Unformatted text preview: practical current and (ideal and practical) voltage sources as well, we can apply the “Dummy Version” of the method that is based on a circuit’s topology and allows the setup of the system of equations with considerable less e±ort. 1. Convert all practical current sources to equivalent voltage sources. 2. De²ne each mesh current. Convention: always clockwise unless current sources are present or cur-rents are known otherwise. 3. Fill resistance matrix ( R –matrix) diagonal: R i,i sum of all resistances in mesh i , counted positive 4. Fill resistance matrix ( R –matrix) o±–diagonal: R i,j = R j,i sum of all resistances in common with meshes i and j , counted negative 5. Fill voltage vector: V i Sum of all voltage sources in mesh i : Count the voltage positive if mesh current leaves the positive terminal Count the voltage negative if the mesh current leaves the negative terminal...
