Theorems: Thevenin's, Norton's, Maximum Power Transfer
- Read Sections 4.5 to 4.11 of Alexander & Sadiku's Fundamentals
of Circuit Analysis (6th
- Make sure you understand the answers to Review Questions 4.1 to 4.10 on page 159. Quiz
questions will be similar to these Review Questions or Review Questions from earlier
- Turn in solutions to Problems 4.33*,
4.38*, 4.45*, 4.47*, 4.72*,
and 4.84* on pages 164 to 171.
- *For each of these problems your solution
must include a drawing of the Thevenin-equivalent circuit (and
for Problem 4.47 the Norton-equivalent circuit),
along with your calculations. Hint
for 4.33: Don't be put off by the fact that the load resistor is on the left-hand side of the circuit diagram instead of the right-hand side. This just means that when you remove the load resistor, you'll have two open terminals on the left side of the diagram instead of on the right side.
