## Can we use source transformation in Thevenin Theorem?

You can use the Thévenin approach for circuits that have multiple independent sources. In some cases, you can use source transformation techniques to find the Thévenin resistor RT without actually computing voc and isc.

**What is source transformation theorem?**

Source transformation is the process of simplifying a circuit solution, especially with mixed sources, by transforming voltage sources into current sources, and vice versa, using Thévenin’s theorem and Norton’s theorem respectively.

**CAN YOU DO source transformation with dependent sources?**

Source transformation is applicable even for the circuits which have dependent sources.

### How Norton’s theorem is equivalent to Thevenin’s theorem?

Thevenin voltage is equal to Norton’s current times Norton resistance. Norton current is equal to Thevenin voltage divided by Thevenin resistance.

**What are independent voltage sources?**

An independent voltage/current source is an idealized circuit component that fixes the voltage or current in a branch, respectively, to a specified value. Remember that the state of a circuit is given by the voltage across and current through each branch of the circuit.

**How does Thevenin theorem work?**

Thevenin’s Theorem states that “Any linear circuit containing several voltages and resistances can be replaced by just one single voltage in series with a single resistance connected across the load“.

## How does Thevenin Theorem work?

**What is the importance of Thevenin’s Theorem?**

Thevenin’s Theorem provides an easy method for analyzing power circuits, which typically has a load that changes value during the analysis process. This theorem provides an efficient way to calculate the voltage and current flowing across a load without having to recalculate your entire circuit over again.

**Can we convert dependent current source to dependent voltage source?**

Yes, we can apply source transformation to dependant sources. Analysis of the circuit remains same as that of independent sources. While source transformation, dependent current source will be converted to dependent voltage source and vice versa.

### What is difference between Norton and Thevenin theorem?

Thevenin’s theorem states that we can replace all the electric circuit, except a load resistor, as an independent voltage source in series, and the load resistor response will be the same. The Norton’s theorem states that we can replace the electric circuit except the load resistor as a current source in parallel.
