Generalizations of Blakesley's Source Shift TheoremAbstract: It is shown that the wellknown Voltage Source Shift Theorem due to Blakesley and its dual version, the Current Source Shift Theorem as well as the rules for the transformation of networks with loops of capacitors or cut sets of inductors into networks without such loops or cutsets, resp., and the relationships between capacitance coefficients and partial capacitors are special cases of general theorems on the terminal behavior of networks. The proof of these theorems is based on the theory of terminal behavior of networks. For these proofs we do not need the substitution theorem with its strong uniqueness assumptions. This fact is an essential advantage in comparison to the original proof given by Chua and Green.
