Unformatted text preview: application of Kirchhoff ’s current law at the
nonreference nodes. (It is applicable to both planar and nonplanar
circuits.) We express the result in terms of the node voltages.
Solving the simultaneous equations yields the node voltages.
2. A supernode consists of two nonreference nodes connected by a
(dependent or independent) voltage source.
3. Mesh analysis is the application of Kirchhoff ’s voltage law around
meshes in a planar circuit. We express the result in terms of mesh
currents. Solving the simultaneous equations yields the mesh
4. A supermesh consists of two meshes that have a (dependent or
independent) current source in common.
5. Nodal analysis is normally used when a circuit has fewer node
equations than mesh equations. Mesh analysis is normally used
when a circuit has fewer mesh equations than node equations.
6. Circuit analysis can be carried out using PSpice.
7. DC transistor circuits can be analyzed using the techniques covered in this chapter. REVIEW QUESTIONS | At node 1 in the circuit in...
