An equivalent circuit is a simplified version of the given circuit, retaining all of the electrical characteristics of a given circuit. Equivalent circuits help in analysis of complex circuits and greatly simplify calculations.
Thévenin equivalent circuit for example is a often used in network reduction and modeling.
It states that any linear, bilateral two-terminal circuit can be replaced by a single voltage source and a series impedance. The equivalent circuit would retain the same properties as mentioned above.
Here is an example:
The circuit in (d) is the simplified equivalent of (a).
