-Y Transformation
A particular configuration of resistors (or impedances) that does not lend itself to the using series and parallel combination techniques is that of a delta () connection In such cases the delta () connection is converted to a wye (Y) configuration The reverse transformation can also be performed

Circuits with Dependent Sources


Strategy: Apply KVL and KCL, treating dependent source(s) as independent sources. Determine the relationship between dependent source values and controlling parameters. Solve equations for unknowns.

Example: Inverting Amplifier


The following circuit is a (simplified) model for an inverting amplifier created from an operational amplifier (op-amp). It is an example of negative feedback.

Inverting Amplifier
Applying KVL yielded: -10V + 1kW I + 4kW I + 10kW I + 100 Vf = 0
Get Vf in terms of I: Vf + 10kW I + 100Vf = 0 Vf = -(10kW/101) I
