Learning Objectives Why is there a need for more powerful techniques to solve circuits. What is the node voltage method. How do we apply it.
Why do you need a technique like nodal analysis? Reduces the number of equations to solve simultaneously.

Unformatted text preview: Nodal Analysis 1. Select a reference node . Assign voltages v 1 , v 2 , ….v n to the remaining n-1 essential nodes. 2. Apply KCL to each essential node. 3. Solve the resulting simultaneous equations to obtain unknown node voltages. What do we do when we have a voltage source between 2 essential nodes? Solving simultaneous equations using Cramer’s rule 1. Write the simultaneous equation in matrix form. 2. Use Cramer’s rule to solve. 3v 1 – 2v 2 – v 3 = 12-4v 1 + 7v 2 –v 3 = 0 2v 1 – 3v 2 + v 3 = 0...
