Thevenin Theorem

According to Thevenin theorem an active circuit between two load terminals can be considered as an individual voltage source. This source’s voltage would be open circuit voltage across terminals, and the source’s internal impedance is the equivalent circuit impedance across terminals. Let’s take a simple example of a resistive active circuit as shown below to understand Thevenin Theorem.… Read More »

Norton Theorem

Any active network can be depicted as an equal current source with a parallel impedance linked across it. It is called Norton Theorem to simplify any network by converting the active portion of that network to an equal current source with a parallel linked impedance. What is Norton Theorem? Norton Theorem is alternative of Thevenin Theorem. In this… Read More »
