Nodal Analysis – Dependent Current Source
Nodal analysis method is deployed to solve a four-node circuit which has a dependent current source. The target is to find the power of the controlled current source.
Nodal Analysis – Dependent Voltage Source (5-Nodes)
The nodal analysis method is deployed to solve a circuit which has one dependent voltage source, one independent voltage source and one independent current source.
Nodal Analysis – Supernode
This is a circuit with two voltage sources and two current sources. Nodal analysis method is used to solve the circuit. One of the voltage source forms a supernode between two nodes.
Nodal Analysis Problem with Dependent Voltage and Current Sources
This is a complicated nodal analysis problem. The circuit has two independent sources and two dependent sources. A supernode is formed to solve the problem.
Reference Node and Node Voltages
A node is usually labelled as the reference node also called ground and the other node voltages are defined with respect to this point. The reference node has a potential of 0 V by definition.
