    What have you tried? What's your approach? Is Vs an AC source?

    i have tried taking the steps to find the norton source:
    i have shorted the load (Z) and want to check what current is Iab.
    tried some KVL,KCL but with no success to get somthing...

    The circuit would appear to be amenable to mesh analysis. Solve for the current IL. Set the value of ZL in the resulting equation to determine the short circuit current and the open circuit voltage.
