Superposition Theorem In a linear, bilateral network that has more than one source, the current and voltage in any part of the network can be found by adding algebraically the effect of each source separately. This analysis is done by: shorting each voltage source in turn opening each current source in turn

Checking the Superposition Solution R1R1 R2R2 R3R3 V1V1 V2V2 100 20 10 15 V13 V With 0.5 A flowing in R 3, the voltage across R 3 must be 5 V (Ohm’s Law). The voltage across R 1 must therefore be 10 volts (KVL) and the voltage across R 2 must be 8 volts (KVL). Solving for the currents in R 1 and R 2 will verify that the solution agrees with KCL. 0.5 A I R 1 = 0.1 A and I R 2 = 0.4 A I R 3 = 0.1 A A = 0.5 A
Thevenin’s Theorem Any network with two open terminals can be replaced by a single voltage source ( V TH ) and a series resistance ( R TH ) connected to the open terminals. A component can be removed to produce the open terminals.
A Wheatstone bridge can be Thevenized. 30 40 R1R1 R2R2 60 40 R3R3 R4R4 A B 45 V R5R5 Problem: Find the voltage drop across R 5. The bridge is unbalanced and Thevenin’s theorem is a good choice. R 5 will be removed in this procedure making A and B the Thevenin terminals.
Determining Thevenin Resistance and Voltage R TH is determined by shorting the voltage source and calculating the circuit’s total resistance as seen from open terminals A and B. V TH is determined by calculating the voltage between open terminals A and B.

Norton’s Theorem Any network with two terminals can be replaced by a single current source and parallel resistance connected across the terminals. The two terminals are usually labeled something such as A and B The Norton current is usually labeled I N The Norton resistance is usually labeled R N
Determining Norton Current and Voltage I N is determined by calculating the current through a short placed across terminals A and B. R N is determined by shorting the voltage source and calculating the circuit’s total resistance as seen from open terminals A and B (same procedure as for R TH ).
A Wheatstone bridge can be Nortonized. 30 40 R1R1 R2R2 60 40 R3R3 R4R4 A B 45 V R5R5 Replace R 5 with a short and determine I N. R EQ = I T = A I R 2 = A I R 1 = A I N = A Apply the current divider. Apply KCL. ITIT ITIT IR2IR2 IR1IR1 ININ R N = R TH

It provides A total flow, regardless of what is connected across it. With no load, all of the current will flow in R N. When shorted, all of the current will flow in the short. I R 5 = A V R 5 = 3.75 V
