Everything in the original circuit, except the load may be replaced by an equivalent circuit. The equivalent circuit consists of a parallel combination of a current source and a resistance.
2mA Norton Current I N Norton Resistance
There are a bunch of rules for how to calculate the Norton Current and Norton Resistance. However, a shortcut is to find the Thevenin Equivalent circuit and then convert it to a Norton
Besides using traditional circuit analysis using Ohm’s Law, or Superposition, Mesh Analysis, Thevenin’s Theorem, and Norton’s Theorem, there are other circuit analysis techniques. A couple include: Nodal Analysis and Millman’s Theorem Do more hw problems from back of chap 12 (9, 10, 11, or 12) if time
In the following circuit solve for V TH, R TH, I N, R N, I L and V L
Solve for V L using traditional Ohm’s Law technique, Mesh Analysis, and Thevenin Analysis
R L (Ω)0V T (V)I (A)P L (W)P i (W)P T (W)Eff (%)
? What circuit analysis technique can we use to solve for this? Thevenin’s Theorem.R TH = 5k Ω 6kOhm I’ve checked this technique using Ohm’s law and it works. See following numbers:
