a) How many nodes, branches, and independent loops are there in the circuit respectively? Figure 1 According to Figure 1, there are 3 nodes, 6 branches, and 4 independent loops. b) When R L = 6Ω, find current I x . Figure 2 In Figure 2, apply nodal analysis: Node 1: V 1 = 32 V Node 2: V1 V2 4 + 2 = V2 0 12 + V2 0 6 + V2 0 1 Results: V 2 = 20/3 V, I x = V2/12=5/9 A c) Find the Thevenin equivalent circuit between the terminals a and b. Figure 3 In Figure 3, V TH = V ab . Apply nodal Analysis: Node 1: V 1 = 32V Node 2: V1 V2 4 + 2 = V2 0 12 + V2 0 1

Results: V 2 = V ab = V TH = 7.5 V Figure 3 In Figure 4, Calculate R TH : R TH = 4 Ω || 12 Ω || 1 Ω = 1/( 1/4+1/12+1/1 ) Ω= 0.75 Ω Thevenin equivalent circuit is as in Figure 4. Figure 4 d) Find the value of R L when the power delivered to R L becomes maximum. What is the maximum power through R L ? When the power of R L is maximum. R L = R TH = 0.75 Ω.

Unformatted text preview: Power = V TH R L +R TH 2 R TH = 18.75 W A Wheatstone bridge, shown on the right, is used to measure the resistance across R x . It is considered balanced when the voltage V G is zero. R 2 is an adjustable resistor. R 1 = 200 , and R 3 = 400 . 1.
