Electronic Testing Tutorials Nodal analysis is also known as the node-voltage
method. Having understood the fundamental laws of circuit theory (Ohm’s law and
Kirchhoff’s laws), we are now prepared to apply these laws to develop
two powerful techniques for circuit analysis: nodal analysis, which is
based on a systematic application of Kirchhoff’s current law (KCL), and
mesh analysis, which is based on a systematic application of Kirchhoff’s
voltage law (KVL). The two techniques are so important that this chapter
should be regarded as the most important in the book. Students are
therefore encouraged to pay careful attention.
With the two techniques to be developed in this chapter, we can
analyze almost any circuit by obtaining a set of simultaneous equations
that are then solved to obtain the required values of current or volt...
