Continued Fractions Method

Continued Fractions Method: This Continued Fractions Method is very popularly used to find the equivalent resistance of a ladder type resistive network. Consider a ladder network as shown in the Fig. 1.40. Let us calculate equivalent resistance by series parallel method first. So (t + u) is in parallel with s. The combination is in series with […]

Nodal analysis

Nodal analysis: This Nodal analysis method is mainly based on Kirchhoff’s Current Law (KCL). This method uses the analysis of the different nodes of the network. We have already defined a node. Every junction point in a network, where two or more branches meet is called a node. One of the nodes is assumed as […]

Mesh Analysis

Mesh Analysis or Loop Analysis: This method of Mesh Analysis is specially useful for the circuits that have many nodes and loops. The difference between application of Kirchhoff’s laws and loop analysis is, in loop analysis instead of branch currents, the loop currents are considered for writing the equations. The another difference is, in this method, […]

Source Transformation

Source Transformation: Sometimes in the complex network, both the energy sources may be present. But in loop analysis, all the energy sources should be preferably voltage sources and in node analysis, all the energy sources should be preferably current sources. The source transformation technique is useful in converting voltage source to current source and current […]
