Homework Help: Norton's Equivalent Circuit

  1. May 1, 2014 #1
    Finding the Norton Equivalent circuit for the circuit attached

    I attempted this solution but i am unsure if my Norton's current is correct:

    [itex]R_N = \frac{1}{\frac{1}{6}+\frac{1}{12}+\frac{1}{12}}=3ohms[/itex]

    [itex]I'_N = \frac{12*2}{12+4}=1.5A, I''_N = 2A[/itex]

    [itex]I_N = 2A - 1.5A = 0.5A[/itex]

    Can you explain the logic behind your Norton current calculations? In particular, what motivates your calculation of ##I'_N## ?
