Mesh Analysis Nodal vs. Mesh •I n nodal analysis , circuit variables are node voltages • Nodal analysis applies KCL to find unknown voltages •I n mesh analysis , circuit variables are mesh currents • Mesh analysis applies KVL to find unknown currents • Both methods result in a system of linear equations • Mesh analysis is only applicable to a circuit that is planar Planar vs. Non-planar Planar circuit : it can be drawn on a plane surface where no element cross any other element Non-planar circuit : there is no way to redraw it and C C What is a mesh/mesh current? •A mesh is a loop that does not contain any other loops within it • The current through a mesh is known as mesh current ab c d

Steps of Mesh Analysis 1. Assign a mesh current to each mesh. 2. Apply KVL to each mesh --- express voltages in terms of mesh currents. 3. Solve the resulting linear equations. Example V a R 1 R 2 R 3 V b Mesh Equations by Visual Inspection
