In this course, you will learn about the types of network theorems used in circuit analysis, as well as the implication of linearity properties in circuits. The application of the superposition theorem and the concept of duality in electrical circuits will also be covered in this course. Then, this course will teach you how to derive the equations for Thevenin's theorem, as well as show examples of Thevenin's theorem with dependent sources.
Then, this course will also teach you about the derivation steps for Norton's theorem and solve examples of Norton's theorem with independent sources. The course will also teach you about how to derive the maximum power transfer theorem and its application in circuit analysis. Lastly, this course will teach you how to derive the equivalent circuits for the Thevenin and Norton theorems.
This course is helpful for learners who want to understand the principles of the network theorems used in circuit analysis. Learners can also gain a good understanding of how to derive the theorems used in carrying out circuit analysis. Begin this course now to learn how the equivalent circuits for the Thevenin and Norton's theorems are derived and applied in electrical circuits.Start Course Now
