Lecture 7 linear dependent sources

Lecture 7: Linear Dependent Sources

Today we will look at special voltage and current sources called dependent sources.

A dependent source has a voltage or current that depends on a different voltage or current somewhere in the circuit (or even in a different, detached circuit).

Voltage-controlled voltage source … V = Av Vc

Current-controlled voltage source … V = Rm Ic

Current-controlled current source … I = Ai Ic

Voltage-controlled current source … I = Gm Vc


Analyzing circuits with linear dependent sources

Analyzing Circuits with Linear Dependent Sources

  • Circuits with linear dependent sources can be analyzed using the tools we have learned so far.

  • A dependent voltage source acts like an independent ideal voltage source: it tells us what its voltage is, but the current is unknown.

  • Similarly, a dependent current source tells us what its current is, but the voltage is unknown.

  • We just need to write an extra equation that specifies what the controlling voltage or current is.


Example

Example

Find VR.

  • By Ohm’s law, VR = (R3)(G VX)

  • Extra equation specifying VX:

Linearity of i v relationship

Linearity of I-V Relationship

  • Whenever a circuit is composed only of the elements we have studied so far,

    • Ideal Independent Voltage and Current Sources

    • Linear Dependent Voltage and Current Sources

    • Resistors

      the I-V relationship is always a line. Simple examples:

  • Consider the simple circuit composed of a voltage source and resistor.

  • This circuit has a linear I-V relationship:

    I = (V – VS) / RI = (1/R) V – VS / R

  • With proper choice of VS and R, this circuit can mimic any other circuit we have studied so far.
