Decent Essays
PROCEDURE
Maximum power and Norton’s Theorem will be performed to solve the unknowns within the given circuit. How to use both Maximum Power and Norton’s Theorem properly, are to be explained in order to solve a circuit using these approaches.

THEORY
MAXIMUM POWER Maximum power states that a load receives max power from a network when it’s resistance is exactly equal to the Thevenin and Norton resistance of the network supplying the power (as shown below):

If the load resistance is higher or lower than the Thevenin/Norton equivalent then there would be no maximum power continued on next page: AT 0.5 Ω:

AT 1.1 Ω In Max Power a bell curve graph would be used to show the correlation between power (R_L) versus resistance (R_S)

But in Norton’s Theorem the equivalent circuit has a current source and a resistance in parallel with the load resistance (R_X). Continued on next page: HOW IS IT USED
When using Norton’s Theorem the load resistance is removed and replaced with a short (wire) and points labeled A and B. The reason to label the points A and B is to show where the meter would measure the unknown voltage and current associated with the load resistance. Next the load resistor is placed into the Norton’s equivalent circuit. In addition to that, the equivalent circuit is where to solve for the Norton resistance (R_N) and the Norton current (I_N).

HOW TO DO KIRCHHOFF’S LAWS
Kirchhoff’s Laws are a great habit continue to have and use. These laws will help to see if the computations that were done within a circuit and the polarities are correct.

Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law (KVL):
Kirchhoff Voltage Law (KVL) states that the sum of the rises and falls around a complete path throughout the circuit that equals zero. The formula used is: 0 =V_1+ V_2+V_3

Kirchhoff’s Current Law (KCL) (continued on next

    There were two different parts to this experiment. Part one, utilized a single electrical resistance strain gage in order to measure strains that prove simple Bernoulli-Euler beam theory [1]. Part two, was to use two electrical resistance strain gages which are mounted to the cantilever beam in order to measure the Poisson ratio for the material [1]. We would then use the data collected to calculate the Poisson ratio and compare it to that of 6061-T6 aluminum, along with the uncertainty of the Poisson ratio calculation. We were also able to develop graph, in which related the tip displacement and strain gage output.…

    The power consumption by the load is given as The VPV and Ri are constant, then Consider = 0, then . Hence load can achieve maximum power when Ri = Ro. The above explained simple method cannot be used to get the maximum power. To achieve the goal boost converter is used, which is shown in the Figure 4.9. Figure 4.9 Circuit diagram of boost converter employed in PV system The analysis is performed under the ideal condition.…

    Which is reached by making r = 0. Therefore P_(L_MAX )= E^2/R_L with an ideal source. Thus for a completely resistive circuit the internal resistance of a DC source should be equal to zero for maximum power transfer to the load resistance. The derivation of the maximum power transfer theorem for resistive and non-linear impedance AC circuits. I – Phasor current (ωL or-1/ωC)_L and (ωL or-1/ωC)_r= X_L and X_r respectively I = (E_rms∠0°)/(Z+Z_r ) = (E_rms∠0°)/(r+R_L+j(X_r+X_L)) P_L= |I|^2 R_L =R_L/(〖(r+R_L)〗^2+〖(X+X_L)〗^2 ) 〖E_rms〗^2 2.1) The maximum power transfer when we have the choice to decide both the load resistance and reactance.…

    Chapter 3 Interleaved Buck Converter System 3.1 INTRODUCTION Interleaved Buck Converter has lots of concentration due to its simple and low control complexity in application. where no isolation and high output current with low ripple. An No isolation DC/DC converter Fig.1.1 shows the step-down DC/DC converter. When switch M is on for the duration of dTs, power is transferred from source to load and filter inductor L is charged. When switch M is off for a duration (1-d)Ts, the diode D becomes forward-biased and forms a conduction path for the filter inductor current.…

    With the intention to simplify the analysis, it was assumed the current, independent of the direction, always will be conducted by the MOSFET channel, instead of the body diode. The MOSFET on-resistance is the only parasitic resistance considered in this analysis. However, all resistances in the loop (e.g. equivalent series resistance (ESR) of the capacitors and trace resistance) will assist the capacitor switching. In order to obtain a steady-state model, it is necessary to extract the equations of each conduction state.…

    We calculated the coefficient of kinectic friction two differents way. The first method we used was based on calculating the kinetic friction from velocity of the moving block. The second method we used was using the acceleration of the block to figure out the kinetic friction force then the coefficient of kinetic friction. In real world situations, the value of kinetic friction will always be smaller then the value of static friction. In our experiment we figured out the value of the coefficient of static friction to be 0.52229 and the value of the coefficient of kinectic friction to be 0.45797 and 0.60758.…

    Power, measured in watts (W), is defined as the rate of absorbing or disbursing energy. Power is found by the equation P=IV [Power= CurrentsResistance]. The next calculation I found was the KVL sum. The KVL sum is Kirchhoff’s voltage law that says all the voltage around a closed path circuit equals zero. I also found the power conservation sum.…

    Let’s say a coil wound on an iron core. A current is applied and flux is produced. When the current is slowly increased and the values of B are plotted against H will us a B – H graph from 1 to 2 like in the diagram above. At point 2 more increase in current would not produce an increase in B and therefore the current is said to be saturated. When the current is turned off at this point, the iron core will stay magnetised and form a permanent magnet.…
