Network theorems or circuit theorems are special aids, which can reduce the amount of effort involved in circuit analysis to a considerable degree. For linear networks, there exists interdependence between various network theorems. Thus, by careful analysis, one theorem can verify in terms of another theorem and it is advantageous for pedagogical reasons. A scheme for analogue circuit analysis is presented in this paper. Here piece-by-piece or part-by-part analyzing strategy is employed which can reduce the complexity associated with analyzing or biasing design of large analogue circuits. Fixatornorator pair plays the key role in this methodology. Hybrid equivalent circuit, an alternative for Thevenin’s or Norton’s equivalent model is realized with fixator-norator pair, and is seen to be more dynamic and flexible since it contains both voltage source and current source. Thevenin’s theorem, compensation theorem and maximum power transfer theorem are analyzed in terms of fixator norator pairs, and the study indicates the importance and capabilities of fixator-norator pair and hence hybrid equivalent circuit in analogue circuit design and analysis.
Keywords: Compensation Theorem, Fixator-norator Pair, Hybrid Equivalent Circuit, Maximum Power Transfer Theorem, Thevenin’s Theorem
