Figure 1: An equivalent Circuit for a transistor Amplifier
The way to find out Thevenin’s equivalent circuit as seen from the nodes 3 and 0 is to measure the open
oc
circuit voltage voc = v2 = V (3) and the short circuit current isc flowing from 3 to 0 . vT h = voc , RT h = visc
The following PSpice code evaluates the open circuit voltage between 3 and 0 by inserting a very high
resistance across the two nodes and measure the voltage between them. This is voc = vT h .

Run the simulation to get V (3) = −2.4999
The next PSpice code computes the short circuit current between 3 and 0 by inserting a 0 volts voltage
source and a series very small resistance between the two nodes and measure the current flowing through
them. This is isc .

Run the simulation to get I(V 3A) = −1.000E − 04
Next divide the open circuit voltage V (3) obtained from the first simulation by the short circuit current
obtained from the second simulation I(V 3A) to get RT h = −2.4999
−1e−4 = 24.999kΩ.
Use of .TF command
PSPice can also find vT h , RT h using a very high resistance between 3 and 0 and using the .TF command
as follows:

From the output of the simulation, V (3) = voc = vT h = −2.4999 volts and the output resistance at V (3)
(open circuit condition) equals RT h = 2.5e + 4 = 25kΩ
