Event Title

T2-E: CircuitLab: An (Almost) Free Online Analysis and Simulation Tool

Presenter Information

Thomas Ricard, Saint Leo University

Location

Dolphin

Start Date

Description

An inexpensive, web-based analysis tool to supplement an electric circuit analysis class is presented. The use of simulation software in a beginning analysis course is recommended in order to allow the student to verify analysis techniques and as an introduction to computer aided modeling and analysis techniques. CircuitLab is a web-based simulator that requires no download or installation, utilizes an intuitive build/simulate methodology, offers a generous array of capabilities in a free version, is inexpensive to upgrade, and has been implemented successfully in circuit analysis classes at Saint Leo University. The platform functions with a wide variety of web browsers and provides students with a working introduction to a necessary part of engineering design.
