Outline Concept of Equivalent networks Equivalent networks only with resistors Equivalent networks with independent sources Equivalent networks with controlled sources

Outline Concept of Equivalent networks Equivalent networks only with resistors Equivalent networks with independent sources Equivalent networks with controlled sources

Network Two-terminal network  Network: Part of a complete circuit

Equivalent Network Network A and B are equivalent. Network A v i Network B v i i v i-v characteristics Equivalent networks in circuits are just like functions in programming!

Circuit Design is like Programming int main () { // create array of grades double quiz1_grade[50] = …… double total = 0; for (int i=0; i<50; i++){ total += quiz1_grade[i]; } double avg = total / 50; print avg; return 0; } (the program for computing the average score of the first quiz) The complete circuit is the “main”. Put everything in “main” is not a good idea.

Circuit Design is like Programming Use function int main () { // create array of grades double quiz1_grade[50] = …… print avg_score(quiz1_grade); } function avg_score(double* score){ double total = 0; for (int i=0; i<50; i++){ total += score[i]; } return total/50; } Define IO of a function: input: double array (scores) output: double (average score) Easy to read! Can be re-used! Understandable name We do not care what happens in the function.

Circuit Design is like Programming Complete Circuit (Main) i v (IO of function) Name??? Network (function) Simpler equivalent network (function name) Function i-v characteristics

Benefit of Equivalent Network 1. Simplify the complete circuit Easier to analyze 2. Useful network can be reused just like elements Voltage amplifier (refer to lecture 5) Current source (later) Negative Resistor (later)

Outline Concept of Equivalent networks Equivalent networks only with resistors Equivalent networks with sources Equivalent networks with controlled sources

Series i-v curse

Parallel i-v curse

Example 2.4 Find i

Beyond Series and Parallel = What is R eq ? R eq Find i-v characteristics Way1: Add voltage source find current Way2: Add current source find voltage

Cubic Puzzle All resistors have resistance R. A and B are the two terminals of the network. = What is R eq ? R eq Hint: consider i-v characteristics

Cubic Puzzle 2 (solution is at the end of the slides)

Infinity Puzzle = What is R eq ? R eq Infinite resistors (solution is at the end of the slides)

Outline Concept of Equivalent networks Equivalent networks only with resistors Equivalent networks with sources Equivalent networks with controlled sources

Sources i-v curse Voltage Sources Current Sources i-v curse

Source Transformation

The two circuits are equivalent. and

Source Transformation

Why Source Transformation? Parallel

Why Source Transformation? Series Be careful about the directions of voltage and current sources

Example Find v o Simply the networks by their equivalent networks

Example Find v o Network A Network B

Example Find v o Bad idea…… Do not put the target in the network to be simplified. How about ….

Example Find v o Two-terminal Network

Example Find equivalent network Typical Network

Example Find equivalent network

Example

Outline Concept of Equivalent networks Equivalent networks only with resistors Equivalent networks with sources Equivalent networks with controlled sources

Equivalent Network with Controlled Source – Example 2.8 What is the equivalent network? Find the i-v characteristics Resistor Negative Resistor!

Source Transformation for Controlled Sources vcvc icic

Equivalent Network with Controlled Source – Example 2.8

Remind 1 When computing i-v characteristics, we need reference direction of v and i Without reference direction, we cannot really answer the i-v characteristics Load Network Source Network The current goes into the terminal with high potential. The current goes out the terminal with high potential. Network without sources Network with sources

Remind 2 Select good networks Put a controlled source and its control variable in the same network

Three-terminal Network Chapter 4.6 (out of the scope) Three-terminal network

Four-terminal Network Chapter 14

Problem 2.32, 2.36
