# Nodal Analysis - Circuit with Dependent Voltage Source

Determine the power of each source after solving the circuit by the nodal analysis.

Answers: $P_{I_x}=0.497W, P_{1A}=-1.806W, P_{2A}=4.254W, P_{3V}=-3.87W,$ and $P_{5V}=-3.552W$

Solution

I. Identify all nodes in the circuit.
The circuit has 6 nodes as highlighted below.
Find the power of $Is_1$ using circuit reduction methods.
$R_1$ and $R_4$ are parallel. $R_2$ and $R_3$ are also parallel. Therefore:
