Sample text

For example, in your house, the AC voltage coming in is always at a (relatively) fixed 230V AC. Over time, the power requirements of your house change as electrical appliances turn on or off. This means that the resulting alternating current generated by this voltage may be higher or lower at any given point in time. If no electricity is being used, then no current flows into your house. But the 230V AC is still present. AC Waveforms While a DC voltage doesn’t change, AC voltage is always alternating back and forth in a fixed way.

We have no common frame of reference. So, when we refer to a signal ground, what we are usually referring to is the return path for small voltage sources, like small batteries or other small electrical signals. In many cases, it makes sense to connect one side of all of our voltage sources together to the common signal ground. This helps to commonize all of our voltage measurements to one single reference point. The practicality of combining voltage source returns into a single common signal ground can be shown with a simple example.

In general, an oscilloscope is a voltage measurement device. However, special probes are available that can be used to measure current. The abilities of an oscilloscope over a standard voltmeter are many: • Observation of the voltage over time to see if it is changing or not. • Calculation of the frequency of an alternating waveform. • Visualization of electrical noise that may be coming into the circuit. The downside of an oscilloscope is that it is generally larger, bulkier, and more expensive than a normal voltmeter.
