Unformatted text preview: Problem 1 This problem asks you to find the Thevenin and Norton equivalent circuits of the circuit above using source transformations and parallel/series reductions. Begin by transforming the 16V voltage source and 8 resistor circled above into Norton equivalent circuit: Rn = Rt = 8 and Is = Vs/R = 2A flowing downward Next, combine the two Norton circuits in parallel in the blue circle: Rn = (2 8 Is = Is1 + Is2 = (2A) + (3A) = 5A flowing downward Note its Thevenin voltage = Is*Rn = 8V, where the downward node is positive. Third steps, lets transform the current source and resistor in the green circle into Thevenin circuit: Rt = Rn = 2 and Vs = IsR = 2V, where its left node is positive. After these transformations, the reduced circuit is draw below: We may immediately combine the resistors in blue circle: Rt = 5 , Vt = 10 V, where its downward node is positive. EECS 314 Fall 2007 HW 04 solutions Problems 1 and 2 Page 1 of 3 Since the blue and red circles are connected in parallel, we would like to transform them into Norton circuit. Blue: Rn = Rt = 5 and Is = Vs/R = 2 A, flowing downward Red: Rn = Rt = 5 and Is = Vs/R = 5 A, flowing upward Combine them to get one Norton Circuit: Rn = 55 and Is =  Is1 + Is2 = 2 + 5 A = 3 A, flowing upward There is a 2.5 resistor left. Finally, we transform the Norton circuit above into Thevenin circuit so that we may combine the 2.5 resistor easily. Rt = Rn = 2.5 and Vs = Is*R = 7.5 V Combine the 2.5 resistor, we get the final Thevenin equivalent circuit : Rt = 2.5+2.5 = 5 and Vs = 7.5V Note that node a is positive and node b is negative. The Norton equivalent circuit : Rn = Rt = and Is = Vs/R = 1.5 A Note that the source current flows from node b to node a.

Note that the current passing through the resistors can be easily solved since we know how much power them absorb....
