2 esson 8 evenin s and Norton s theorems in the context of dc voltage and current sources acting in a resistive network
3 Objectives To understand the basic philosophy behind the evenin s theorem and its application to solve dc circuits. Explain the advantage of evenin s theorem over conventional circuit reduction techniques in situations where load changes. Maximum power transfer theorem and power transfer efficiency. Use Norton s theorem for analysis of dc circuits and study the advantage of this theorem over conventional circuit reduction techniques in situations where load changes..8.1 Introduction A simple circuit as shown in fig.8.1 is considered to illustrate the concept of equivalent circuit and it is always possible to view even a very complicated circuit in terms of much simpler equivalent source and load circuits. Subsequently the reduction of computational complexity that involves in solving the current through a branch for different values of load resistance ( R ) is also discussed. In many applications, a network may contain a variable component or element while other elements in the circuit are kept constant. If the solution for current ( I ) or voltage (V ) or power ( P ) in any component of network is desired, in such cases the whole circuit need to be analyzed each time with the change in component value. In order to avoid such repeated computation, it is desirable to introduce a method that will not have to be repeated for each value of variable component. Such tedious computation burden can be avoided provided the fixed part of such networks could be converted into a very simple equivalent circuit that represents either in the form of practical voltage source known as evenin s voltage source ( V = magnitude of voltage source, R = int ernal resis tan ce of the source ) or in the form of practical current source known as Norton s current source ( I N = magnitude of current source, RN = int ernal resis tan ce of current source ). In true sense, this conversion will considerably simplify the analysis while the load resistance changes. Although the conversion technique accomplishes the same goal, it has certain advantages over the techniques that we have learnt in earlier lessons. et us consider the circuit shown in fig. 8.1(a). Our problem is to find a current through R using different techniques; the following observations are made.
4 Find Mesh current method needs 3 equations to be solved Node voltage method requires 2 equations to be solved Superposition method requires a complete solution through load resistance ( R ) by considering each independent source at a time and replacing other sources by their internal source resistances. Suppose, if the value of R is changed then the three (mesh current method) or two equations (node voltage method) need to be solved again to find the new current in R. Similarly, in case of superposition theorem each time the load resistance R is changed, the entire circuit has to be analyzed all over again. Much of the tedious mathematical work can be avoided if the fixed part of circuit (fig. 8.1(a)) or in other words, the circuit contained inside the imaginary fence or black box with two terminals A & B, is replaced by the simple equivalent voltage source (as shown in fig. 8.1(b)) or current source (as shown in fig.8.1(c)).
5 evenin s eorem: evenin s theorem states that any two output terminals ( A & B, shown in fig. 8.2.(a)) of an active linear network containing independent sources (it includes voltage and current sources) can be replaced by a simple voltage source of magnitude V in series with a single resistor R (see fig. 8.2(d)) where R is the equivalent resistance of the network when looking from the output terminals A & B with all sources (voltage and current) removed and replaced by their internal resistances (see fig. 8.2(c)) and the magnitude of V is equal to the open circuit voltage across the A & B terminals. (e proof of the theorem will be given in section- 8. 5).
6 .8.2 e procedure for applying evenin s theorem To find a current I through the load resistance R (as shown in fig. 8.2(a)) using evenin s theorem, the following steps are followed: Step-1: Disconnect the load resistance ( R ) from the circuit, as indicated in fig. 8.2(b). Step-2: Calculate the open-circuit voltage V TH (shown in fig.8.2(b)) at the load terminals ( A& B ) after disconnecting the load resistance ( R ). In general, one can apply any of the techniques (mesh-current, node-voltage and superposition method) learnt in earlier lessons to compute V (experimentally just measure the voltage across the load terminals using a voltmeter). Step-3: Redraw the circuit (fig. 8.2(b)) with each practical source replaced by its internal resistance as shown in fig.8.2(c). (note, voltage sources should be short-circuited (just remove them and replace with plain wire) and current sources should be open-circuited (just removed).
7 Step-4: ook backward into the resulting circuit from the load terminals ( A& B ), as suggested by the eye in fig..8.2(c). Calculate the resistance that would exist between the load terminals ( or equivalently one can think as if a voltage source is applied across the load terminals and then trace the current distribution through the circuit (fig.8.2 (c)) in order to calculate the resistance across the load terminals.) e resistance R is described in the statement of evenin s theorem. Once again, calculating this resistance may be a difficult task but one can try to use the standard circuit reduction technique or Y Δ or Δ Y transformation techniques. Step-5: Place R in series with V to form the evenin s equivalent circuit (replacing the imaginary fencing portion or fixed part of the circuit with an equivalent practical voltage source) as shown in fig. 8.2(d). Step-6: Reconnect the original load to the evenin voltage circuit as shown in fig.8.2(e); the load s voltage, current and power may be calculated by a simple arithmetic operation only.
8 V oad current I = R + R V Voltage across the load V = R = I R + R R (8.1) (8.2) Power absorbed by the load P = I 2 R (8.3) Remarks: (i) One great advantage of evenin s theorem over the normal circuit reduction technique or any other technique is this: once the evenin equivalent circuit has been formed, it can be reused in calculating load current ( I ), load voltage ( V ) and load power ( P ) for different loads using the equations (8.1)-(8.3). (ii) Fortunately, with help of this theorem one can find the choice of load resistance R that results in the maximum power transfer to the load. On the other hand, the effort necessary to solve this problem-using node or mesh analysis methods can be quite complex and tedious from computational point of view..8.3 Application of evenin s theorem Example:.8.1 For the circuit shown in fig.8.3(a), find the current through R = R = Ω resistor ( Ia b branch) using evenin s theorem & hence calculate the 2 1 V cg voltage across the current source ( ).
9 Solution: Step-1: Disconnect the load resistance R and redraw the circuit as shown in fig.8.3(b). Step-2: Apply any method (say node-voltage method) to calculate V. At node C: 2+ I + I = (3 Vc) (0 Vc) 2+ + Vc = 6volt 3 6 Now, the currents I1& I2 can easily be computed using the following expressions.
10 Va Vc 3 6 I1 = = = 1A (note, current I 1 is flowing from c to a ) V c 6 I2 = = = 1 A (note, current I 2 is flowing from c to g ) 6 6 Step-3: Redraw the circuit (fig.8.3(b) indicating the direction of currents in different branches. One can find the evenin s voltage V using KV around the closed path gabg (see fig.8.3.(c). V = V V = 3 2= 1volt ag bg Step-4: Replace all sources by their internal resistances. In this problem, voltage source has an internal resistance zero (0) (ideal voltage source) and it is short-circuited with a wire. On the other hand, the current source has an infinite internal resistance (ideal current source) and it is open-circuited (just remove the current source). evenin s resistance R of the fixed part of the circuit can be computed by looking at the load terminals a - b (see fig.8.3(d)).
11 ( ) ( ) R = R1+ R3 R4 = = 1.555Ω Step-5: Place R in series with V to form the evenin s equivalent circuit (a simple practical voltage source). Reconnect the original load resistance R = R2 = 1Ω to the evenin s equivalent circuit (note the polarity of a and b is to be considered carefully) as shown in fig.8.3(e). I = V Aatob ( ) R + R = = Step-6: e circuit shown in fig.8.3 (a) is redrawn to indicate different branch currents. Referring to fig.8.3 (f), one can calculate the voltage and voltage across the current source ( V cg ) using the following equations. V bg
12 V = V V = = 2.61 volt. bg ag ab 2.61 Ibg = = A ; Icb = = A 2 V = = 6.27 volt. cg Example-.8.2 For the circuit shown in fig.8.4 (a), find the current I through 6 Ω resistor using evenin s theorem. Solution: Step-1: Disconnect 6Ω from the terminals a and b and the corresponding circuit diagram is shown in fig..8.4 (b). Consider point g as ground potential and other voltages are measured with respect to this point.
13 Step-2: Apply any suitable method to find the evenin s voltage ( ) (or potential between the terminals a and b ). KV is applied around the closed path gcag to compute evenin s voltage I 4I 30= 0 I= 1A Now, V = 30+ 4= 34 volt; V = 2 3= 6volt. ag bg V = V = V V = 34 6= 28volt( note a is higher potential than b ) ab ag bg R Step-3: evenin s resistance can be found by replacing all sources by their internal resistances ( all voltage sources are short-circuited and current sources are just removed or open circuited) as shown in fig.8.4 (c). V R = ( 8 4) + 2= + 2 = = 4.666Ω 12 3 Step-4: evenin s equivalent circuit as shown in fig.8.4 (d) is now equivalently represents the original circuit (fig..8.4(a).
14 I = V A R + R = = Example-.8.3 e box shown in fig.8.5 (a) consists of independent dc sources and resistances. Measurements are taken by connecting an ammeter in series with the resistor R and the results are shown in table. R Table 10Ω 2 A 20Ω 1.5 A? 0.6 A Solution: e circuit shown in fig.8.5(a) can be replaced by an equivalent evenin s voltage source as shown in fig.8.5(b). e current flowing through the resistor R is expressed as I V I = R + R (8.4)
15 e following two equations are written from measurements recorded in table. V = 2 V 2R = 20 (8.5) R + 10 V = 1.5 V 1.5 R = 30 R + 20 Solving equations (8.5) and (8.6) we get, V = 60 volt; R = 20Ω e choice of R that yields current flowing the resistor is the equation (8.4). (8.6) 0.6 A can be obtained using V 60 I= = = 0.6 R= 80 Ω. R + R 20 + R.8.4 Maximum Power Transfer eorem In an electric circuit, the load receives electric energy via the supply sources and converts that energy into a useful form. e maximum allowable power receives by the load is always limited either by the heating effect (incase of resistive load) or by the other power conversion taking place in the load. e evenin and Norton models imply that the internal circuits within the source will necessarily dissipate some of power generated by the source. A logical question will arise in mind, how much power can be transferred to the load from the source under the most practical conditions? In other words, what is the value of load resistance that will absorbs the maximum power from the source? is is an important issue in many practical problems and it is discussed with a suitable example. et us consider an electric network as shown in fig.8.6(a), the problem is to find the choice of the resistance R so that the network delivers maximum power to the load or in other words what value of load resistance R will absorb the maximum amount of power from the network. is problem can be solved using nodal or mesh current analysis to obtain an expression for the power absorbed by R, then the derivative of this expression with respect to R will establish the condition under what circumstances the
16 maximum power transfer occurs. e effort required for such an approach can be quite tedious and complex. Fortunately, the network shown in fig..8.6(a) can be represented by an equivalent evenin s voltage source as shown in fig..8.6(b). In fig.8.6(b) a variable load resistance R is connected to an equivalent evenin circuit of original circuit(fig.8.6(a)). e current for any value of load resistance is V I = R + R en, the power delivered to the load is 2 2 V P= I R = R R + R e load power depends on both R and R ; however, R is constant for the equivalent evenin network. So power delivered by the equivalent evenin network to the load resistor is entirely depends on the value of R. To find the value of R that absorbs a maximum power from the evenin circuit, we differentiate P with respect to R. 2 dp( R ) 2 ( R + R ) 2 R ( R + R ) = V = 0 ( R ) R R = R = R dr ( R + R ) (8.7) For maximum power dissipation in the load, the condition given below must be satisfied 2 d P( R ) 2 dr R= R 2 V = < 0 8R is result is known as Matching the load or maximum power transfer occurs when the load resistance R matches the evenin s resistance of a given systems. Also, notice that under the condition of maximum power transfer, the load voltage is, by voltage division, one-half of the evenin voltage. e expression for maximum power dissipated to the load resistance is given by R
17 P max 2 2 V V R + 4 R= R = = R R R e total power delivered by the source 2 2 PT = I ( R + R) = 2 I R is means that the evenin voltage source itself dissipates as much power in its internal resistance R as the power absorbed by the load R. Efficiency under maximum power transfer condition is given by Efficiency 2 I R = 100 = 50% (8.8) 2 2 I R For a given circuit, V and R are fixed. By varying the load resistance R, the power delivered to the load varies as shown in fig.8.6(c). Remarks: e evenin equivalent circuit is useful in finding the maximum power that a linear circuit can deliver to a load. Example-.8.4 For the circuit shown in fig.8.7(a), find the value of R that absorbs maximum power from the circuit and the corresponding power under this condition.
18 Solution: oad resistance R is disconnected from the terminals a and b and the corresponding circuit diagram is drawn (see fig.8.7(b)). e above circuit is equivalently represented by a evenin circuit and the corresponding evenin voltage V and evenin resistance R are calculated by following the steps given below:
19 Now applying Super position theorem, one can find V (voltage across the a and b terminals, refer fig. 8.7(b)). Note any method (node or mesh analysis) can be applied to find V. Considering only 20v source only 20 From the above circuit the current through b-c branch = = 1 A (from b to a ) 20 whereas the voltage across the b-a branch v =1 10= 10 volt. ( b is higher potential than a ). v = 10volt ab Considering only 10v source only ba
20 Note: No current is flowing through cb -branch. V ab = 5v ( a is higher potential than b ) Consider only 2 A current source only Note that the current flowing the c-a branch is zero V ab =10 v ( a is higher potential than b point). e voltage across the a and b terminals due to the all sources = V = V ab (due to 20v) + V ab (due to 10v) + V ab (due to 2A source) = = 5v (a is higher potential than the point b ). To computute R : Replace all voltage and current sources by their internal resistance of the circuit shown in fig.8.7(b).
21 R = R ab = ((5+5) 10) + (10 10) = = 10 Ω evenin equivalent circuit is drawn below: e choice of R that absorbs maximum power from the circuit is equal to the value of evenin resistance R R = R = 10Ω Under this condition, the maximum power dissipated to R is 2 1 V 1 25 P max = = = watts. 4R Proof of evenin eorem e basic concept of this theorem and its proof are based on the principle of superposition theorem. et us consider a linear system in fig..8.8(a).
22 It is assumed that the dc resistive network is excited by the independent voltage and current sources. In general, there will be certain potential difference ( Voc = V ) between the terminals a and b when the load resistance R is disconnected from the terminals. Fig.8.8(b) shows an additional voltage source E (ideal) is connected in series with the load resistance R in such a way ( polarity of external voltage source E in opposition the open-circuit voltage V oc across a and b terminals) so that the combined effect of all internal and external sources results zero current through the load resistance R. According to the principle of superposition, zero current flowing through R can be considered as a algebraic sum (considering direction of currents through R ) of (i) current through R due to the external source E only while all other internal sources are replaced by their internal resistances (all voltage sources are short-circuited and all current sources are open circuited), and (ii) current through R due to the combined effect of all internal sources while the external source E is shorted with a wire. For the first case, assume the E current I1 = R + R (due to external source E only) is flowing through R from right to left direction( ) as shown in fig.8.8(c).
23 For the second case, the current I 2 (due to combined effect of all internal sources only) is flowing through R with same magnitude of I 1 but in opposite direction (left to right). Note that the resultant current I through the resistor R is zero due to the combination of internal and external sources (see fig.8.8(b)). is situation will arise provided the voltage ( ) across the a and b terminals is exactly same (with same polarity) as that V ab of external voltage E and this further implies that the voltage across V is nothing but an open-circuit voltage ( V ) while the load resistance R is disconnected from the terminals a and b. With the logics as stated above, one can find the current V expression I 2 = R + R for the circuit (fig.8.8(b)) when the external source E is shortcircuited with a wire. In other words, the original circuit (fig.8.8(a)) can be replaced by an equivalent circuit that delivers the same amount of current I through R. Fig.8.8(d) shows the equivalent evenin circuit of the original network (fig.8.8(a)). ab
24 .8.6 Norton s theorem Norton s theorem states that any two terminals A & B of a network composed of linear resistances (see fig.8.9(a)) and independent sources (voltage or current, combination of voltage and current sources) may be replaced by an equivalent current source and a parallel resistance. e magnitude of current source is the current measured in the short circuit placed across the terminal pair A & B. e parallel resistance is the equivalent resistance looking into the terminal pair A & B with all independent sources has been replaced by their internal resistances. Any linear dc circuit, no matter how complicated, can also be replaced by an equivalent circuit consisting of one dc current source in parallel with one resistance. Precisely, Norton s theorem is a dual of evenin s theorem. To find a current I through the load resistance R (as shown in fig.8.9(a)) using Norton s theorem, the following steps are followed: Step-1: Short the output terminal after disconnecting the load resistance ( R ) from the terminals A & B and then calculate the short circuit current (as shown in fig.8.9(b)). In general, one can apply any of the techniques (mesh-current, node-voltage and superposition method) learnt in earlier lessons to compute I N (experimentally just measure the short-circuit current using an ammeter). I N Step-2: Redraw the circuit with each practical sources replaced by its internal resistance while the short circuit across the output terminals removed (note: voltage sources should be short-circuited (just replace with plain wire) and current sources should be open-
25 circuited (just removed)). ook backward into the resulting circuit from the load terminals ( A& B ), as suggested by the eye in fig.8.9(c). Step-3: Calculate the resistance that would exist between the load terminals A & B ( or equivalently one can think as if a voltage source is applied across the load terminals and then trace the current distribution through the circuit (fig.8.9(c)) in order to calculate the resistance across the load terminals). is resistance is denoted as R N, is shown in fig.8.9 (d). Once again, calculating this resistance may be a difficult task but one can try to use the standard circuit reduction technique or Y Δ or Δ Y transformation techniques. It may be noted that the value of Norton s resistance resistance R in a circuit. R N is truly same as that of evenin s Step-4: Place RN in parallel with current IN to form the Norton s equivalent circuit (replacing the imaginary fencing portion or fixed part of the circuit with an equivalent practical current source) as shown in fig.8.8 (d). Step-5: Reconnect the original load to the Norton current circuit; the load s voltage, current and power may be calculated by a simple arithmetic operation only. RN oad current I = I N (8.9) R + R N Voltage across the load V = I R (8.10)
26 Power absorbed by the load P = I 2 R (8.11) Remarks: (i) Similar to the evenin s theorem, Norton s theorem has also a similar advantage over the normal circuit reduction technique or any other technique when it is used to calculate load current ( I ), load voltage ( V ) and load power ( P ) for different loads. (ii)fortunately, with help of either Norton s theorem or evenin s theorem one can find the choice of load resistance R that results in the maximum power transfer to the load. (iii) Norton s current source may be replaced by an equivalent evenin s voltage source as shown in fig..8.1(b). e magnitude of voltage source ( V ) and its internal resistances ( ) are expressed by the following relations R V = IN RN ; R = RN ( with proper polarities at the terminals) In other words, a source transformation converts a evenin equivalent circuit into a Norton equivalent circuit or vice-verse..8.7 Application of Norton s eorem Example-.8.5 For the circuit shown in fig.8.10(a), find the current through R = R2 = 1Ω resistor ( Ia b branch) using Norton s theorem & hence calculate the voltage across the current source ( ). V cg Solution: Step-1: Remove the resistor through which the current is to be found and short the terminals a and b (see fig.8.10(b)).
27 Step-2: Any method can be adopted to compute the current flowing through the a-b branch. Here, we apply mesh current method. oop-1 3 R 4 (I 1 I 2 ) = 0, where I 2 = - 2A R 4 I 1 = 3 + R 4 I 2 = = - 1 I 1 = - 0.5A oop-3 - R1I3-R 3(I3-I 2)=0-3I3-4(I 3+ 2) = 0-7I3-8 = 0 8 I 3 =- = I N =(I1-I 3)= = = A (current is flowing from a to b ) 14 Step-3: To compute R N, all sources are replaced with their internal resistances. e equivalent resistance between a and b terminals is same as the value of evenin s resistance of the circuit shown in fig.8.3(d).
28 Step-4: Replace the original circuit with an equivalent Norton s circuit as shown in fig.8.10(d). R N I = I N = = 0.39A (a to b) R N + R In order to calculate the voltage across the current source the following procedures are adopted. Redraw the original circuit indicating the current direction in the load.

Solution: First measurement implies the evenin s voltage ( V ) across the terminals a and b = V. Second measurement implies the Norton s current ( ) through the shorted terminals a and b = ma. With the above two measurements one can find out the evenin s resistance R ( = R ) using the following relation N V R = = = 4.74kΩ 3 I N evenin equivalent circuit between the terminals a and b of the original circuit is shown in fig.8.11(b). I N ird measurement shows that the current in resistor R is given by = ( ma) R R = 5k Ω. e voltage across the 5k Ω resistor is = 0.54volt

R Example-.8.7 Applying Norton s theorem, calculate the value of R that results in maximum power transfer to the 6.2Ω resistor in fig.8.12(a). Find the maximum power dissipated by the resistor 6.2Ω under that situation.

From the circuit diagram fig.8.12(c), the Norton s resistance is obtained between the terminals a and b. 3R RN = ( R 3) + 5 = + 5 (8.15) 3 + R Note that the maximum power will dissipate in load resistance when load resistance = Norton s resistance RN = R= 6.2Ω. To satisfy this condition the value of the resistance R can be obtained from equation (8.15), we get R = 2 Ω.. e circuit shown in fig.8.12(a) is now replaced by an equivalent Norton s current source (as shown in fig..8.12(d)) and the maximum power delivered by the given network to the load R = 6.2Ω is thus given by
