Lecture 8, Slide 3 EECS40, Fall 2003 Prof. King 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 Lecture 8, Slide 4 EECS40, Fall 2003 Prof. King Finding V Th and R Th Only two points are needed to define a line.
