1 hevenin Equivalent Circuits Introduction In each of these problems, we are shown a circuit and its hevenin or Norton equivalent circuit. he hevenin and Norton equivalent circuits are described using three parameters: V oc, the open circuit voltage of the circuit, I sc, the short circuit of the circuit and R th, the hevenin resistance of the circuit. Each problem, asks us to determine the value of asked to determine the value of V oc, I sc or R th. hevenin equivalent circuits are discussed in Section 5.5 of Introduction to Electric Circuits by R.C. Dorf and J.A Svoboda. Norton equivalent circuits are discussed in Section 5.6. Worked Examples Example 1: he circuit shown in Figure 1b is the hevenin equivalent circuit of the circuit shown in Figure 1a. Find the value of the open circuit voltage, V oc and hevenin resistance, R th. Figure 1 he circuit considered in Example 1. Solution: he circuit from Figure 1a can be reduced to its hevenin equivalent circuit in four steps shown in Figure 2a, b, c and d. A source transformation transforms the series voltage source and 20 Ω resistor in Figure 1a into the parallel current source and 20 Ω resistor in Figure 2a. he current source current is calculated from the voltage source voltage and resistance as 20 V = 1 A. After the source 20 Ω transformation, the 20 Ω resistor is parallel to the 80 Ω resistor. Replacing these parallel resistors with the equivalent 16 Ω resistor produces the circuit shown in Figure 2b. 2

2 A second source transformation transforms the parallel current source and 16 Ω resistor in Figure 2b into the series voltage source and 16 Ω resistor in Figure 2c. he voltage source 1 A 16 Ω = 16 V. After voltage is calculated from the current source current and resistance as ( )( ) the source transformation, the two16 Ω resistors are in series. Replacing these series resistors with the equivalent 32 Ω resistor produces the circuit shown in Figure 2d.

A source transformation transforms the parallel current source and 3 Ω resistor in Figure 3a into the series voltage source and 3 Ω resistor in Figure 4a. he voltage source voltage is 2 A 3 Ω = 6 V. After the source calculated from the current source current and resistance as ( )( ) transformation, the 3 Ω and 6 Ω resistors are in series. Also, the 6V and 3 V voltage sources are in series. Replacing the series resistors with the equivalent 9 Ω resistor and the series voltage sources with the equivalent 8 V source produces the circuit shown in Figure 4b. A second source transformation transforms the series 8 V voltage source and 9 Ω resistor in Figure 4b into the parallel current source and 9 Ω resistor in Figure 4c. he current source current is calculated from the voltage source voltage and resistance as 8 V = 0.89 A. After the 9 Ω source transformation, the 9 Ω resistor is parallel to the 6 Ω resistor. Replacing these parallel resistors with the equivalent 3.6 Ω resistor produces the circuit shown in Figure 4d. A third source transformation transforms the parallel 0.89 A current source and 3.6 Ω resistor in Figure 4d into the series voltage source and 3.6 Ω resistor in Figure 4e. he voltage source voltage is calculated from the current source current and resistance as 0.89 A 3.6 Ω = 3.2 V.

A source transformation transforms the series 10 V voltage source and 5 Ω resistor in Figure 5a into the parallel current source and 5 Ω resistor in Figure 6a. he current source current is calculated from the voltage source voltage and resistance as 10 V = 2 A. After the 5 Ω source transformation, the 5 Ω resistor is parallel to the 20 Ω resistor. Also, the 2 A current source is parallel to the 1 A current source. Replacing these parallel resistors with the equivalent 4 Ω resistor and replacing the parallel current sources with the equivalent 1 A current source produces the circuit shown in Figure 6b. A second source transformation transforms the parallel 1 A current source and 4 Ω resistor in Figure 6b into the series voltage source and 4 Ω resistor in Figure 6c. he voltage 1 A 4 Ω = 4 V source voltage is calculated from the current source current and resistance as ( )( ). After the source transformation, the two 4 Ω resistors are in series. Replacing the series resistors with the equivalent 8 Ω produces the circuit shown in Figure 6d.
