LECTURE 14

• Today:
• Summary of Linear and Nonlinear Rules
• Load-line graphical method for circuits with nonlinear elements
• Three terminal devices, solution methods and power
S. Ross and W. G. Oldham

Reduce or eliminate:

• Over-focusing on policy and grades
• Better off devoting energy towards understanding
• Perfectionism
• Don’t expect perfection of yourself or your instructors
• Competition
• Cooperation, helping others benefits you too

Big don’ts for success at school and at work

Circuit Laws and Tricks

• Linear Circuits:
• KCL, KVL
• Nodal Analysis
• Thévenin and Norton equivalents
• Nonlinear Circuits:
• KCL, KVL
• Nodal Analysis
• Special Graphical Technique for Circuits containing linear and nonlinear elements (Load-line Method):
• Combine all linear parts into a simple Thévenin equivalent Circuit attached to the nonlinear element.
• Plot the I-V Characteristics of NLE and Thévenin circuit on same axes, recognizing the intersection as the solution.

We have a circuit containing a two-terminal non-linear element “NLE”, and some linear components.

First replace the entire linear part of the circuit by its Thevenin equivalent.

Then define I and V at the NLE terminals (typically associated signs)

Given the graphical properties of two terminal non-linear circuit (i.e. the graph of a two terminal device)

And have this connected to a linear (Thévenin) circuit

Whose I-V can also be graphed on the same axes (“load line”)

Application of KCL, KVL gives circuit solution

The method is graphical, and therefore approximate

But if we use equations instead of graphs, it could be accurate

It can also be use to find solutions to circuits with three terminal nonlinear devices (like transistors)

Three-Terminal Devices

With three terminals we have four independent variables (two voltages and two currents)

We can set one variable at each terminal and the I-V behavior of the device will determine the value of the two unknowns.

For example apply a VGS and VDS, then measure IG and ID.

Similarly we could apply a fixed VGS and IG and plot the two-terminal characteristic ID versus VDS.

Three-Terminal Parametric Graphs

Concept of 3-Terminal Parametric Graphs:

We set a voltage (or current) at one set of terminals (here we will apply a fixed VGS, IG=0)

and conceptually draw a box around the device with only two terminals emerging so we can again plot the two-terminal characteristic (here ID versus VDS).

But we can do this for a variety of values of VGS with the result that we get a family of curves.

Graphical Solutions for 3-Terminal Devices

We can only find a solution for one input (VGS) at at time:

First select VGS (e.g. 2V) and draw ID vs VDS for the 3-Terminal device.

Now draw ID vs VDS for the 2V - 200KW Thevenin source.

The only point on the I vs V plane which obeys KCL and KVL is ID = 5mA at VDS = 1V.

3-Terminal Device

S

With three terminals we have two independent measures of power (e.g. one at GS and one at DS).

We can set any two variables and the I-V behavior of the device will determine the value of the other two.

Defining all currents as inward, the power dissipated is simply the algebraic sum of VGS IG and VDS ID, i. e.,

P (in) = VGS IG + VDS ID .

See the textbook, p. 117 for more generality.
