**Methods of Finding Thevenin’s Equivalent Circuit**

We already have discussed 1^{st} approach in the last blog, if haven’t visited there click here to read the blog. Let’s now talk about 2^{nd} approach.

#### Method 2

When both independent type and dependent type sources are present, use these methods to find Thevenin’s equivalent circuit.

**Step 1 −** Consider the circuit diagram by opening the terminals with respect to which, Thevenin’s equivalent circuit is to be found.

**Step 2 −** Find Thevenin’s voltage V_{Th} across the open terminals of the above circuit.

**Step 3 −** Find the short circuit current ISC by shorting the two opened terminals of the above circuit.

**Step 4 −** Find Thevenin’s resistance R_{Th} by using the following formula.

**Step 5 –** Connect the Thevenin voltage V_{Th }and Thevenin resistance R_{Th} in series to create the Thevenin equivalent circuit.

The response is now located in a component that is on the right side of Thevenin’s equivalent circuit.
