Ch 9 Glossary

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.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
