This circuit has no power sources: unable to determine the simulation timestep automatically.

Re: This circuit has no power sources: unable to determine the simulation timestep automatically.

Hi,

 

I really need you help. I've bought a book with a Multisim 10.1 Student Edition.

When I want to simulate something, I receive the following error message:

 

"This circuit has no power sources: unable to determine the simulation timestep automatically.
Please add a power source or set the simulation timestep under "Interactive Simulation Settings" to proceed."

 

I am using Windows XP.

 

Some time before I downloaded Evaluation Version from NI website and had the same problem.

 

Thank you for your help.

 

Best,

Anis

Hey guys, Lacy and Devon_H,
I was facing the same problem each time I tried running my circuit. And every time I get this error : "This circuit has no power sources: unable to determine the simulation timestep automatically."
So I need to know if you fixed up thiss issue or if I need to reinstall the program.
note I've tried my circuit on my freind's Pc and it seems to functoin normally
I'll attach the circuit and the error msg

Hi,

 

I do not see the attachments. Can you please try to attach the Multisim file again.

Re: This circuit has no power sources: unable to determine the simulation timestep automatically.

Hi, this is my circuit that it has to be connected to a DC power supply of 15 V from a and 0 and I'm trying to run it but it shows the same message about no power source. Using NI Elvis II, the power supply is supposed to come from the template. Help me please guys!

Re: This circuit has no power sources: unable to determine the simulation timestep automatically.

Hi,

 

Which version of Multisim are you using? When I call an NI ELVIS II template I get different connectors and your circuit simulates fine.

 

Regards!
