L Haken ECE110 transparencies – set 4 page 2 Nodal Analysis Nodal analysis is a particular method of solving circuits. You write equations in terms of node voltages, and then solve those equations. 1) Label every node in the circuit, and label currents through each voltage source and current source. 2) Write down any “known” voltage: Æ Ground is 0 volts Æ Use node voltage constraints across voltage sources 3) Write KCL equations in terms of the node voltages. For n nodes, you have n-1 equations. 4) Solve the equations to get the unknown node voltages. 5) Solve for currents through each element (if you are asked to do so) using the node voltages. 6) Solve for power (if you are asked to do so).
