This introduction provides step-by-step instructions for using PSpice and Orcad Capture to analyze ac and dc circuits, circuits in the time domain to determine the complete response, and circuits in the frequency domain to determine the frequency response.

About the Author:

Richard C. Dorf, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of California, Davis, teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in electrical engineering in the fields of circuits and control systems. He earned a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, an M.S. from the University of Colorado, and a B.S. from Clarkson University. Highly concerned with the discipline of electrical engineering and its wide value to social and economic needs, he has written and lectured internationally on the contributions and advances in electrical engineering.

Professor Dorf has extensive experience with education and industry and is professionally active in the fields of robotics, automation, electric circuits, and communications. He has served as a visiting professor at the University of Edinburgh, Scotland, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, and the University of California at Berkeley.

A Fellow of the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers and the American Society for Engineering Education, Dr. Dorf is widely known to the profession for his Modern Control Systems, tenth edition (Prentice Hall, 2004) and The International Encyclopedia of Robotics (Wiley, 1988). Dorf is also the coauthor of Circuits, Devices and Systems (with Ralph Smith), fifth edition (Wiley, 1992). Dr. Dorf edited the widely used Electrical Engineering Handbook, third edition (CRC Press and IEEE Press), published in 2005. His latest work is Technology Ventures (McGraw-Hill, 2005).

James A. Svoboda is an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Clarkson University, where he teaches courses on topics such as circuits, electronics, and computer programming. He earned a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, an M.S. from the University of Colorado, and a B.S. from General Motors Institute.

Sophomore Circuits is one of Professor Svoboda's favorite courses. He has taught this course to 4500 undergraduates at Clarkson University over the past 26 years. In 1986, he received Clarkson University's Distinguished Teaching Award.

Professor Svoboda has written several research papers describing the advantages of using nullors to model electric circuits for computer analysis. He is interests in the way technology affects engineering education and has developed several software packages for use in Sophomore Circuits. Professor Svoboda's email address is svoboda@clarkson.edu and the url of his web page is http://www.clarkson.edu/svoboda/.
