In this lab project we examine series-parallel circuit in order to determine the current in one specific branch of the examined circuit (usually load current). DC Power Supply supplies the circuit with time-constant electromotive force. Analyzes will be provided by Thevenin's Theorem. The purpose of the project is to verify the theory of Thevenin's Theorem.

**Theory Part 1**

**Thevenin's Theorem**

Thevenin's Theorem can be demonstrated using the circuit shown in Figure 1. In Figure 1 is shown circuit with four resistors

and *R*_{L},

connected with voltage generator with electromotive force *E*=20 V. The assignment is to determine current *I*_{L }trough resistor *R*_{L}.

The calculation of the expected current trough and the voltage across the resistor*R _{L }*can be simplified by using Thevenin's Theorem. If the entire circuit with the exception of terminals A and B were enclosed in a

If these Thevenin equivalent values are known, the expected current through, and the

voltage across*R*_{L }may be calculated easily by using Ohm's Law. The Thevenin voltage,

*E*_{T}, appears the unloaded terminals A and B. Since no current flow through*R*_{3} in Figure 2

when A and B are unloaded, the voltage appearing across terminals A and B is the same

as the voltage appearing across*R*_{2}. Therefore *E*_{T}=*E*_{R2}. Assume a 20 V dc input and

calculate the Thevenin voltage*E*_{T }across terminals A and B.

voltage across

when A and B are unloaded, the voltage appearing across terminals A and B is the same

as the voltage appearing across

calculate the Thevenin voltage

Now, calculate the Thevenin equivalent resistance RT, appearing across terminals A and

B. Assume that a direct short replaces the 20 V dc power source. Therefore, *R _{1}*, is now in

Calculate the current *I _{L}* through resistance

**Practice Part 1**

**Equipment**:

- Breadboard

- Three resistors with: and one variable resistor,
- Two universal instruments.

Connect the circuit as it shown in Figure 4.

**Experimental determination of equivalent Thevenin generator**

1) Disconnect the ammeter and variable resistance *R _{L}*. Set up the voltage on 20 V.

2) Connect the voltmeter between terminals A and B and measure the Thevenin voltage generator

3) Connect the ammeter and measure the current of short circuit between

terminals A and B with *(R _{L}=0) *

4) Calculate the equivalent resistance ( *R _{L}*=0 – short circuit on terminals A

and B).

**Experimental determination of the current I_{L }and the power P_{L} for the resistor R_{L}**

5) Connect again the circuit shown in Figure 4. Set up and keep the voltage at 20V. Changing the resistance of the variable resistor *R _{L }*for the values in Table 1 measure and record the values of current
