Special cases of mesh current method
If a current source is common in two mesh currents
the overall solution becomes simple.
The difference in mesh currents in that case is the value
of the source.

Supermesh
A supermesh is one mesh created from two meshes
that have a current source in common.
At supermesh
-10+1(i1-i3)+3(i2-i3)+2i2=0
At mesh 3
2i3+3(i3-i2)+1(i3-i1)=0
Also i1-i2=5A
Solving them
i2=2.5A,
i1=7.5A
i3=2.5A

Example 4.6-2 [Dorf]
Method # 1
9i1+v-12=0
3i2+6i2-v=0
9i1+9i2=12
Method # 2
9i1+3i2+6i3-12=0
9i1+9i2=12
Using supermesh eliminates
Labeling current source voltage as v.
Applying KVL to both meshes
v from the KVL equations

Node voltage vs Mesh current
Both methods reduce the number of simultaneous
equations required to solve a circuit.
For a given circuit the method that generates least
equations is preferred.
If there is a possibility of a super node then nodal is
preferred and if a super mesh is possible then mesh
current method is the obvious choice.
Students are advised to go through example 4.6 and
4.7

Source transformations
A source transformation is a circuit simplification
method that allow us to transform
Voltage source+ series resistance Current source
+shunt resistance
Suppose load is connected
Apply ohms law to get il.
il=Vs/(R+RL)
Suppose load is connected
il=Ris/(R+RL)
If these circuits are equal they must have same
current flowing through load.

Source transformations
Equating these equations
is=vs/R
If the current in RL is same for both circuits, then the
voltage drop across R is the same and hence, the
circuits are equivalent at output nodes

Example 4.8 [8th ed.]
Find power in 6V source
Circuit has 4 essential nodes
and 6 essential branches.
Either 3 mesh or three node equations are required.
Since we need to measure the power in 6V source
therefore, we will apply source transformation at
40V source.
Step 1 :
Convert 40V

Step 2
Converting back to voltage

Step 3
Converting to current source

Step 4
Converting to voltage source

Power is 4.95 W. (absorbing)
