EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a3 Bottom view of board – note which way the wires go

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a4 NODAL ANALYSIS (“Node-Voltage Method”) 0) Choose a reference node 1) Define unknown node voltages 2) Apply KCL to each unknown node, expressing current in terms of the node voltages =>N equations for N unknown node voltages 3) Solve for node voltages => determine branch currents MESH ANALYSIS (“Mesh-Current Method”) 1) Select M independent mesh currents such that at least one mesh current passes through each branch* M = #branches - #nodes + 1 2) Apply KVL to each mesh, expressing voltages in terms of mesh currents =>M equations for M unknown mesh currents 3) Solve for mesh currents => determine node voltages Primary Formal Circuit Analysis Methods *Simple method for planar circuits A mesh current is not necessarily identified with a branch current.

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a5 1.Select M mesh currents. 2.Apply KVL to each mesh. 3.Solve for mesh currents. Mesh Analysis: Example #1

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a6 Problem: We cannot write KVL for meshes a and b because there is no way to express the voltage drop across the current source in terms of the mesh currents. Solution: Define a “supermesh” – a mesh which avoids the branch containing the current source. Apply KVL for this supermesh. Mesh Analysis with a Current Source iaia ibib

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a7 Eq’n 1: KVL for supermesh Eq’n 2: Constraint due to current source: Mesh Analysis: Example #2 iaia ibib

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a8 Mesh Analysis with Dependent Sources Exactly analogous to Node Analysis Dependent Voltage Source: (1) Formulate and write KVL mesh eqns. (2) Include and express dependency constraint in terms of mesh currents Dependent Current Source: (1) Use supermesh. (2) Include and express dependency constraint in terms of mesh currents

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a9 Superposition Method (Linear Circuits Only) A linear circuit is constructed only of linear elements (linear resistors, linear dependent sources) and independent sources. Principle of Superposition: In any linear circuit containing multiple independent sources, the current or voltage at any point in the network may be calculated as the algebraic sum of the individual contributions of each source acting alone. Procedure: 1.Determine contribution due to an independent source Set all other sources to zero (voltage source  short circuit; current source  open circuit) 2.Repeat for each independent source 3.Sum individual contributions to obtain desired voltage or current

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a13 Voltage sources in series can be replaced by an equivalent voltage source: Current sources in parallel can be replaced by an equivalent current source: Source Combinations i1i1 i2i2 ≡ i 1 +i 2 –+–+ –+–+ v1v1 v2v2 ≡ –+–+ v 1 +v 2

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a14 Thévenin Equivalent Circuit Any* linear 2-terminal (1-port) network of indep. voltage sources, indep. current sources, and linear resistors can be replaced by an equivalent circuit consisting of an independent voltage source in series with a resistor without affecting the operation of the rest of the circuit. network of sources and resistors ≡ –+–+ V Th R Th RLRL iLiL +vL–+vL– a b RLRL iLiL +vL–+vL– a b Thévenin equivalent circuit “load” resistor

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a15 I-V Characteristic of Thévenin Equivalent The I-V characteristic for the series combination of elements is obtained by adding their voltage drops: –+–+ V Th R Th a b i i + v ab – v = V Th + iR I-V characteristic of resistor: v = iR I-V characteristic of voltage source: v = V Th For a given current i, the voltage drop v ab is equal to the sum of the voltages dropped across the source ( V Th ) and the across the resistor ( iR Th ) v

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a16 Finding V Th and R Th Only two points are needed to define a line. Choose two convenient points: 1. Open circuit across terminals a,b i = 0, v ab ≡ v oc 2. Short circuit across terminals a,b v ab = 0, i ≡ -i sc = -V Th /R Th i v = V Th + iR v ab -i sc v oc – + V Th R i sc i i

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a17 Calculating a Thévenin Equivalent 1.Calculate the open-circuit voltage, v oc 2.Calculate the short-circuit current, i sc Note that i sc is in the direction of the open-circuit voltage drop across the terminals a,b ! network of sources and resistors a b + v oc – network of sources and resistors a b i sc

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a20 Alternative Method of Calculating R Th For a network containing only independent sources and linear resistors: 1.Set all independent sources to zero voltage source  short circuit current source  open circuit 2.Find equivalent resistance R eq between the terminals by inspection Or, set all independent sources to zero 1.Apply a test voltage source V TEST 2.Calculate I TEST network of independent sources and resistors, with each source set to zero R eq network of independent sources and resistors, with each source set to zero I TEST –+–+ V TEST

EECS 42, Spring 2005Week 3a22 Comments on Dependent Sources A dependent source establishes a voltage or current whose value depends on the value of a voltage or current at a specified location in the circuit. (device model, used to model behavior of transistors & amplifiers) To specify a dependent source, we must identify: 1.the controlling voltage or current (must be calculated, in general) 2.the relationship between the controlling voltage or current and the supplied voltage or current 3.the reference direction for the supplied voltage or current The relationship between the dependent source and its reference cannot be broken! –Dependent sources cannot be turned off for various purposes (e.g. to find the Thévenin resistance, or in analysis using Superposition).
