Norton Transform on a Wheatstone Bridge

  1. Aug 11, 2011 #1
    I have been trying to find the norton equivalent of a wheatstone bridge with the "bridge" resistor as a the load. The Bridge is unbalanced.

    How do i find the current through the load when it is shorted to find the norton current?
    It seems easy , but i havent found any ways of doing it.

    I dont want to do a thevenin transform and then nortonize it.
    I'm interested in knowing how to nortonize it from scratch.

    Any help ?
