## 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.
