Chapter 12. Thevenin, Norton and Maximum Power Transfer Theorems. Thevenin’s Theorem. Why Thevenin’s Theorem is useful. What is Thevenin’s Theorem?.
Thevenin, Norton and Maximum Power Transfer Theorems
Write these on white board
RTH = 5kΩ
VTH = 10V
Now you can place any load in the circuit you want and the calculations are EASY!
Solving for VTH
VTH = VA – VB = 5V
What is the resistance from point a to b?

Solve for VL using traditional Ohm’s Law technique, Mesh Analysis, and Thevenin Analysis
What circuit analysis technique can we use to solve for this?
Thevenin’s Theorem. RTH = 5kΩ
I’ve checked this technique using Ohm’s law and it works. See following numbers:
5mW @ 5kOhm
4.94mW @ 4kOhm
4.96mW @ 6kOhm
