Unit 3: Other Circuit Analysis Techniques Unit 3.1 – Source Transformations Source Transformations f In this lecture, you will: ± Learn to transform voltage sources and series resistors to current sources with parallel resistors and vice versa ± Learn to apply this technique as another tool in solving circuit problems One Port Networks f Sometimes we only care about the way a linear network behaves at its output terminals f We can represent this as a black box with a pair of terminals f This black box is called a one-port network Linear network + V - I One Port Network f The behavior of this one- port network can be completely described by the relationship between voltage and current at the terminals f We don’t care about the contents of the black box as long as the I-V characteristic is correct Linear network + V - I One Port Network--Example f To an outside observer, these two networks are identical 10 Ω 10 Ω 5 Ω Source Transformations f We can use a similar approach to convert between voltage and current sources to simplify circuits
