(No worries). •  Simultaneous [email protected] may be solved via Cramer’s Rule, or directly on a calculator. –  See Appendix A for Cramer’s Rule. Mesh Current Analysis  ­ Ini=al Version •  1) Define the currents around each mesh in the same [email protected] (clockwise). •  2) Apply KVL around each mesh. Express each KVL voltage, Vn, in terms of one or more mesh currents. Use the passive sign [email protected] •  3) Solve KVL [email protected] simultaneously. Example 1 •  Find power (delivered or absorbed) by the 8 V source. •  1) Define mesh currents •  2) KVL for meshes –  Assign V polarity to resistors –  Sum Vn = 0 •  3) Solve for mesh currents •  Find power for 8 V source Left mesh current (CW) = 4A Right mesh current (CW) = -1/3A Branches Sharing Mesh Currents Require Special A][email protected] •  Consider the net current (downward) for the 8V source •  Net current is I1 – I2 I1 I2 Branches Sharing Mesh Currents Require Special A][email protected]… •  Suppose the upper terminal of the 1 ­Ohm resistor is (+). •  What mesh currents would result in given polarity for the 1 ­Ohm resistor? •  Mesh currents: I1 – I2 I1 I2 Mesh Current Analysis – Full Version •  1) Define the currents around each mesh in the same [email protected] (clockwise). •  2) If a current source is present –  Define Vx as the voltage across it. The polarity for Vx is arbitrary, but should remain unchanged in all KVL [email protected] –  Use KCL to create another [email protected], [email protected] mesh currents to current of the current source. •  3) Apply KVL around each mesh.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
