1 Circuit Elements Circuit element is a mathematical model of a real device Active element : is capable of generating energy Examples: generators, batteries Passive element : absorbs (dissipates) energy Examples: resistors, capacitors, inductors Active Element The most important active elements are voltage and current sources Independent sources – independent voltage source – independent current source Dependent sources – dependent voltage source – dependent current source Active Element Independent voltage source provides a specified voltage (independent of the current through the element) v + V -
