# Fourier Transform Lab Solution

This week’s lab is based on the application of Fourier analysis of an RL circuit in

Multisim.

Construct Figure 18.44 in Multisim with Vi(t) set to the pulse train as below. 1. Run simulation to perform Fourier and Transient Analysis to measure the

output voltage ‘Vc (t)’.

a. Record the voltage ‘Vc (t)’ and the current ‘I’ through the capacitor

in the table below.

b. Take the screen capture for the measurements for ‘Vc (t)’ and line

spectrum from Fourier analysis.

2. Add 5% tolerances to resistor and inductor and repeat step 3.

Measured ‘Vc (t)’ Measured current ‘I’ Without Tolerances With Tolerances

3. Answer the following questions:

a. Explain the effect of tolerance on output voltage ‘Vc (t)’.

b. Identify the frequencies and trace the frequency spectrum for the

voltage ‘Vc (t)’.

c. How does tolerance effect the frequencies in the spectrum and the

output voltage? Explain with the help of measurement results and

screenshots. Circuit Analysis For the circuit below, perform the following:

3. Capture a screenshot that shows V1 and V2 on an oscilloscope XSC1.

4. Submit calculations, MultSIM screenshot and MultiSIM circuit (.ms11) file For the circuit below, perform the following:
