SJTU 4 KIRCHHOFF’S LAWS Kirchhoff’s Current Law (KCL): The algebraic sum of currents entering a node (or a closed boundary) is zero. (Based on the law of conservation of charge) The sum of the currents entering a node = the sum of the currents leaving the node. = = N k k i 1 0 5 2 4 3 1 5 4 3 2 1 0 i i i i i or i i i i i + = + + = - + + -

5 KCL also applies to a closed boundary . 1 i 2 i 3 i 4 i 5 i 0 0 5 4 3 2 1 7 6 3 2 1 = - - - - = - - - - i i i i i or i i i i i so 7 i 6 i Note: 1) KCL is available to every node at anytime. 2) KCL is related only to the currents instead of the elements.
