Node Voltage Analysis — General Version [EE305] 1. Select the reference node. Usually, this will be the one with the most elements attached to it, which typically is the ground node. 2. DeFne the node voltages as either dependent or independent variables. (a) If a node is not connected to a voltage source, its voltage is treated as an independent variable. (b) If a voltage source is connected between two nodes, one of them will be treated as a dependent variable as the voltage di±erence between

Unformatted text preview: the two nodes is known to be the source voltage value. 3. Apply KCL at each node labeled as an independent variable, expressing each current in terms of the adjacent node voltages, utilizing the elements iv characteristic. 4. Sort the resulting equations in terms of the independent node voltages. 5. Solve the linear system of equations. or a circuit with n nodes containing m voltage sources, this leads to a system of n-m-1 equations. I S 1 I S 2 R 1 R 2 R 3 R 4...
