Massachusetts Institute of Technology Department of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science 6.061 Introduction to Power Systems Class Notes Chapter 1: Review of Network Theory∗ J.L. Kirtley Jr. 1 Introduction This note is a review of some of the most salient points of electric network theory. In it we do not prove any of the assertions that are made. We deal only with passive, linear network elements. 2 Network Primitives Electric network theory deals with two primitive quantities, which we will refer to as: 1. Potential (or voltage), and 2. Current. Current is the actual ﬂow of charged carriers, while diﬀerence in potential is the force that causes that ﬂow. As we will see, potential is a single- valued function that may be uniquely deﬁned over the nodes of a network. Current, on the other hand, ﬂows through the branches of the network. Figure 1 shows the basic notion of a branch, in which a voltage is deﬁned across the branch and a current is deﬁned to ﬂow through the branch. A network is a collection of such elements, connected together by wires. i + v − Figure 1: Basic Circuit Element Network topology is the interconnection of its elements. That, plus the constraints on voltage and current imposed by the elements themselves, determines the performance of the network, described by the distribution of voltages and currents throughout the network. Two important concepts must be described initially. These are of “loop” and “node”. ∗ c �2007 James L. Kirtley Jr. 1

1. A loop in the network is any closed path through two or more elements of the network. Any non-trivial network will have at least one such loop. v 2 + i2 − + − i3 v1 − + v3 i1 Figure 2: This is a loop 2. a node is a point at which two or more elements are interconnected. + v1 − − v2 + i2 − i1 + v3 i3 Figure 3: This is a node The two fundamental laws of network theory are known as Kirchoﬀ ’s Voltage Law (KVL), and Kirchoﬀ ’s Current Law (KCL). These laws describe the topology of the network, and arise directly from the fundmantal laws of electromagnetics. They are simply stated as: • Kirchoﬀ’s Voltage Law states that, around any loop of a network, the sum of all voltages, taken in the same direction, is zero: � vk = 0 (1) loop • Kirchoﬀ’s Current Law states that, at any node of a network, the sum of all currents entering the node is zero: � ik = 0 (2) node 1Note that KVL is a discrete version of Faraday’s Law, valid to the extent that no time-varying ﬂux links the loop. KCL is just conservation of current, allowing for no accumulation of charge at the node. 2

Network elements aﬀect voltages and currents in one of three ways: 1. Voltage sources constrain the potential diﬀerence across their terminals to be of some ﬁxed value (the value of the source). 2. Current sources constrain the current through the branch to be of some ﬁxed value. 3. All other elements impose some sort of relationship, either linear or nonlinear, between voltage across and current through the branch. + v i − Current Source Voltage Source Figure 4: Notation for voltage and current sources Voltage and current sources can be either independent or dependent. Independent sources have values which are, as the name implies, independent of other variables in a circuit. Dependent sources have values which depend on some other variable in a circuit. A common example of a dependent source is the equivalent current source used for modeling the collector junction in a transistor. Typically, this is modeled as a current dependent current source, in which collector current is taken to be directly dependent on emitter current. Such dependent sources must be handled with some care, for certain tricks we will be discussing below do not work with them. For the present time, we will consider, in addition to voltage and current sources, only impedance elements, which impose a linear relationship between voltage and current. The most common of these is the resistance, which imposes the relationship which is often referred to as Ohm’s law: vr = Rir (3) ir + vr R − Figure 5: Resistance Circuit Element A bit later on in this note, we will extend this notion of impedance to other elements, but for the moment the resistance will serve our purposes. 3

3 Examples: Voltage and Current Dividers Figure 6 may be used as an example to show how we use all of this. See that it has one loop and three nodes. Around the loop, KVL is: Vs − v1 − v2 = 0 At the upper right- hand node, we have, by KCL: i1 − i2 = 0 The constitutive relations imposed by the resistances are: v1 = R1 i1 v2 = R2 i2 Combining these, we ﬁnd that: Vs = (R1 + R2 )i1 We may solve for the voltage across, say, R2 , to obtain the so-called voltage divider relationship: v2 = Vs v1 + v s (4) − + i1 R2 R1 + R2 R1 R2 − + v2 − i2 Figure 6: Voltage Divider A second example is illustrated by Figure 7. Here, KCL at the top node yields: Is − i1 − i2 = 0 And KVL, written around the loop that has the two resistances, is: R1 i1 − R2 i2 = 0 Combining these together, we have the current divider relationship: i2 = Is R1 R1 + R2 (5) Once we have derived the voltage and current divider relationships, we can use them as part of our “intellectual toolkit”, because they will always be true. 4
