Verification of Reciprocity Theorem

.

Objective:   Verification of  Reciprocity theorem.

In any branch of a network , the current (I) due to a single source  of voltage (V) elsewhere in the network is equal to the current

through the branch in which the source was originally placed when the source is placed in the branch in which the current (I) was

originally obtained.

In simple sence , the location of the voltage source and the through current maybe interchange without a change in current . However

the polarity of the voltage source should have identically with the dirction of branch current in each position.The limitation of this

theorem is that it is applicable only to single source natworks and not in multisource network. Moreover, the network where reciprocity

theorem is applied should be linear one containing resistors, inductors, capacitors and coupled circuits.

Apply a small voltage at a-a and measure the short circuit current at b-b. Check the ratio =Va-a /Ib-b
