EXPERIMENT 5 INTRODUCTION Background In circuit analysis, there are two methods that are used to calculate unknown voltages and currents. The first method discussed is known as the Node-Voltage (NV) method. This method is used to find voltages at the nodes in a circuit by using Kirchhoff’s Current Law (KCL). The second method discussed is known as the Mesh-Current (M-C) method. This method is used to find the currents that flow through the meshes in a circuit by using Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law (KVL) as long as that circuit is in a single plane. Purpose The purpose of this experiment is to give a correlation between the N-V method and M-C method in circuit analysis. This is accomplished through the gathering of data and data manipulation. With test equipment available, the measurements of voltage, current, and resistance for a given circuit were obtained. From these measurements, theoretical values of voltage and current can be compared to the measured values by obtaining the percent difference. METHODOLOGY
