Unformatted text preview: (D) is an attempt to write down KVR for the top loop
Start at negative terminal of V2 and go clockwise
• Vgain (V2) then Vgain (I2R2) then Vgain (I1R1) then Vdrop (+V1) R1 V1 R2 V2 R3 V3 I1 Calculation
I3 • We have the following 4 equations: 1. I2 = I1 + I3 2. V1 + I1R1 I3R3 + V3 = 0 3. V3 + I3R3 + I2R2 + V2 = 0 4. V2 – I2R2 I1R1 + V1 = 0
– In this circuit, assume Vi and Ri are known.
What is I2 ?? We ne e d 3 e q ua tio ns : Wh ic h 3 s h o uld we us e ? A) Any 3 will d o B) 1 , 2 , a nd 4 C ) 2 , 3 , a nd 4 We need 3 INDEPENDENT equations
Equations 2, 3, and 4 are NOT INDEPENDENT
• Eqn 2 + Eqn 3 = Eqn 4 We must choose Eqn 1 and any two of the remaining ( 2, 3, and 4) BB R1 V1 R2 V2 R3 R
