Divider Circuits

In this blog we will review the theory of the Current Divider circuits in a parallel circuit. In a parallel circuit, all the components have their terminals connected together sharing the same two end nodes. This results in different paths and branches for the current to flow or pass along. However, the currents can have different values through each component but the voltage remains the same across two end nodes.

A basic illustration of Power Transfer

In this blog we will review the maximum amount of power transferred from a source to a load. Sometimes efficiency, in a circuit, is not the essential/key parameter. We will often overlook how inefficient a special purpose circuit may be in cases where we want it to perform a specific task.
