## How do you fix Norton equivalent circuit?

Example-1 Find the Norton Equivalent Circuit Across Terminals AB.

- Step-1 Find Norton equivalent current (IN).
- Step-2 Find equivalent resistance (REQ).
- Step-3 Put the value of Norton current and equivalent resistance in the Norton equivalent circuit.
- Step-1 Find the Norton current (IN).

## How do you calculate Norton equivalent resistance?

Find the Norton resistance by removing all power sources in the original circuit (voltage sources shorted and current sources open) and calculating total resistance between the open connection points. Draw the Norton equivalent circuit, with the Norton current source in parallel with the Norton resistance.

**How does Norton theorem solve circuits?**

The basic procedure for solving a circuit using Nortons Theorem is as follows:

- Remove the load resistor RL or component concerned.
- Find RS by shorting all voltage sources or by open circuiting all the current sources.
- Find IS by placing a shorting link on the output terminals A and B.

### What is the main difference between Norton and Thevenin’s equivalent circuit?

What is the difference between Thevenin and Norton theorems? – Norton’s theorem uses a current source, whereas Thevenin’s theorem uses a voltage source. – Thevenin’s theorem uses a resistor in series, while Norton’s theorem uses a resister set in parallel with the source.

### Is Thevenin and Norton theorem the same?

Thevenin’s theorem states that we can replace all the electric circuit, except a load resistor, as an independent voltage source in series, and the load resistor response will be the same. The Norton’s theorem states that we can replace the electric circuit except the load resistor as a current source in parallel.

**What is Norton’s equivalent?**

Norton’s theorem is similar to Thevenin’s theorem. It states that any two terminal linear network or circuit can be represented with an equivalent network or circuit, which consists of a current source in parallel with a resistor. It is known as Norton’s equivalent circuit.

## What is the Norton equivalent current?

Norton’s equivalent circuit resembles a practical current source. Hence, it is having a current source in parallel with a resistor. The current source present in the Norton’s equivalent circuit is called as Norton’s equivalent current or simply Norton’s current IN.

## Is Thevenin and Norton Theorem the same?

**What is the similarity between Thevenin and Norton Theorem?**

Norton theorem is converse of the Thevenin theorem mentioned above. It consists of equivalent current source instead of equivalent voltage source as used in thevenin theorem. The similarity between the two is that calculation of internal resistance of the network is same.
