8/18/2005 Example_Analysis of a Complex Diode Circuit.doc 1/5 Jim Stiles The Univ. of Kansas Dept. of EECS Example: Analysis of a Complex Diode Circuit Consider this circuit with two ideal diodes : Let’s analyze this circuit and find ,, , 11 2 2 and ii DD D v ! Remember, we must accomplish each of the five steps: Step 1: ASSUME that both D 1 and D 2 are “on” (might as well!). Step 2: ENFORCE the equalities 12 0 == , by replacing each ideal diode with a short circuit. 2 i + 2 10.0 V 1 + 1 -10.0 V R 1 =10K R 2 =5K
