## How is current source represented?

Real current sources can be represented as ideal current sources in parallel with a resistance r, the ideal current source having infinite resistance. Such ideal voltage and current sources are used in modeling real circuits with Thevenin’s theorem and Norton’s theorem.

### Are practical current source can also be represented as?

A practical or non-ideal current source can be represented as an ideal source with an internal resistance connected across it. The internal resistance (RP) produces the same effect as a resistance connected in parallel (shunt) with the current source as shown.

**What are practical current source?**

Definition: A practical current source is a two terminal device having some resistance connected across its terminals. Unlike ideal current source, the output current of practical source depends on the voltage of the source. The more this voltage, the lesser will be the current.

**What are the practical applications of a constant current source?**

Current sources can be used to bias transistors and can also be used as active loads for high gain amplifier stages. They may also be used as the emitter sources for differential amplifiers – for example they may be used in the transistor long tailed pair.

## How do the practical voltage source and current source differ from ideal sources?

Difference between an Ideal and Practical Current Source Remember that the current provided is independent of voltage. The ideal current source is supposed to have infinite internal resistance, . Practical Current Source has some internal resistance connected in parallel to Ideal Current Source.

### What is a practical current source Mcq?

Current Source MCQ Question 5 Detailed Solution Practical Current Source: A practical current source is equivalent to an ideal current source in parallel with high resistance or low conductance.

**How is practical voltage source represented?**

Explanation: A practical voltage source can be represented with a resistance in series with the source. Hence, there would be some voltage drop at the resistor and the terminal voltage is always lower than the source emf.

**What is ideal and practical source?**

A voltage source is a two-terminal device whose voltage at any instant of time is constant and is independent of the current drawn from it. Such a voltage source is called an Ideal Voltage Source and have zero internal resistance. Sources having some amount of internal resistances are known as Practical Voltage Source.

## How do you represent a practical voltage source?

A practical voltage source is thus denoted by a resistance in series which represents the internal resistance of source. The graph represents the voltage of the voltage source with respect to time.

### What is a practical current source?

Practical current source is modelled as an ideal current source in parallel with its internal resistance indicated by a resistor. For more Information, You can also watch the below video. Practically the current sources don’t have infinite resistance across them but has some finite and high resistance.

**What is the value of current in ideal current source?**

The value of current will be constant with respect to time and load resistance. This means that the power delivering capability is infinite for this source. An ideal current source has infinite parallel resistance connected to it. Therefore, the output current is independent of voltage of the source terminals.

**What is the internal resistance of a practical current source?**

A practical current source consists of a 3A ideal current source which has an internal resistance of 500 Ohms. With no-load attached, calculate the current sources open-circuit terminal voltage and the no-load power absorbed by the internal resistor. 1.

## Which source shows that the circuit is a current source?

A source with a parallel resistor shows that the circuit is current source. A practical current source is represented by a finite impedance connected parallel to the current source. Hope! you understand it.
