Hi, I would appreciate some directions on how to proceed to solve this Norton equivalent circuit.
It is Q1 (b).
I have found the Rth using test source method of 10V.
However, I am now stuck to how to find the dependent current source Ix...
Can I do source conversion for the 80V 20omhs part? Wouldn't it "eat" up the short circuit? If so, then should I use nodal analysis to find Ix? If using nodal analysis to find Ix, assuming that V1 is on the left, then what is V2, because it faces the 80V source as well as the 2A current source (which becomes a 120V source after conversion).
