I am trying to solve this homework question:
I got the short circuit in the middle by removing a voltage source. The problem is to find the current flowing through R6.
What I tried:
- Applying Star-Delta transformation on R3, R4 and R5 however it did not lead me anywhere.
- I also cannot seem to be able to apply mesh analysis as no voltages are supplied to me.
- I cannot convert the current source to a voltage source as there is no resistance in parallel with it.
Can someone please give me a hint as to how I should reduce this circuit?
Edit: Circuit after removing the short-circuited element R2:
Thanks to @Transistor and @MCG: I now was able to apply star-delta
Thanks to @Transistor and @MCG: I now was able to apply star-delta transformation which reduced the circuit to this:
I was able to solve this using current division.
P.S. The answer supplied by LTspice is 6 A for R6.
