UNIT-1 CIRCUIT ANALYSIS TECHNIQUES PART-A1. Define current & voltage?The flow of free electrons in a metal is electric current and its unit measure is in amperes. The ability of the charged body to do work is called as electric potential and unit is volts.

2. State ohms law.The ratio of potential difference b/w any two points of a conductor to the current flowing, provided the physical conditions do not change.

3. State the limitations of ohms law. Doesnt apply to non metallic conductors. Doesnt apply to non linear devices.

4. State Kirchhoffs voltage law.The algebraic sum of the potential around a closed loop is zero

5. State two salient points for series combinations. The current is same to all the elements The total resistance is greater than the greatest resistance in the circuit

6. State Super position theorem.The Responses in circuit in multiple source is given by the algebraic sum of the responses due to the individual sources acting alone

7. State Thevenins theorem.Any linear network with output terminal can be replaced by a single voltage source in series with the impedance (Thevenin resistance)

8. State Nortons theorem.Any linear network with output terminal can be replaced by a single current source in parallel with impedance

9. When superposition theorem can be applied?When there are more than one source acting in a network. 2

10. Explain the uses of Thevenins theorem. Applicable to all linear circuits This Theorem is useful when it is desired to know the effect of responses in the network

v1 = 8.727V4. Using superposition theorem find the voltage drop across each resistor

Since we have two sources of power in this circuit, we will have to calculate two sets of values for voltage drops and/or currents, one for the circuit with only the 28 volt battery in effect.

and one for the circuit with only the 7 volt battery in effect:

When re-drawing the circuit for series/parallel analysis with one source, all other voltage sources are replaced by wires (shorts), and all current sources with open circuits (breaks). Since we only have voltage sources (batteries) in our example circuit, we will replace every inactive source during analysis with a wire. Analyzing the circuit with only the 28 volt battery, we obtain the following values for voltage and current:


Analyzing the circuit with only the 7 volt battery, we obtain another set of values for voltage and current:
