```Thevenin’s and Norton’s Equivalent Circuit Tutorial. (by Kim, Eung)
Thevenin's Theorem states that we can replace entire network by an equivalent circuit that
contains only an independent voltage source in series with an impedance (resistor) such that
the current-voltage relationship at the load is unchanged.
Norton's Thereom is identical to Thevenin's Theorem except that the equivalent circuit is an
independent current source in parallel with an impedance (resistor). Therefore, the Norton
equivalent circuit is a source transformation of the Thevenin equivalent circuit.

How to find Thevenin's Equivalent Circuit?
If the circuit contains
You should do
1) Connect an open circuit between a and b.
2) Find the voltage across the open circuit which is Voc.
Voc = Vth.
Resistors
and
independent sources
3) Deactivate the independent sources.
Voltage source Î open circuit
Current source Î short circuit
4) Find Rth by circuit resistance reduction
1) Connect an open circuit between a and b.
2) Find the voltage across the open circuit which is Voc.
Voc = Vth.
Resistors
and
dependent sources
or
independent shorces
If there are both dependent and independent sources.
3) Connect a short circuit between a and b.
4) Determine the current between a and b.
5) Rth = Voc / Iab
If there are only dependent sources.
3) Connect 1 Ampere current source flowing from
terminal b to a. It = 1 [A]
4) Then Rth = Voc / It = Voc / 1
Note: When there are only dependent sources, the equivalent network is merely RTh, that is, no
current or voltage sources.
