Find Thevenin's and Norton's Equivalent Circuits:Suppose that , and . Solution The circuit has both independent and dependent sources. In these cases, we need to find open circuit voltage and short circuit current to determine Norton's (and also Thevenin's) equivalent circuits.
Determine voltage across and using voltage division rule. Assume that , , , and Solution: Please note that the voltage division rule cannot be directly applied. This is to say that:
Thévenin's Theorem is deployed to solve a simple circuit which contains two independent sources. The solution is explained step-by-step.
Thevenin's Theorem is deployed to solve a quite simple circuit with only one independent voltage source. The solution is explained step-by-step.
