Workshop on LTspice, PSIM and Multisim.
IEEE NSU Power & Energy Society Student Branch Chapter has successfully arranged an “Online Workshop on LTspice, PSIM and Multisim” on 17th of July, 2020 on an online platform known as “Zoom”. The workshop had a total of 39 participants, out of which, 25 were IEEE members and 13 were non-IEEE members. The Workshop was conducted by Ali Jobayer, an Electrical Engineering Intern in South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, teaching about LTspice. Then with Tawhid Islam Opu, Graduate Research Assistant in Independent University Bangladesh, giving classes on PSIM and Shadman Sakib Arnob, Lab Instructor at ECE Department, NSU instructing on how to use Multisim.
Electric Circuits is one of mandatory courses in electrical engineering. LTspice is a versatile, accurate circuit simulator The powerful, highly-visual simulation world of LTspice is a valuable tool for understanding circuit theory and electronic design, giving the student access to explore difficult aspects of a topic. By using this software, one can design a schematic diagram and develop a PCB of several layers. Multisim software combines SPICE simulation and circuit design into an environment optimized to simplify common design tasks, which helps to improve performance, minimize errors, and shorten time to prototype.
So, learning about the importance of software used in circuit design and simulation process, we arranged this workshop. The objective of the workshop is to help the students gain knowledge on how to design and develop analog circuits and to simulate the behavior of a circuit by creating an improved prototype.
The instructors covered all the basics of LTspice, PSIM and Multisim and assigned a few tasks for the participants to practice. They showed us how to implement a circuit into LTspice and run the simulation accordingly. The participants were very excited during the LTspice learning process. Then they were shown how to designe circuits for use in power electronics and motor drive simulations and how it can be used to simulate any electronic circuit. After that, they addressed us to the Multisim software and showed us some integrated circuits like Inverting/Noninverting Amplifier circuit, Voltage Follower circuit, Adder- Subtractor circuits, half wave rectifier/ full wave rectifier circuits, and differentiator and integrator circuits.
They expressed great interest and excitement towards the workshop. They were very delighted after completing their circuits and simulating them in all the simulation softwares.
The online workshop started at 10:00 AM and ended at 5.00 PM with the distribution of certificates to the participants. The instructors were honored with certificates as well.
