    Hello, I'm using Pspice first time.
    what is exactly "Maximum forward beta"?
    I thinks that means beta, but if i use only 1mA, or more
    then maxium beta would be changed.

    and what value is beta - usally call just 1 value.....
    what is standard?

    The collector-emitter voltage is very high in the example above.
    Normally you want the c-e voltage to be less than 0.5v (for a number of reasons) and this is the first thing you should sort out.
    The next thing is to add a load to the circuit and work out how much current will flow through the load.
    Suppose it is 100mA.
    Then you assume the transistor has a gain of 100.
    This means the base needs 1mA.
    Can you supply 1mA to the base?
    Then you use a transistor that will pass 200mA or MORE and put it in the circuit.
    Use a transistor with a rating of 200mA to 500mA.
    If the voltage is more than 12v, you may need to look at the voltage rating of the transistor.
    That's the simple approach.
