To Whom It May Concern,

Enclosed in this document you will find a detailed copy of my electrical technical report that is titled “Electrical Project Technical Report”. This report explains in detail all of my research that was found throughout the whole design process and also any calculations or charts that may be helpful. After doing multiple practice problems and doing research on the electrical theory, it was easy to create a breadboard with the correct circuitry. We were given limited amount of tools which included five nodes and 25 different resistors to create the circuit. The requirements also included a given variety of calculations that had to be met in a certain order for the project to be successful and work properly. It allowed me to get an insight of what it is to be an electrical engineer and the amount of research and calculations involved.
The report attached is very well documented on what exactly went on throughout the whole process and what needed to be done including a problem statement, methods/ procedures/equipment section, background information/basic theory, data/observations/results section, discussion section, a conclusion section, and a list of all the references used. With everything included and the conclusion at the end you will find it that the circuit ended up being very successful and ended up meeting all specifications with room to spare.

Sincerely,

I. Summary This project consisted of so many parts and various calculations that must be all taken into account and used in the most efficient and most accurate way. Every student was given a different current and voltage drop on each node. We had to figure out what combination of resistors between each node would create the specific voltage drop. The resistors that we used in this specific project had a tolerance of about five percent which is later explained in the research section of this report. The actual assembly of the breadboard was quite simple considering there were not many nodes and resistors needed in this project. After the whole thing was assembled properly, multiple tests were done on my own to insure the most accurate reading was going to show up. There were many…
