Mesh Current Analysis Method Sometimes abbreviated as Mesh-Current Method. Limited to planar circuits (as opposed to Node Voltage method which applies to non-planar circuits also). Systemic method: 1. e , b e ). 2. Make minimum number of meshes to cover all the essential branches [b e – (n e – 1)] . 3. Label the mesh currents as i 1 , i 2 , etc. in any direction. Usually we take the same direction for all mesh currents. 4. Write one equation for each mesh current using KVL (voltage drop/rise across a loop = 0) 5. Solve these equations simultaneously to find all the mesh current values. 6. Voltage across every element can be found using current relations and use of Ohm’s law.
3 Mesh-Current Analysis Example 1 n e = 3 b e = 5 Mesh-current eqn = 3 Assuming mesh currents I 1 , I 2 3 flowing in clockwise direction
