Ohm’s law: definition and more

Electrical engineering is incomplete without ohm’s law. It is the most basic building block of electrical engineering. So, you must understand ohms law in detail. Ohms law represents the relation between voltage, current, and resistance. A german physicist Georg ohm explained it in 1827. “ohms law” is named after the German physicist. Ohm’s law statement …

Maximum Power Transfer Theorem – Explanation & Applications

Maximum power transfer theorem or in short you can call it the MPT theorem is known for analyzing maximum power transferred at the load. This theorem is commonly used in electrical and electronic engineering where at load the power required is high. For example in electronics engineering and communication engineering maximum power transfer theorem is …

Current Divider And Voltage Divider Rule

In-circuit analysis the current divider and voltage divider rule is one of the basic rules for easily determining a particular current or voltage across the circuit. Apart from Kirchhoff’s circuit law, this rule is also most commonly used for obtaining current and voltages. Current divider rule As you know that in parallel circuits the current …

Superposition theorem

The superposition theorem is important in circuit analysis as the theorem helps to easily obtain the current or voltage in any branch by any source applied in the circuit. Superposition theorem is used when we have to determine the current in any particular branch of a circuit consisting of voltage or current sources. This theorem helps …

Kirchhoff’s Circuit Law

Kirchhoff’s circuit law is the basic law in the circuit analysis field. In 1845 a german physicist Gustav Robert Kirchhoff was the first to develop formulas for governing the behavior of an electrical circuit. He gave two laws : The first law is known as Kirchhoff’s current law which is also known as first law …

Norton theorem – Statement with step by step explanation

In the previous article, we discussed one of the network\circuit analysis theorem the Thevenin theorem which is very similar to the Norton Theorem. As You can see that the above figure is very similar to Thevenin’s network similarly both Thevenin theorem and Norton Theorem are similar. But the difference is in Norton’s equivalent circuit consists …

What is Thevenin’s theorem? – statement and explanation

In this article, we will take a look at one of the common circuit analysis theorems the Thevenin theorem. Thevenin theorem is considered a very effective theorem for solving circuit problems similar to Norton theorem. Using the Thevenin theorem, any circuit can be reduced to Thevenin equivalent circuit.  Thevenin theorem statement Thevenin’s Theorem: It states …
