EE 442 dependent sources – 1 Dependent sources As we begin to use simple circuits to model more complex circuit behavior, we need to add some items to our tool kit. Dependent sources behave just like independent voltage and current sources, except their values are dependent in some way on another voltage or current in the circuit. This seems a bit odd, but this behavior corresponds very closely to the way a number of interesting and useful electronic devices behave. We’re not to try to get a detailed understanding of how these devices work internally – that’s the subject for an electronics or semiconductor class. However, we can form a reasonable model of how the electronic devices behaves in a circuit by using dependent sources.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
