Circuit (Network) analysis is the process of finding the voltages across, and the currents through, every component in the network.

I just started mesh analysis, but don't really understand the concept of a loop current. The current in different parts of a loop is not necessarily constant - two parts of the same loop can have diff …

Googling this gave me a number of proofs, but almost all of them assume the load is a linear component. Could someone give me a proof for these theorems assuming the load can be anything (a linear or …

simulate this circuit – Schematic created using CircuitLab From what I understand, the magnitude and direction from an independent current source is constant. What would happen in the circuit a …

simulate this circuit – Schematic created using CircuitLab What would the voltage across the resistor be? What would its polarity be? I don't see anyway for KVL to not be violated.

When using nodal analysis, my book says you will always end up with $n-1$ linearly independent equations, where $n$ is the number of nodes. Can someone intuitively explain why this is true? If it …

Say your trying to find the Thevenin equivalent of a linear circuit with dependent and independent sources. You would find $V_{OC}$ (voltage across the short circuit) and $I_{SC}$, the source cur …

I previously asked a question about how KVL is used in node analysis. I'm betting that KCL is also used in mesh analysis. Could someone explain if and how KCL is used in mesh analysis?

My book above uses nodal analysis to find the current and voltage across the resistors. Now consider this alternate circuit: Look at the branch that doesn't any components (the second straight l …

So far I've learned these circuit analysis techniques for: Tellegen's Theorem Using only KCL Using only KVL Solving a system of equations that consist of all KCL equations and all KVL equations Noda …

Both the KCL and KVL equations are required to completely model a resistor network. However, the two main methods to analyze these circuits Nodal analysis and Mesh analysis only use KCL and KVL respec …

My book says the following: As noted previously, every method of circuit analysis must satisfy KVL, KCL, and the device i–v relationships. In developing the node-voltage equations in Eqs. (3–4), i …
