1 Superposition A direct result of the linearity property • Recall Linearity Theorem • The total response y is the sum of the responses a i u i . Each a i u i is the response of the circuit to u i acting alone. m m u a u a u a y + + + = 2 2 1 1 Superposition Principle of Superposition: In a linear circuit containing multiple independent sources, any output (voltage or current) in the circuit may be calculated by adding together the contributions due to each independent source acting alone. Procedures: 1. Determine contribution due to an independent source. Set all other independent source values to 0. 2. Repeat for each independent source. 3. Sum individual contributions to obtain desired output

2 Notes to Superposition • We consider one independent source at a time while all other independent sources are turned off (deactivated, killed). • Dependent sources are left intact . • Superposition cannot be
