Thevenin Equivalent Circuit Solution 0 5 10 15 1 2 3 4 5 6 Number of Students Answer Lecture S7: Thevenin Equivalent 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 1 2 3 4 5 6 Number of Students Lecture S7: Thevenin Equivalent (repeat) The open circuit voltage is given by 10 Ω V oc = 10 V = 5 V 5 Ω + 10 Ω + 5 Ω since the circuit is basically a voltage divider, with three resistors. Therefore, V T = V oc = 5 V

Unformatted text preview: to zero, and determine the resistance looking into the terminals. A voltage source of zero strength is a short circuit, so the result is that the two 5 resistors are in series, forming an equivalent 10 . This is in turn in parallel with the 10 resistor. The equivalent resistance of two 10 resistors in parallel is 5 . Thus, R T = 5 The correct answer is therefore number 6. The class did much better on the second try....
