Proteus is very famous software among electrical, electronics and computer engineering students. Many students worldwide use proteus for electrical engineering project and microcontroller based projects. In this article I am going to present you proteus tutorials. These are video tutorials on Proteus. Because according to latest research people learn fast with video lectures than reading. That’s why I have made these video tutorials for those who want to learn a very famous software Proteus. It is very famous software in electrical, electronics, computer and telecom engineering students for simulation of electrical, electronics and microcontrollers based circuits.
What is Proteus and proteus tutorials?
Proteus is a simulation software for electric circuits provided by Labcenter electronics. Proteus provides thee type of platforms for simulation and designing of electric circuits. Main platform of Proteus is intelligent schematic input system (ISIS). ISIS is used for simulation of electrical , electronics, embedded system and microcontrollers based circuits. Proteus VSM is complete software to learn microcontrollers. Because it have built in libraries of many series of microcontrollers like microchip, ARM, AVR and 8051 etc. Latest version of Proteus also contain built in compiler to write code for these microcontrollers. Proteus lastest version include following interactive features for simulation of microcontrollers based circuits :
- Graph based simulation
- Libraries of many microcontrollers
- Many peripheral modules like LED, LCD, Keypad, graphic LCD displays, RS232 terminal , switches, push buttons, motors, LEDs, and lamps etc.
- Virtual instruments like oscilloscope , counter , timer, voltmeter, Ammeter etc
- SPICE components
- Direct simulation of microcontrollers based circuits by built in C compilers.
- ARES for PCB designing.
It is difficult to mention each and every feature of Proteus in this article. But I have discussed maximum features in my video lectures below.
Why Electrical engineers should use Proteus?
In first year of engineering, electrical engineers study basics courses of electrical engineering and they don’t get a chance or time to work on practical aspects of electrical and electronics engineer. They also don’t find more interactive practical work in lab. But with the help of Proteus first year electrical engineering students can get their hands dirty with practical knowledge of electrical and electronics based circuits.But now the question come into someones mind, how to use Proteus to learn electrical and electronics circuits more interactively ? I will answer this question with the help of one example. For example you are studying electronics devices circuits course in first year of engineering. To learn electronics devices course in a better way, you can use built in simulator models of electronics devices to learn behavior of these devices. For example you are studying half wave rectification circuit in you class and you instructor told you about results output wave forms of half wave rectification circuit. To learn this circuit in better way, you can use Proteus to simulate this circuit and to verify results.
How to learn Proteus ?
It is difficult for anyone to learn all features of any software at once. The best way to learn any software is its practice. To learn Proteus, one should use it with practical examples. I have made following video lectures with examples of electrical and electronics circuits. I will keep updating this post with new video lectures regularly. So keep visiting my blog for more video lectures.
