Most practical circuits have
combinations of series and parallel
components.
Identifying series-parallel relationships
Components that are connected in
series will share a common path.
Components that are connected in
parallel will be connected across

Most practical circuits have various combinations of
series and parallel components. You can frequently
simplify analysis by combining series and parallel
components.
Combination circuits
An important analysis method is to form an equivalent
circuit. An equivalent circuit is one that has
characteristics that are electrically the same as
another circuit but is generally simpler.

bridge. One way to Thevenize the bridge is to create two
Thevenin circuits from A to ground and from B to ground.

Troubleshooting
The effective troubleshooter must think logically about
circuit operation.
Understand normal circuit operation and
find out the symptoms of the failure.
Decide on a logical set of steps to find the
fault.
Following the steps in the plan, make

Modify the plan if necessary.

Troubleshooting
The output of the voltage-
divider is 6.0 V. Describe how
you would use analysis and
planning in finding the fault.
From an earlier calculation, V
3
should equal 8.10 V. A low
voltage is most likely caused by a low source voltage or
incorrect resistors (possibly R
1
and R
2
reversed). If the circuit is
new, incorrect components are possible.
Decide on a logical set of steps to locate the fault. You could
decide to 1) check the source voltage, 2) disconnect the load and
check the output voltage, and if it is correct, 3) check the load
resistance. If R
3
is correct, check other resistors.
