simulate / show condensator charging

Go to solution



i'm trying to simulate / show the typical condensator charging. ( Multisim Component Evaluator 14 )

Power Source - Resistor - Condensator


As soon as i'm starting the simulation the voltage of Power Source and condensator is the same.

Doesn't matter which value i'm choosing for the resistor.


Which simulation setting i should change ?


Best regards

Most likely, the simulation uses a fully charged capacitor (as in, your configuration has been sitting in its current state there as is) as its default value.

Try adding a switch that you can flip (default position is that there is no connection) so that the process of charging can be initiated at will.

Alternatively, use a signal source and create a square voltage that only starts being high (5V for example) after one second or so.

Thank you very much for your answer.

The signal source hint was the solution for my problem
