Homework Help: Norton and Thevenin equivalents disagreement?

  1. Oct 13, 2012 #1

    When I solve for Isc through a and b using Norton and Thevenin equivalents between c and d I get different results. Why is that?

    Norton =0.5mA
    Thevenin =2mA

    In the third diagram, the source you've labelled as Vx is not the same as VCD. It's VCD which is the reference voltage for the controlled voltage source.

    Thank you so much! So that's where I went wrong...
