ELEC 101 DC circuits 36 2010/11 Spring load R L source voltage V S Power Transfer I source resistance R S V S for maximum current flow into load, R L = 0 , I L = V S /R S for maximum voltage across load, R L = , V L = V S I L = V S /R S V L = V S + R S R L = R L = 0 I L + V L V S R S V S V L I L S S R V 0 R L = 0 R L = Vary R L to maximize P L Load line KVL : V s = I L R s + V L (load line) P = V L x I L Question: Given a fixed voltage source with a fixed output impedance, what is the load impedance that will maximize power extraction? Example: voltage source can be the output of a sensor, and load can be the input to an amplifier. This is an impedance matching problem.

ELEC 101 DC circuits 40 2010/11 Spring DC circuit analysis •G i v e n values of all circuit elements, all the voltage and current sources, find the currents for each branch and voltages of all nodes • Approaches: use KCL and KVL to generate a set of linear equations. Usually there will be N independent equations for N unknowns. Need to solve simultaneous linear equations •N o d a l analysis–Use KCL at each node to generate the equations, useful for circuits with current sources • Mesh analysis–Use KVL for each loop to generate the equations, useful for circuits with voltage sources •S o m e t i m e s get redundant equations. E.g. N nodes = N equations. But there are only N 1 independent voltages. So one of the N equations is redundant 3k 1k 12V 6k 3k 3V 2k
