Answer to Question #200145 in Electrical Engineering for Rownak Jahan

Question #200145

Slove this question according to figure 04.

  1. Find the Thevenin equivalent circuit looking from the terminals a-b as shown in Figure 04.
  2. In Figure 04, assume that the load is purely resistive (RL), determine the value of the load resistor RL across terminals a-b for maximum average-power transfer, and calculate the RMS value of the load current when RL is connected between terminals a-b.
  3.  Calculate the complex power drawn by the load when RL is connected between terminals a-b.
Expert's answer

(a) Let current I flow in "3\\Omega" resistor as no current will flow in "\\perp\\Omega" resistor due to open.

By KCL at node b

Current in S "\\Omega" resistor "=(I+2)A" ,so By KCL in loop



"I=\\perp A"

So, "V_{th}=(5\\Omega)(I+2)A"



(b) First we have to find Rth (thevenin equivalent seen from b-c node) for this short voltage source and open current source.

As "\\perp\\Omega" is open so not take part

"\\therefore R_{th} =(2\\Omega+3\\Omega+4\\Omega)\/\/(sn)"



So, therenin equivalent current for maximum power transfer


"\\therefore R_l=3.214\\Omega"

(c) As "R_l=R_{th}=3.214" for maximum power

So, maximum power transfer to "R_l=I_{max}^2*R_l"



"=17.5 watts"
