Thevenin and Norton

Thevenin’s theorem

Thevenin’s theorem says that any network can be represented by a voltage source and series resistance.

Norton’s theorem

Norton’s theorem says that the same network can be represented by a current source and shunt resistance.  In must be possible, therefore, to convert directly from a Thevenin form to a Norton form and vice versa. Such conversions are very useful in the world of electronics. So, here I will tell you the basic formulas which are used to make such type conversions.

Conversion Formulas:

Conversion in Thevenin from Norton:

RTH = RN

VTH = IN × RN

 

 Conversion in Norton from Thevenin:

RN = RTH

IN = VTH / RTH

  1. how to connect a voltage source and current source(PV) in parallel? | Uses of Solar Power - January 16, 2012

    [...] the two sources in such a way that the current get divided but the voltage remains the same….i have a PV solar panel and a dynamo .solar panel act as a current source and dynamo act as a voltag…ces in such a way that the current get divided but the voltage remains the same….
