EXPERIMENT 7: VERIFICATION OF THEVENIN AND
NORTON THEOREMS AND MAXIMUM POWER TRANSFER

1.

Objectives

To verify

the practical usage of Thevenin and Norton Theorems.

To verify maximum power transfer theorem.

2.

Preliminary work

For the below given circuit,
find
I
L

, V
th

(Thevenin Voltage
source)
, R
th

(Thevenin OR Norton Resistor)

and I
N

(Norton Current source)
.

Repeat previous step by proteus simulation
.

o

Draw the load resistance power with respect to R
L

as a parameter.

Work out report questi
ons in advance, some of these questions will
probably
in LAB quiz.

Procedure

1.

Set up the circuit given below.

2.

Measure I
L

Fill this value in
the result

table given belo
w.

3.

Measure the
open circuit
voltage across
a

and
b

terminals
(V
ab
=V
th
)
.

Fill this value in
the
result

table given below.

4.

Then measure short
-
circuit current across
a

and
b

terminals
. Note that this current is the
Norton current (
I
N
).

Fill this value in
the
result

table given below.

5.

Now disconnect voltage sources from the circuit and replace them with short circuit. For
this state
,

measure the net resistance across
a

and
b
. Note that this value is the Thevenin (or
Norton) Resistance
(R
TH

)

across
a

and
b
.

Fil
l this value in the result table given below.
