- Solve linear circuits problem using Norton’s Theorem.
It is possible to reduce a complex circuit to a single current source and parallel resistance connected to a load.Steps:
- Remove the load resistor RL or component concerned and short circuit the terminals. Find IN on the output terminals A and B.
- Short-circuit the two voltage sources and open circuit terminals A and B, the two resistors are now connected together in parallel. Find RN.
- Having found both the short circuit current, IN and equivalent internal resistance, RN. Draw the Nortons equivalent.
- Replace the original load resistor (remove resistor) connected across terminals A and B and calculate current, I.
A two terminal network is connected to a resistive load whose resistance is equal to Norton resistance of the network. What will be the load current if Norton current is I$_n$? (DSSSB JE EE Nov 2019)
