- about the existence of implicit representation for a linear 2-port network

Hi,

in the context of linear two-ports networks my (italian) textbook says that if its internal structure consists of passive one-port components with no independent current/voltage generators then the following (implicit) linear equations based representation always exist:

##\left[A\right] V + \left[B\right] I = 0## where ##V## is the column vector of port voltages and ##I## that of port currents

Now, if we take in account just only resistors as passive one-port components than the reason behind is clear: just close the 2-port network with 2 resistor and apply the Tellegen theorem to the overall circuit. All voltages and currents have to be null so the complete set of linear equations have to be linear independent, thus by elimination the two linear equations representing the 2-port network are independent themselves.

On the other hand, what if we include (voltage and/or current) controlled generators as one-port component inside the internal structure of the 2-port network ? Starting from the complete set of linear equations can we always obtain that linear representation by elimination ?
