This chapter will parallel Chapter 8
, which dealt with network theorems
as applied to dc networks. It would be time well spent to review each
theorem in Chapter 8 before beginning this chapter because many of the
comments offered there will not be repeated.
Due to the need for developing confidence in the application of the
various theorems to networks with controlled (dependent) sources,
some sections have been divided into two parts: independent sources
and dependent sources.
Theorems to be considered in detail include the superposition theorem, Thevenin's and Norton's theorems, and the maximum power theorem. The substitution and reciprocity theorems and Millman's theorem
are not discussed in detail here because a review of Chapter 8 will
enable you to apply them to sinusoidal ac networks with little difficulty.
