4.4 SOURCE TRANSFORMATION THEOREM AND ITS USE IN NODAL ANALYSIS

We continue the development of nodal analysis technique for circuits containing independent voltage sources in this section by taking up the case where an independent voltage source is connected in series with a resistor. This case can indeed be solved by the procedure developed in the previous section. However, there is a better way. We need the Source Transformation Theorem to understand this method.

4.4.1 Source Transformation Theorem

It was pointed out in Chap 1 that practical voltage sources can often be modelled as ideal independent voltage source in series with a resistance. Similarly, practical current sources can be modelled by an ideal independent current source in parallel ...
