EXPERIMENT #1
Thevenin’s Theorem
Objective:
To verify Thevenin’s theorem in a dc network.

Apparatus:

DC Power Supply (0-30V)
Multimeter
Resistors: 1k, 3k, 6.2k.

Circuit Diagram:

Theory:
Thevenin's Theorem is used to simplify the analysis of complex network into a
standard equivalent network. Suppose that a complex network consists of number of sources
and resistors connected in any manner, then according to this theorem,
“Any network can be replaced by a single source Vth in series with a single resistance Rth.”
Vth or Voc is the open-circuit voltage across the terminals A and B i.e. find the voltage
that the network produces across the two terminals with an open-circuit between A and B.
This voltage is called the Thevenin Equivalent Voltage. Rth is the open-circuit resistance
across the terminals A and B but with all the sources killed in the network. This resistance is
called the Thevenin Equivalent Resistance. For Rth, voltage sources are replaced by short
circuit and current sources are replaced by open circuit.

Perform the calculations for both the actual circuit and its Thevenin equivalent. Procedure: 1. 4. They should agree closely with those in the adjacent columns. 3. Observations and Calculations: Thevenin Parameters Calculated Vth Rth Measured Vth Rth . 5. 6. and measure the resistance between the terminals A and B. use Thevenin’s theorem to calculate the values of Vth and Rth and record them in table. For the circuit as shown in fig. Record this as Rth. Measure the resulting load current and record them. Connect a 3k load to the terminals A and B. Connect a 3k load to the terminal A and B of the circuit in a fig a. The result should be identical VL = RL RL + Rth . IL = Vth RL + Rth . Calculate the voltage across and current through a 3k load that is to be placed across the terminals A and B. Although Thevenin Equivalent circuit is not the same as its original network. it acts as same in terms of the output voltage and current. Rth = R3 + R1 x R2 R1 + R2 2. Construct the circuit of fig b with the calculated values of Vth and Rth. Replace the source with a short circuit. Measure the open circuit voltage and record this as Vth under the measured column. This condition is called the “Terminal Equivalency” from the viewpoint of the Two Output Terminals. Vth = R2 R1 + R2 .

Procedure:       For the components used in the circuit. there is large output and that set of frequencies are passed to the output. dropping it across resistor R1 and preventing its passage on to the load. Vary the frequency. the circuit-Q and bandwidth of the circuit. Corner Frequency Because a real filter rolls off gradually. its very low impedance shorts out the signal.707) of that in the pass band. adjust V in to some convenient value. Calculate.

Three distinct cases emerge depending upon the relative magnitude of α and ωo.ωo 2 where the resonant frequency (in radians/second) is ωo = 1 √ LC and the damping rate (in nepers/second) is α =R 2L Response of Second Order Circuits The response of a second order circuit will be of the general form V (t) = A e S1t + B e S2t where s1 and s2 are the roots to the characteristic equation above.2 = . 50 .Circuit analysis and design (EE-110) d2I + R dI + 1 I(t) dt L dt LC put d = s dt Lab Manual = 0 then characteristic equation is given as follows: s2+R s + 1 L LC =0 The roots of the characteristic equation can be expressed as S 1.

This is called "over damping" If Critical Damping α = ωo In this case. the characteristic polynomial's solutions are identical negative real numbers. This is called "critical damping": If Under Damping α < ωo In this case. the characteristic polynomial's solutions are complex conjugate and have negative real part.
