Here is a circuit that I have been struggling with.
So we have two Ideal Resistors (with their perfect characteristics attached below), two 4.7k Resistors, two DC voltage sources and one AC voltage source with a 9v triangular wave the peak the waveform is 9v.
I want to calculate:
(1)  The maximum positive voltage that can appear at 'v'.
(2)  The maximum negative voltage that can appear at 'v' .
(3)  The maximum current that can pass through D1
(4)  The max current through D2
I know the answers to the first two, but I dont understand the methodology.
So do we convert the circuit into an equivalent Thévenin/Norton circuit?
How would you analyze it?
