2 Combination circuits Most practical circuits have combinations of series and parallel components. You can frequently simplify analysis by combining series and parallel components. 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.

3 Combination circuits For example: R1 1.0 k R k is equivalent to R k There are no electrical measurements that can distinguish the boxes.

4 Combination circuits Another example: is equivalent to R1 R2 1.0 k 1.0 k R 1,2 500 There are no electrical measurements that can distinguish the boxes.

5 is equivalent to R1 1.0 k R k R k R 3.7 k 1,2 3 R 4.7 k is equivalent to R 1,2, k There are no electrical measurements that can distinguish between the three boxes.

6 Combination circuits Kirchhoff s voltage law and Kirchhoff s current law can be applied to any circuit, including combination circuits. For example, applying KVL, the path shown will have a sum of 0 V. 0 VR 2 VR4 VR5 VR V 0.417V V S 5.0 V Start/Finish V S 0.417V 0.417V R V R V R R V R V R V

7 Combination circuits Kirchhoff s voltage law and Kirchhoff s current law can be applied to any circuit, including combination circuits. So will this path! 0 VR 2 VR V V S 1.25V V S 5.0 V 5V + - St a rt/finish R R V 1.25V R V R R R 5 100

8 Kirchoff s current law can also be applied to the same circuit. What are the readings for node A? V S 5.0 V + I ma I I T = I R1 + I R2 R1 A V R S 1 I ma 5V 270 I ma R I R2 R R 3 R 2 5V VS [ R3 ( R4 R5 R6)] 5V 470 [ ] R R 6 8.0mA R V

9 Combination circuit V S + 10 V R 2 R R 3 Tabulating current, resistance, voltage and power is a useful way to summarize parameters. Solve for the unknown quantities in the circuit shown. I 1 = 21.6 ma R 1 = 270 V 1 = 5.82 V P 1 = 126 mw I 2 = 12.7 ma R 2 = 330 V 2 = 4.18 V P 2 = 53.1 mw I 3 = 8.9 ma R 3 = 470 V 3 = 4.18 V P 3 = 37.2 mw I T = 21.6 ma R T = 464 V S = 10 V P T = 216 mw

10 Kirchhoff s laws can be applied as a check on the answer. V S + 10 V R 2 R R 3 Notice that the current in R 1 is equal to the sum of the branch currents in R 2 and R 3. The sum of the voltages around the outside loop is zero. I 1 = 21.6 ma R 1 = 270 V 1 = 5.82 V P 1 = 126 mw I 2 = 12.7 ma R 2 = 330 V 2 = 4.18 V P 2 = 53.1 mw I 3 = 8.9 ma R 3 = 470 V 3 = 4.18 V P 3 = 37.2 mw I T = 21.6 ma R T = 464 V S = 10 V P T = 216 mw

11 Loading effect of a voltmeter V S + 10 V Assume V S = 10 V, but the meter reads only 4.04 V when it is across either R 1 or R 2. Can you explain what is happening? R k R 2 47k All measurements affect the quantity being measured. A voltmeter has internal resistance, which can change the resistance of the circuit under test. In this case, a 1 M internal resistance of the meter accounts for the readings V V

12 Loading effect on Voltage-dividers I Bleeder is the leftover current that flows in the divider after splitting through the load(s) k If R L = 1kΩ, then V OUT = 10V V 3.33 I R1 = I R2 + I RL I T IT I T 5V I T I R2 = I Bleeder I RL

13 Loading effect on Voltage-dividers As R L increases, less load current is drawn from the divider, larger percentage of I T flows through R 2, V OUT approaches maximum value. As R L decrease, more load current is drawn from the divider, smaller percentage of I T flows through R 2, V OUT approaches 0V. V OUT = Maximum V OUT = Approaches 0V V OUT = Approaches Maximum

26 Voltage-divider with Positive and Negative Voltage Taps

27 Wheatstone bridge The Wheatstone bridge consists of four resistive arms forming two voltage dividers and a dc voltage source. The output is taken between the dividers. Frequently, one of the bridge resistors is adjustable. When the bridge is balanced, the output voltage is zero, and the products of resistances in the opposite diagonal arms are equal.
