EXPERIMENT NO. 1

AIM: Verification of Kirchhoff’s laws.

SIGNIFICANCE: These laws are applicable in the analysis of almost all the electrical and electronic circuits.

APPRATUS: 1) Connecting wires,


2) 4mm patch cords,
3) Kirchhoff’s laws kit,
4) Digital Multimeter – 3 nos.
5) Regulated DC power supplies

THEORY:
THE KIRCHHOFF’S VOLTAGE LAW
It states that “the algebric Sum of the voltages aroud closed loop is zero”.
IR DROP:- Whenever we move in the direction of current there is a drop in voltage,
since the current always flows from point at higher potential to the point at lower
potential. Hence Voltage drop in the current direction is taken as negative and vice-
versa.
SIGN CONVENTIONS:
If we move from negative terminal of source to positive terminal, there is a voltage
rise. Therefore it is to be considered positive. If we move from +ve terminal to –ve
terminal of voltage source, there is voltage drop. Therefore it is to be considered as –ve

B) THE KIRCHHOFF’S CURRENT LAW (KCL)


It states that “At any instant the algebraic sum of all the currents entering or leaving a
node is zero”.
CIRCUIT DIAGRAM:

SPACE FOR CIRCUIT DIAGRAM (IF THERE IS CHANGE IN DIAGRAM GIVEN ABOVE):
PROCEDURE:
A) For Kirchhoff’s Voltage law:
1) Connect the power supply cord of the kit to the socket.
2) Connect variable dc source in the circuit 1 of Kirchhoff’s voltage law.
3) Switch on the supply and measure voltage across all the three resistances i.e R1, R2, and R3 with
the help of multimeter of figure 1. Also find out the polarity across each resistor i.e whether
there is a voltage rise or voltage drop and mark the positive and negative sign sign across each
resistor. This you can done with the help of multimeter, if the meter displays reading without any
sign that means the point at which red wire has been connected is positive and point at which
black wire has been connected is negative. And if the meter displays reading with negative sign
before it that means, the point at which red wire has been connected is at negative and the point
at which black wire has been connected is at positive. So, now mark the positive and negative
signs across each resistors in the circuit diagram.
4) Note down the readings of voltages across all the resistors in the observation table.
5) Note down 3 more readings in the same manner as described above by varying the supply
voltage level.
6) Verify kirchhoff’s voltage law for one or two readings, by writing down KVL equation and verify it
in the space provided for calculations.

B) For Kirchhoff’s Current law:


1) Connect the power supply cord of the kit to the socket.
2) Connect variable dc source in the circuit 2 of Kirchhoff’s current law.
3) Switch on the supply and measure current through all the three resistances i.e R1, R2, and R3 or
through all the three branches with the help of multimeter(for this set multimeter on 10A range).
Also find out the direction of current through each resistors. This you can done with the help of
multimeter, if the meter displays reading without any sign that means that the current is flowing
from red to black wire or in the direction of red to black. And if the meter displays reading with
negative sign before it that means, the current is flowing from black to red wire or in the
direction of black to red. Mark the direction of current in the figure 2 by arrow in that branch in
the direction of current
4) Note down the readings of current through all the resistors in the observation table.
5) Note down 3 more readings in the same manner as described above by varying the supply
voltage level.
6) Verify kirchhoff’s current law for one or two readings, by writing down KCL equation and verify it
in the space provided for calculations.

EXPERIMENT NO. 2

AIM: Verification of Superposition Theorem.

SIGNIFICANCE: Network theorems are used to speed up the analysis of circuits. This theorem is very
useful in the analysis of electric circuits containing more than one source.

APPRATUS: 1) 2mm Patch cords,


2) Digital Multimeter,
3) Superposition Theorem Kit.

THEORY:

Statement: Superposition theorem states that "In any linear bilateral network containing two or more sources, the
response in any element is equal to the algebraic sum of the responses caused by individual sources acting alone, while
the other sources are non-operative i.e., while considering the effect of individual sources, other ideal voltage sources
and ideal current sources in the network are replaced by short circuit and open circuit across their terminals”.

EXPLANATION:
1. Select only one source and replace all other sources by there internal resistances. (If the source is the ideal current
source replace it by open ckt. if the source is the ideal voltage source replaces it by short ckt.)
2. Find the current and its direction through the desired branch.
3. Add all the branch currents to obtain the actual branch current

negative sign (draw another diagram for this condition).
8) Now connect 12 V source in the circuit replace 5 V source with a short. Again measure the value
and note down direction of current in the branch c-d. this current will be Icd’’. If the direction of
current changes mark the direction same as before but note down reading with negative sign
(draw another diagram for this condition).
9) Take the algebraic summation of Icd’ and Icd’’ and compare it with Icd, both the values should
come same. Do the calculation and verify superposition theorem.

resistance to a load resistance when the load resistance is equal to the thevenin’s resistance as seen
from load terminals.”

RTH = RL is the condition required for maximum power transfer.

source impedance to load impedance when the load impedance is equal to the complex
conjugate of the thevenin’s impedance as seen from load terminals.

THEORY:
A RLC series network is said to be in resonance when the applied voltage and current are
in phase and the frequency at which this phenomena occurs is known as resonance frequency fr. Resonance
occurs when inductive reactance is equal to capacitive reactance i.e. XL = XC.

Resonant frequency fr =
∏√

At resonance the impedance is pure resistance .At resonance frequency the current in
the circuit is maximum which is given by Imax.

BAND WIDTH: A band of frequencies at which the current is 1 times its maximum value. At that
√2
instant the power delivered to the circuit is half of the power at resonance. Hence they are called as
half power frequencies f1 and f2. The frequency f1 is termed as lower cut off frequency and f2 is termed as
upper cut off frequency. And hence the difference between the two half power frequencies is known as
Band-width.
B.W = f2 - f1
QUALITY FACTOR: The ratio between resonance frequency fr to bandwidth B.W. It is also given as the ratio of
capacitor or inductor voltage at resonance to supply voltage.

EXPERIMENT NO. 10

AIM: Measurement of power and power factor in a single phase ac circuit.

SIGNIFICANCE: i) Active power can be measured for any type of load.


ii) Power factor and Reactive power can be calculated if we
also measure voltage across and current flowing through
the load.

APPRATUS: 1) Connecting wires,


2) Ammeter (0-5A) – 1nos.
3) Voltmeter (0-300V) – 1nos.
4) Wattmeter (10A, 300V) – 1 nos.
5) Load bank.
6) Decade resistance, capacitance, inductance box – 1 each.
7) Autotransformer.

THEORY:
The active power or average power or real power in any single phase load can be
measured with the help of dynamometer type wattmeter. The wattmeter contains two coils current
coil and pressure or voltage coil. Current coil (CC) is connected in series with the load and pressure
coil (PC) is connected in parallel with the load. Wattmeter has four terminals M, L, C, V. The terminal
M is connected to mains supply, terminal L is connected on the load side, terminal V is connected to
the other end of the load and terminals M and C are short circuited. If we also connect the ammeter
and voltmeter along with the wattmeter, we can also measure the voltage across the load and
current through it and the product of voltage and current will give apparent power (VI). After
knowing active and apparent power we can easily calculate power factor of the load.

2) DC shunt motor,
3) Three point starter,
4) Variable DC power supply (30A)

THEORY:
DC shunt motor is widely used motor in industrial applications. It is a constant speed motor
idealy but there some drop in speed from no-load to full-load practically. The dc shunt motor is started with
the help of three point starter. Starter consists of resistances in series with armature which limits the starting
current of motor and the resistance is gradually cut-out as the motor gains speed. Once the motor is attaining
full speed all resistances of starter has been cut out and motor run at rated speed. Since the back emf of
motor is zero at the time of staring as motor is at rest so the heavy current can flow through armature and to
limit this starter is used.
The direction of dc shunt motor can be reversed or changed either by interchanging
its field terminals or armature terminals but not both, because changing both the field and armature
terminals will not change the direction of motor and the motor will continue to run in same direction.

PROCEDURE:

1) Connect the circuit as shown in figure 1. Positive of supply is connected to field point F of motor
through starter and negative connected to point FF of field.
2) Now switch on the dc supply source and move the starter arm gradually. The motor will pick up the
speed slowly and finally runs at rated speed.
3) Note the direction of motor.
4) Now switch off the supply and interchange the field winding terminals as shown in figure 2, negative
of supply connected to F of field and positive now connected to FF of field through starter.
5) Again move the starter arm gradually. The motor will pick up the speed slowly and finally runs at
rated speed.
6) And again note down the direction of motor.
7) Disconnect the circuit after finishing experiment.
8) Repeat the same procedure for armature terminals.

EXPERIMENT NO. 13

AIM: Determination of Efficiency and Regulation of single phase Transformer by direct loading.

SIGNIFICANCE: From this test we can find out at which load transformer has maximum efficiency and by
how much amount secondary side voltage changes on loading a transformer

APPRATUS: 1) Connecting wires,


2) Ammeter (0-5A) – 1nos.
3) Ammeter (0-2A) – 1nos.

3) Voltmeter (0-300V) – 2nos.


4) Load bank.
5) Autotransformer.
6) Wattmeter (10A, 300V) – 2nos.

THEORY: In a practical transformer there are two types of losses:


(1) Cu loss
(2) Core/Iron loss.
Therefore output of a transformer is always less than input of the transformer.
Here transformer is loaded with a variable resistive load. Input to the transformer can be found out by using
a wattmeter and output can also be measured by a wattmeter or with the help of voltmeter and ammeter.
Input power to transformer = Reading of wattmeter W1
Output power from transformer = Reading of wattmeter W2

% efficiency η = (Output Power / Input Power) × 100%


= (W2 / W1) × 100%

Voltage regulation(V.R) is the change in the magnitude of secondary voltage from no load to desired load.
This change is expressed as a percentage of the full load voltage.
