Superposition theorem is applicable only to linear and bilateral circuits. Diodes and trasistors are often not bilateral and linear.

  • $\begingroup$ I saw in some texts that superposition theorem is used in analyzing Dc,AC operations of transistor amplifier.Please comment on this. $\endgroup$ Feb 11, 2014 at 15:32
  • $\begingroup$ Remember that you work in the linear zone; hence the name linear amplifier $\endgroup$ Feb 11, 2014 at 15:57
