Unformatted text preview: ECE 201 Lecture 13 Thevenin’s and Norton’s Theorems Linear Passive Two-Terminal Networks • A linear two-terminal network is called passive if it consists of resistors, independent sources, but no dependent sources • The v-i characteristic of a linear passive two-terminal network has non-negative slope • (Thevenin Theorem) A linear passive two-terminal network is equivalent to an independent voltage source V in series with a resistance R – Exception: v-i characteristic of the passive network has ∞ slope Linear passive two-terminal network Thevenin equivalent circuit Norton Theorem • (Norton Theorem) A linear passive two-terminal network is equivalent to an independent current source I in parallel with a resistance R – Exception: v-i characteristic of the passive network has zero slope Linear passive two-terminal network Norton equivalent circuit From Measured Data: Solve Ri+V s =V directly Linear resistive network with dependent sources and Fixed independent sources i s (mA) v (V) 1 6 2 10 Thevenin equivalent circuit Advantage of Having Equivalent Circuits Example from the last lecture Norton equivalent circuit When R changes, one has to solve new nodal (mesh) equations While for equivalent circuit, this is much easier. Why Equivalent Circuits? Linear Network (Resistors, indep....
