Simulasi PSpice dengan menggunakan Version 9.1 (Students/Evaluation)

Libraries for  the Student/Evaluation  Version contain a restricted numbers of model/subckt. Extra models/subckts are often required, especially for simulation of power electronic circuits. We can add a few  models (not more than 20) into the Pspice's libarary for our application. The created/customised Model/subckt (*.lib) and symbol (*.olb) could be placed in  Userlib Folder, the folder that is provided for it.

I  have made a few models for power electronic applications. I have zipped the files into Modellib.zip. The Modellib. zip contains two files: modellib1.lib and modellib1.olb. Place both files into the Userlib  folder . The Userlib folder is usuallly located at: {C:/Program files/Orcad_Demo/Pspice/Userlib}
