Maximum Power Transfer Theorem for AC & DC Circuits

Maximum Power Transfer Theorem for AC & DC Circuits

Maximum Power Transfer Theorem for AC & DC Circuits Introduction to Maximum Power Transfer Theorem Very often we come across various real time circuits that works based on maximum power transfer theorem. For effective way of connecting source to load, an impedance matching transformer is used. In case of transmission lines, the distortion and reflections are avoided by making source …

Kirchhoff’s Current & Voltage Law (KCL & KVL) | Solved Example

Kirchhoff’s First & Second Laws with Solved Example A German Physicist “Robert Kirchhoff” introduced two important electrical laws in 1847 by which, we can easily find the equivalent resistance of a complex network and flowing currents in different conductors. Both AC and DC circuits can be solved and simplified by using these simple laws which is known as Kirchhoff’s Current …

What is a Solenoid and Solenoid Magnetic Field

What is a Solenoid and Solenoid Magnetic Field

What is a Solenoid and Solenoid Magnetic Field What is a Solenoid? Solenoid is an enamel wire (coil wire) wound on a round shaped, made of solid materials like Steel to generate a uniform magnetic field. It acts as an electromagnet, when electric current passes through it. It is also used to control the motion of objects such as control …

Arduino Programming: What is Arduino and How to Program it?

Arduino Programming: What is Auruino and How to Program it?Arduino UNO PIN & Components Labels

Arduino Programming: What is Arduino and How to Program it? What is Arduino? An Arduino is an open source hardware platform with built in programming support. No additional hardware or software (e.g. Hex burner) is required to transfer your programs (i.e. hex file) to the Arduin0. There are all the necessary peripherals attached for the basic operation. It is based …

What is the difference between AC and DC Resistance & How to calculate it?

Resistance The property of a substance or material which oppose the flow of electricity through it is called resistance OR, Resistance is the ability of a circuit or element (which is called resistor) to oppose current. Examples of Resistors with the ability of high resistance are Wood, Air, Mica, Glass, Rubber, Tungsten etc. Unit of Resistance is “Ohm” and it is …

Norton’s Theorem. Easy Step by Step Procedure with Example (Pictorial Views)

Norton's Theorem. Easy Step by Step Procedure with Examples and solved problems

Norton’s Theorem Easy Step by Step Procedure with Example (Pictorial Views) This is another useful theorem to analyze electric circuits like Thevenin’s Theorem, which reduces linear, active circuits and complex networks into a simple equivalent circuit. The main difference between Thevenin’s theorem and Norton’s theorem is that, Thevenin’s theorem provides an equivalent voltage source and an equivalent series resistance, while …

Thevenin’s Theorem. Easy Step by Step Procedure with Example (Pictorial Views)

Thevenin's Theorem. Easy Step by Step Procedure with Example (Pictorial Views)

Thevenin’s Theorem Step by Step Procedure with Examples. A French Engineer, M.L Thevenin , made one of these quantum leaps in 1893. Thevenin’s Theorem is not by itself an analysis tool, but the basis for a very useful method of simplifying active circuits and complex networks because we can solve complex linear circuits and networks especially electronic networks easily and quickly. …
