Question | Answer |

Maximum power transfer theorem | A theorem used to determine the load resistance necessary to ensure maximum power transfer to the load. |

Millman's theorem | A method using source conversions that will permit the determination of unknown variables in a multiloop network. |

Norton's theorem | A theorem that permits the reduction of any two-terminal linear de network to one having a single current source and parallel resistor. |

Reciprocity theorem | A theorem that states that the I in any branch of a network due to a single voltage source will equal the I through the branch in which the source was originally located if the source is placed in the branch in which the current was originally measured. |

Substitution theorem | A theorem that states that if the voltage across and current through any branch of a de bilateral network are known, the branch cap be replaced by any combination of elements that will maintain the same voltage across current through the chosen branch. |

Superposition theorem | A network theorem that permits considering the effects of each source independently. The resulting current and/or voltage is the algebraic sum of the currents and/or voltages developed by each source independently. |

Thevenin's theorem | A theorem that permits the reduction of any two-terminal, linear de network to one having a single voltage source and series resistor. |
