Basic Concepts: In formulating mesh analysis we assign a mesh
current to each mesh. Mesh currents are sort of fictitious in that a particular
mesh current does not define the current in each branch
of the mesh to which it is assigned.

Slide 3:

A circuit for illustrating mesh analysis. Eq 1 Around mesh 1:

Slide 4:

Eq 2 Eq 3 Eq 4

Slide 5:

We are left with 2 equations: From (1) and (4)
we have, Eq 5 Eq 6 We can easily solve these equations for I1 and I2.

Slide 6:

The previous equations can be written in matrix form as: Eq (7) Eq (8)

Slide 7:

Mesh Analysis: Example 1. Write the mesh equations and solve for the currents I1, and I2. Circuit for Example 1. Mesh 1 4I1 + 6(I1 – I2) = 10 - 2 Mesh 2 6(I2 – I1) + 2I2 + 7I2 = 2 + 20 Eq (9) Eq (10)

Slide 8:

Mesh Analysis: Example 1, continued. Simplifying Eq (9) and (10) gives, 10I1 – 6I2 = 8

Mesh Analysis: Example 2 Solve for the mesh currents in the circuit below. Circuit for Example 2. The plan: Write KVL, clockwise, for each mesh. Look for a
pattern in the final equations.

Mesh Analysis: Example 7.2 Clearing Equations (13), (14) and (15) gives, 20I1 – 4I2 – 10I3 = 30 -4I1 + 18I2 – 11I3 = -18 -10I1 – 11I2 + 30I3 = 20 In matrix form: WE NOW MAKE AN IMPORTANT
OBSERVATION!! Standard Equation form

Slide 12:

Mesh Analysis: Standard form for mesh equations Consider the following: R11 = of resistance around mesh 1, common to mesh 1 current I1. R22 = of resistance around mesh 2, common to mesh 2 current I2. R33 = of resistance around mesh 3, common to mesh 3 current I3.

Slide 13:

Mesh Analysis: Standard form for mesh equations R12 = R21 = - resistance common between mesh 1 and 2
when I1 and I2 are opposite through R1,R2. R13 = R31 = - resistance common between mesh 1 and 3
when I1 and I3 are opposite through R1,R3. R23 = R32 = - resistance common between mesh 2 and 3
when I2 and I3 are opposite through R2,R3. = sum of emf around mesh 1 in the direction of I1. = sum of emf around mesh 2 in the direction of I2. = sum of emf around mesh 3 in the direction of I3.

Slide 15:

Mesh Analysis: With current sources in the circuit Example 4: Consider the following: Circuit diagram for Example 4. Use the direct method to write the mesh equations.

Slide 16:

Mesh Analysis: With current sources in the circuit This case is explained by using an example.
Example 4: Find the three mesh currents in the circuit below. Circuit for Example 4. When a current source is present, it will be directly related to
one or more of the mesh current. In this case I2 = -4A.

Slide 17:

Mesh Analysis: With current sources in the circuit Example 4: Continued. An easy way to handle this case is to
remove the current source as shown below. Next, write the mesh
equations for the remaining meshes. Note that I 2 is retained for writing the equations through the
5 and 20 resistors.

Slide 18:

Mesh Analysis: With current sources in the circuit Example 4: Continued. Equation for mesh 1: 10I1 + (I1-I2)5 = 10 or 15I1 – 5I2 = 10 Equations for mesh 2: 2I3 + (I3-I2)20 = 20 or - 20I2 + 22I3 = 20 Constraint Equation I2 = - 4A

Slide 19:

Mesh Analysis: With current sources in the circuit Example 4: Continued. Express the previous equations in
Matrix form: I1 = -0.667 A I2 = - 4 A I3 = - 2.73 A
