Figure 8-1

Solution The measured value of the current through R 3 is 925.9 A. This small (1.7%) difference from the

calculated value of 910

is because of rounding in each step of the calculation.

Simulation Connect the circuit in Figure 8-1 and run the simulation.

Example 8-2

This example illustrates the measurement of Thevenin voltage and resistance for the circuit in textbook Figure 8-33 and the resulting equivalent circuit.

Figure 8-2

Solution The measurements of V TH and R TH agree with those calculated in textbook Example 8-10.

Simulation Connect the original circuit in Figure 8-2 and run the simulations to measure V TH and R TH .

Remove the voltmeter and connect a 100

load resistor between points A and B in both the original circuit

and the equivalent circuit. Also connect an ammeter and verify that the current in the load is the same for the Thevenin equivalent circuit as it is for the original circuit.

Example 8-3

This example illustrates the measurement of the Norton equivalent current for the circuit in the previous example and a comparison of the equivalency of Thevenin’s and Norton’s circuits.

Figure 8-3

Solution The Norton current for the circuit is 28.99 mA as shown in the measurement in the circuit at the left. The Norton resistance is the same as the Thevenin resistance found in the previous example. The two equivalent circuits at the right show that when the same load resistance is connected to both the Thevenin and the Norton circuits, the load current is the same, 16.95 mA in this case. This illustrates that they are equivalent to each other as well as to the original circuit. The dc current source is available in the Sources parts bin.

Simulation Connect the circuit in Figure 8-3 and run the simulation. Then, place a 100

series with the ammeter in the original circuit. You will observe that the current through the load is 16.95 mA, which is the same as in each of the equivalent circuits.
