Direct current circuit analysis program - ferroburak - 11-09-2009

I wonder if there is a DC circuit analysis program (like Circuit4) program for Hp calculators. Thanks in advance.

Hi, Ferroburak;

I do not know the Circuit4 program (any source of information?), but based on the fact that you are an aerospace engineering student, I would like to ask what sort of resource you would need in a DC analysis program. I mean, will you enter a circuit description based on nodes/mash, the kind of active(source)/passive(load) component and their location and solve for current/voltage unknowns? There are many programs that might fill your needs here, if you are searching for HP49/HP50 application programs. If you want to go ahead with Electrical Engineering for these calculators, try here, too.

Hope this helps.

One circuit analysis tool that's fun (and free) is the analog circuit simulator at Falstadt.com. It has trouble with extremely complex circuits, but I imagine a program running on a pocket calculator would, too. I can't directly compare it to circuit4 because I haven't used that (though it does look cool). It looks like they'd be similar in that you'd build the circuits graphically (rather than something like pSpice).

Thanks for the tip and the link! (N.T.) - Vieira, Luiz C. (Brazil) - 11-10-2009
