit switch A opens, switch B closes and vice versa. The switching happens every
400msec.

## From the Multisim Software:

Two pulse voltage sources are used to control the two voltage-controlled switches A and
B to alternately open switches A and B every 400 ms .

Using an Agilent Oscilloscope, the voltage across the capacitor is displayed as follows.

These images show the graphs of the behavior of the voltage across the 10-mF capacitor
every 400ms; left showing 500ms per division, and right showing 200ms per division.
The assumed behavior is to follow that the rising of the voltage is when switch A is open
and switch B is closed, while the falling of the voltage is when switch A is closed and
switch B is open. The falling of the voltage is because of the addition of a 10-
resistor. It is believed that the 9A-current source does not affect the circuit here.
When switch A is open and switch B is closed, the voltage after a 400ms duration is
shown to be V C =20.97 V, and is approaching to a steady state of 21 V. But, when
switch A is closed and switch B is open, the voltage after a 400ms duration is shown to be
V C =12.35 V, approaching to a steady state of 12.35 V.

Through Analysis:

Assuming the capacitor is fully charged, the capacitor acts like an open circuit.
Getting the Thevenins Equivalent Circuit across the capacitor, the Thevenins Equivalent
Voltages when:
a. A is open and B is closed:
V s=21V
b. B is open and A is closed:
V s=12.35294118

We use the equation of the complete response of the voltage across the capacitor.
When A is open and B is closed: v ( 400 ms ) =20.9714 V
When B is open and A is closed: v ( 400 ms ) =12.3535V

The graph of the behavior of the voltage across the capacitor is shown above.

3. Create a simulation that will determine the voltage v x (t) and i x (t) . Also, determine
the average power and reactive power supplied by the source. Also determine the power
factor seen by the source.
