Norton Current refers to the equivalent current source in Norton’s theorem, a fundamental principle used in electrical engineering to simplify complex linear circuits.

Norton’s theorem states that any linear electrical network with voltage sources and resistances can be replaced by a single current source in parallel with a single resistor.

This current is equivalent to the short-circuit current that flows between two points in a circuit.

The calculation of Norton current involves determining the current that would flow if the terminals of interest were short-circuited, assuming all independent sources are active while dependent sources retain their dependency conditions.

Norton’s Theorem states that any linear electrical network with voltage sources and resistances can be simplified to a single current source in parallel with a single resistor.

Norton current, I_{n(A)} in amperes is calculated by dividing the thevenin voltage, V_{t(V)} in volts by thevenin resistance, R_{t(Ω)} in ohms.

Norton current, I_{n(A)} = V_{t(V)} / R_{t(Ω)}

I_{n(A)} = Norton current in amperes, A.

V_{t(V)} = thevenin voltage in volts, V.

R_{t(Ω)} = thevenin resistance in ohms, Ω.

**Calculate the Norton current for a network with a thevenin voltage of 12 volts across the terminals and a thevenin resistance of 6 ohms:**

**Given: **V_{t(V)} = 12V, R_{t(Ω)} = 6 Ω.

Norton current, I_{n(A)} = V_{t(V)} / R_{t(Ω)}

I_{n(A)} = 12 / 6

I_{n(A)} = 2A.

**Determine the thevenin resistance, if the Norton current is 4 amperes and the thevenin voltage across the terminals is 16 volts:**

**Given: **V_{t(V)} = 16V, I_{n(A)} = 4A.

Norton current, I_{n(A)} = V_{t(V)} / R_{t(Ω)}

R_{t(Ω)} = V_{t(V)} / I_{n(A)}

R_{t(Ω)} = 16 / 4

R_{t(Ω)} = 4 Ω.
