Chapter 4 Circuit Theorems SJTU

Linearity Property Linearity is the property of an element describing a linear relationship between cause and effect. A linear circuit is one whose output is linearly ( or directly proportional) to its input. SJTU

Fig For Example 4.2 SJTU

Superposition(1) The superposition principle states that voltage across (or current through) an element in a linear circuit is the algebraic sum of the voltages across (or currents through) that element due to each independent source acting alone. SJTU

Superposition(2) Steps to Apply Superposition Principle:
Turn off all independent source except one source. Find the output(voltage or current) due to that active source using nodal or mesh analysis. Repeat step 1 for each of the other independent sources. Find the total contribution by adding algebraically all the contributions due to the independent sources. SJTU

Fig For Example 4.3 SJTU

Source Transformation(1)
A source transformation is the process of replacing a voltage source Vs in series with a resistor R by a current source is in parallel with a resistor R, or vice versa. Vs=isR or is=Vs/R SJTU

Source Transformation(2)
It also applies to dependent sources: SJTU

Fig. 4.17 for Example, find out Vo
SJTU

So, we get vo=3.2V SJTU

Example: find out I (use source transformation )

Substitution Theorem I1=2A, I2=1A, I3=1A, V3=8V
I1=2A, I2=1A, I3=1A, V3=8V I1=2A, I2=1A, I3=1A, V3=8V I1=2A, I2=1A, I3=1A, V3=8V SJTU

Substitution Theorem If the voltage across and current through any branch of a dc bilateral network are known, this branch can be replaced by any combination of elements that will maintain the same voltage across and current through the chosen branch. SJTU

Substitution Theorem OR SJTU

Thevenin’s Theorem A linear two-terminal circuit can be replaced by an equivalent circuit consisting of a voltage source Vth in series with a resistor Rth, where Vth is the open-circuit voltage at the terminals and Rth is the input or equivalent resistance at the terminals when the independent source are turned off. SJTU

(a) original circuit, (b) the Thevenin equivalent circuit
d SJTU

Simple Proof by figures
+ V=Voc-RoI SJTU

Thevenin’s Theorem Consider 2 cases in finding Rth:
Case 1 If the network has no dependent sources, just turn off all independent sources, calculate the equivalent resistance of those resistors left. Case 2 If the network has dependent sources, there are two methods to get Rth: SJTU

Thevenin’s Theorem Case 2 If the network has dependent sources, there are two methods to get Rth: Turn off all the independent sources, apply a voltage source v0 (or current source i0) at terminals a and b and determine the resulting current i0 (or resulting voltage v0), then Rth= v0/ i0 SJTU

Thevenin’s Theorem Case 2 If the network has dependent sources, there are two methods to get Rth: 2. Calculate the open-circuit voltage Voc and short-circuit current Isc at the terminal of the original circuit, then Rth=Voc/Isc Rth=Voc/Isc SJTU

Examples SJTU

Norton’s Theorem A linear two-terminal circuit can be replaced by an equivalent circuit consisting of a current source IN in parallel with a resistor RN, where IN is the short-circuit current through the terminals and RN is the input or equivalent resistance at the terminals when the independent sources are turned off. SJTU

(a) Original circuit, (b) Norton equivalent circuit
d (c) N SJTU

Examples SJTU

Maximum Power Transfer
Replacing the original network by its Thevenin equivalent, then the power delivered to the load is RL a b SJTU

Power delivered to the load as a function of RL
We can confirm that is the maximum power by showing that SJTU

Maximum Power Transfer (several questions)
If the load RL is invariable, and RTh is variable, then what should RTh be to make RL get maximum power? If using Norton equivalent to replace the original circuit, under what condition does the maximum transfer occur? Is it true that the efficiency of the power transfer is always 50% when the maximum power transfer occurs? SJTU

Examples SJTU

Tellegen Theorem If there are b branches in a lumped circuit, and the voltage uk, current ik of each branch apply passive sign convention, then we have . SJTU

Inference of Tellegen Theorem
If two lumped circuits and have the same topological graph with b branches, and the voltage, current of each branch apply passive sign convention, then we have not only SJTU

Example SJTU

Reciprocity Theorem 2  3  6  3  6  2  SJTU

Reciprocity Theorem (only applicable to reciprocity networks)
Case 1 The current in any branch of a network, due to a single voltage source E anywhere else in the network, will equal the current through the branch in which the source was originally located if the source is placed in the branch in which the current I was originally measured. SJTU

Reciprocity Theorem (only applicable to reciprocity networks)
Case 2 SJTU

Reciprocity Theorem (only applicable to reciprocity networks)
Case 3 SJTU
