Analyzing the Parallel-T RC Network

  • Suhash Chandra Dutta Roy

Following a review of the various alternative methods available for analyzing the parallel-T RC network, we present yet another conceptually elegant method. This discussion illustrates the famous saying of Ramakrishna Paramhansa: As many religions, as many ways. Don’t just grab one method; learn all of them and decide for yourself which one you find to be the simplest.
