We see that either of the loop-current and node-voltage methods requires to solve a linear system of 3 equations with 3 unknowns. Imagine having a pipe through which a fluid is flowing with the volumetric flow rate Q 1. We assume node is the ground, and consider just voltage at node as the only unknown in the problem. We could also apply KCL to node d, but the resulting equation is exactly the same as simply because this node d is not independent.

Replacing the values of the resistances and electromotive force, we get the value of I c:. Find the three unknown currents and three unknown voltages in the circuit below: I like the way you have describe the article.

Kirchhoff’s Current and Voltage Law (KCL and KVL) with Xcos example –

In the Electrical Palette within Xcos we are going to use the: Let the three loop currents in the example above beand for loops 1 top-left bacb2 top-right adcaand 3 bottom bcdbrespectively, and applying KVL to the three loops, exxamples get.

First we run the Scilab instructions, second we simulate the Xcos diagram. The direction of a current and the polarity of a voltage source can be assumed arbitrarily.

The dual form of the Millman’s theorem can be derived based on the loop circuit on the right.

Kirchhoff’s Current and Voltage Law (KCL and KVL) with Xcos example

For each of the independent loops in the circuit, define a loop current around the loop in clockwise or counter clockwise direction. It has two loops, A and Bexamplss two nodes, C and D. Apply KVL around each of the loops in the same clockwise direction to obtain equations. Exampes the equation system with equations for the unknown loop currents. It can be also written in the form: The direction of each is toward node a. The electrical circuit has two loops, A and Band two nodes, C and D.

The node consists of 4 wires, each with an electrical current passing through.


The voltage at each of the remaining nodes is an unknown to be obtained. Applying KVL to the loop, we have: Apply KCL to nodewe have.

These loop currents are the unknown variables to be obtained. Also the values of the currents and voltages are calculated in Scilab for a further verification with the script:. If node d is chosen as ground, we can apply KCL to the remaining 3 nodes at a, b, and c, and get assuming all currents leave each node: We take advantage of the fact that the current source is in loop 1 only, and assume to get the following two loop equations with 2 unknown loop currents and instead of 3: Solve the equation system with equations for the unknown node voltages.

For example, a current labeled in left-to-right direction with a negative value is actually flowing right-to-left. Assume three loop currents leftrighttop all in clock-wise direction. An electrical circuit can contain at least one or more closed loops mesh, network. Find currents from a to b, from eaxmples to b, and from b to d. Select one of them as the ground, the reference point for all voltages of the circuit.

Alternatively, consider the two loop currents and around loops abda and bcdb: Even if the wires are connected to different electrical components coil, resistor, voltage source, etc. Assume there are three types of branches: Solve the following circuit: With the arrows is defined the positive flow of the electrical current.


While calculating the voltage drop across each resistor shared by two loops, both loop currents in opposite positions should be considered.

Solving Circuits with Kirchoff Laws

All voltages and currents in the circuit can be found by either of the following two methods, based on either the KVL or KCL. The first step is to highlight the currents flowing through the wires and the voltage drop across every component resistor.

We could also apply KVL around the third loop of abcda with a loop current to get three equations: The loop-current method based on KVL: As special case ckl the node-voltage method with only two nodes, we have the following theorem: Assume the three node voltages with respect to the bottom node treated as ground to be leftmiddleright.

Solve the following circuit with. We take the advantage of the fact that one side of the voltage source is treated as ground, the note voltage on the other side becomes known, and we get the following two node equations with 2 unknown node voltages and instead of 3: For this example we will consider that: To determine the esamples direction and polarity, the sign andd the values also should be considered.

In the exwmples circuit considered previously, there are only 2 nodes and note and are not nodes.

We have only one KCL equation because, for node Dthe same electrical current relationship applies. This circuit has 3 independent loops and 3 independent nodes.

The node-voltage method based on KCL: Assume two loop currents and around loops abda and bcdb and apply the KVL to them: Applying KCL to nodewe kvl Real world applications electric circuits are, most of the time, quite complex and hard to analyze.
