PART 4:Yenka Activity
Week 4Yenka: Power Transmission activity
Purpose
In this activity you will compare the voltage loss in two circuits: one without a transformer (Circuit 1)
and one with a transformer (Circuit 2). In both circuits the signal generator represents a power station,
the 1kresistor represents the resistance of the transmission lines and the 10 resistor represents the
load at the consumer.
Circuit 1
Open, in the following order: Yenka, New Model. From the Parts Library (on the left of screen)
click on Electronics, Analog. Click on Signal Generators and drag the generator on to the
simulation window. Click on the (green) signal generator and in the Propertiespane at left change the
frequency to 50Hz and the peak voltage to 45V.In the Parts Libraryclick on Passive Components,
and drag two Resistors on to the simulation window.Click on each resistor in turn and in the
Properties pane change one to 1K and the other to 10. To rotate resistor click on the ‘circle’
above the resistor and rotate. To wire components together, click and draw between them with your
mouse. From the Power Supplies folder drag the Ground (Earth) to the position shown in Circuit 1
below.
From the Parts Library, click Presentation (scroll down) and drag the Graph icon onto the
simulation window.Click and drag on the Target toolnext to the red dash on the graph window so that
a line connects the target tool (a crosshair will appear next to the cursor)to a point between the signal
generator and the 1K resistor. The connecting line goes solid when the connection has been made,
and when the mouse button is released it turns a red-dashed colour. In the Traces folder in the
Properties pane find Trace 2 in the drop-down menu. Check the Show trace box. Go back to your
graph and drag on the new (blue) Target tool so that a line connects the tool (crosshair) to the circuit
between the 1k and the 10 resistor. Click on Property…to the left of the y-axis on the graph and
click on Voltage from the drop down menu for both traces. The Properties pane should appear on left
of screen. Click on th Y-axis tab and adjust the Range from -50V (Min) to +50V (Max)with major
gridlines every 5V. Set the X-axis range from 0 to 200 ms (milliseconds), with major gridlines every
50ms. Remember to use the Answer Questions 1 and 2 before drawing Circuit 2.
Circuit 2
Click on Signal Generators and drag another generator on to the simulation window. Click on the
(green) signal generator and in the Properties pane at left change the frequency to 50Hz and the peak
voltage to 45V.In the PartsLibrary click on Passive Components and drag two transformers on to
the simulation window. Click on each transformer in turn and in the Properties pane change one (left)
ratio to 0.4: 1 and the other (right) to 20:1. Drag two resistors,with the same values as you did with
Circuit 1, on to the simulation window, and wire the components together. Add threeGroundsto the
circuit as shown in Circuit 2 below.
Placing the cursor over the red target tool (crosshair), drag the tool to a point on Circuit 2 to the left of
the 1k resistor in the Transmission Circuit. Repeat for the blue target tool (crosshair), and drag the
tool to a point to the right of the 1k resistor in the Transmission Circuit. Now go back to the Traces
folder in the Properties pane. Find Trace 3 in the drop-down menu (green). Check the Show trace
box. Go back to your graph and drag on the new (green) Target tool so that a line connects the tool
(crosshair) to a point to the left of the 10 resistor in the Load Circuit.
Adjust the Y-axis scale on the graph to ± 120V with major gridlines every 5V so that you’ll see all
three traces. See diagram below. Now answer Questions 3 and 4 on the next page.
Remember: Click on the Start simulation button in the toolbar to start the simulation. You may need
to click on the Restart button (right of graph window) first to reset. Also, use the Pause simulation
button again to capture your traces on your graph.
Refer back to the Sliding Box activity in Unit 3 Week 3 to familiarise yourself with Yenka.

operating to their full capacity and so uses a voltmeter to measure the voltage being delivered
to the farmhouse.
