How can I find average power across any component for a given schematic in ORCAD/Captur CIS?
No simple answer. Got to get the pencil out and do the calculations based on your assumptions.
Good reading here: http://www.eznec.com/Amateur/RMS_Power.pdf
I assume you have a basic physics/EE background as well.
I have the calculations done on paper but would have still liked to know how to use the software to compute that as well . . .but I did resolve the issue anyhow!
After runing the ckt. Follow the below steps to obtain the average power from PSPICE A/D window
Trace-Add Trace-Select Analog operators and Functions(from Function or Macros) and choose AVG() and then choose the W(x) from simulation output variable (where x is the component).
He says he's in OrCAD not PSPICE. :)
Thanks MAAC...will follow it up.
