I've been wondering this recently. My intuition says that a voltage drop across a dependent source is no different than any other circuit element whose response depends on the inputs of one of the independent sources. But I don't feel like that reasoning is rigorous enough. How exactly would this principle regarding treatment of dependent sources be derived?
- Electrical – Equivalent resistances with the superposition theorem
- Electrical – Doubling the voltage to a capacitor doubles the stored charge but does not make it charge slower. Why not
- Electronic – Use of superposition principle for the inverting amplifier
- Electronic – Why is the verification of Thevenin’s theorem more accurate than that of Superposition theorem
