Homework Help: Finding Thevenins equivlant using his thereom and nortons

  1. Oct 14, 2007 #1
    Hi there,
    See attached for original circuit.

    Basically I need to find thevenins equivalent of the network.

    My attempt:-
    To find the resistor equivalent
    First of all I replaced all voltage sources with shorts, and replaced all current sources with open circuits.

    This left me with 16 ohm (10+6),24 ohm and, 1.777 all in parallel.

    The sum of the resistors gives the equivalent resistance of 1.499 ohm.

    Now this is the part where I don't know what to do next. Do I convert the circuit so the sources are voltage sources?

    Any help or guidance most appreciated

    Any guidance much appreciated!

    Hi, I suggest that you do the transformation so all the voltage sources and current sources can be unite into one. This is just a suggestion.Please correct me if I'm wrong. Thank you!

    You need to find the open-circuit voltage across A and B with all the sources activated. This will be the Thevenin equivalent voltage.

    I believe using source transformations would have also worked...
