Mesh Analysis - Supermesh

Solve the circuit and find the power of sources:
Problem 1226 - 1
V_S=10V, I_S=4 A, R_1=2 \Omega, R_2=6 \Omega, R_3=1 \Omega, R_4=2 \Omega.

Solution:
There are three meshes in the circuit. So, we need to assign three mesh currents. It is better to have all the mesh currents loop in the same direction (usually clockwise) to prevent errors when writing out the equations.

Nodal Analysis - Dependent Current Source


Deploy nodal analysis method to solve the circuit and find the power of the dependent source.
using nodal analysis method to find the power of a dependent current source

Solution
I. Identify all nodes in the circuit. Call the number of nodes  N.
The circuit has 4 nodes:
 all nodes
Therefore,  N=4.
