By doctorj, on May 17th, 2009% Here we talk about analyzing a circuit using circuit reduction techniques. Calculation of equivalent resistance using series and parallel equivalence using an R2R example. In the example, the circuit is reduced to a single resistor and voltage source resulting in what is called a Thevenin equivalent. Some of the links in the post above are [...] . . . → Read More: DC Circuit Analysis – Circuit Reduction – Part 1
By doctorj, on April 22nd, 2009% This example analyzes a summing circuit using the Thevenin equivalent and superposition concepts. Here, voltage sources are tested one at a time to determine its contribution at the output or load. As a reminder, a voltage source is removed by shorting it out since an ideal voltage source has zero internal resistance. Some of the [...] . . . → Read More: Thevenin & Norton Examples – Thevenin Equivalent Circuit Theory – Part 6
By doctorj, on March 26th, 2009% Meshcurrent analysis is useful in circuits having many elements connected in series. We note that a loop forms a closed path by passing through an ordered sequence of nodes where no node is passed more than once. On the other hand, a mesh is a specialized looop that doesn’t enclose any elements. Some of the [...] . . . → Read More: Circuit Analysis – Mesh Current Analysis – Part 1
By doctorj, on March 17th, 2009% One of the most important circuit configurations you need to recognize is the series and parallel connection of circuit elements. The video will describe these special but frequent cases when applying the connection constraints, namely, Kirchoff’s Voltage Law (KVL) and Kirchoff’s Current Law (KCL). When circuit elements are connected in series, then each circuit element [...] . . . → Read More: Circuit Analysis – Series and Parallel Connection (Kirchoff’s Voltage and Current Laws)
