Lecture Chapter 4C Thevenin Equivalent Circuits

2
Problem 1Problem 1 Two measurements are made on the same "linear mystery circuit" as shown. What would be the measured current Im if the 50-ohm resistor is replaced by a short circuit? ( 96 Amps)

3
Thevenin: simple model for complex circuit To find Thevenin Equivalent at a terminal a-b: 1.Find V open circuit 2.Find I short circuit 3.Vth = Voc 4.Rth = Voc/Isc Vth = Voc = 30V; Rth = 120Ω

4
"Lookback" resistance Another way to find Rth – Turn off all sources Replace Voltage source with short Replace Current source with open Calculate Rab, equivalent resistance

5
Find Thevenin Eq at a-b note how R4 does not affect Voc! [Vth=__Rth=8]

6
Problem 3Problem 3 Find the Thèvenin equivalent circuit at the terminals A-B. Rt = 25Ω;Vt = 160V

7
Norton Equivalent Norton vs Thevenin Equivalents – same at a-b

8
Thevenin and Norton Equivalents would be indistinguishable at a-b To find Norton Equivalent, find Thevenin, set In = Vth/Rth, and Rn = Rth this is the basis of the "source transform" method, which can help simplify circuits

9
Given Thevenin Equivalent, What is the Norton Equivalent?

10
Find Thevenin by "Source Transform"

11
Another Way to Look at Thevenin Equivalents All our circuit elements and laws are linear – Vs = 9V, Is = 10A, V=IR, sum of v= 0, sum of i=0 We can model the V-I curve of any linear circuit – define equation of line: slope and a y-offset Rth and Vth

12
Do Handouts Problem 1/2

13
More Thevenin Equivalents Dependent Sources – Find Voc the same (use NV, MC, Source Xform, etc) – For Rth: You can always find Isc, then Rth = Voc/Isc OR Turn off Independent sources, – hook up a “Test Voltage Source” Vt (not Vth!!) – Find current produced by test source It, » Then Rth = Vt/It

14
Find Thevenin at a-b (Vth=8, Rth=1) Option 1) Find Voc, Isc 24

15
Option 2, Rth by Test Source 24

16
Problem 2Problem 2 Find the Thèvenin equivalent circuit at the terminals U-V. (Rt = 9.74) Circuits with only dependent sources are resistive. MUST hook up external test source

18
One More (if time permits)

20
Do Handout problems 3 and 4

21
Max Power Transfer Q: What is the most power we can deliver to RL?

22
RL gets Max Power when RL = Rth Thevenin Eq of circuit in previous slide:

23
Example: Max power RL can get?

24
Find io by Superposition Fundamental theorem in physics, – applies to ccts too.

25
Superposition continued Activate each source separately, add results

26

27
1) (ans: 48V, 16 Ohms)
