Q.1.
Find I1, I2, I3. Draw the circuit diagram of each step otherwise you will lose your marks. Write each step of the calculation to get maximum marks and also mention the units of each derived value.

Sol.
Identifying Node 1,2 and 3.

For Node 1 2A – I1+ 12A = 0 I1=14A

For Node 2 -12A + I2 + 14A = 0 I2 + 2A = 0 I2 = -2A For Node 3 -14A + I3 + 4A = 0 I3- 10A = 0 I3 = 10A

Q.2.
Determine I1 to I5 . Draw the circuit diagram of each step otherwise you will lose your marks. Write each step of the calculation to get maximum marks and also mention the units of each derived value.

Sol.
For finding I solve the Circuit.

1Ω || 2 Ω = 1*2/1+2 = 2/3 = 0.67 Ω 4Ω || 0.67 Ω = 4*0.67 / 4+0.67 = 2.68 / 4.67 = 0.57 Ω

0.57 Ω is in series with 3 Ω = 0.57 + 3 = 3.57 Ω

Now find total current through the circuit Itotal= V / R = 40 / 3.57 Itotal = 11.20A From the given circuit we have

Where Itotal = I1= 11.20A To find I2 and I3 we will use current divider rule and their source current will be I1 I2= (R0.67Ω / R4Ω + R0.67Ω ) x I1 I2= (0.67 / 4.67) x 11.20 I2= 1.61A I3= (R4Ω / R4Ω + R0.67Ω ) x I1 I3= (4 / 4.67) x 11.20 I3= 9.60A

To find I4 and I5 , once again we will use current divider rule and their source current will be I3 I4= (R2Ω / R2Ω + R1Ω) x I3 = (2 / 3) x 9.60 I4= 6.4A I5= (R1Ω / R2Ω + R1Ω) x I3 = (1 / 3) x 9.60 I5= 3.2A

Q.3.
Find Req. Draw the circuit diagram of each step otherwise you will lose your marks. Write each step of the calculation to get maximum marks and also mention the units of each derived value.

Sol.
The two 12kΩ are in parallel As 12kΩ || 12kΩ gives = 144 / 24 = 6kΩ At this particular point most of the students commit the following mistake and redraw the circuit as

This technique is wrong because in the above circuit we displace the out put terminal which is connected at Node A form its original position and connect it at C.

The correct circuit will be redrawn as

The 6kΩ is in series with the top 6kΩ gives =6+6 = 12kΩ

This 12kΩ is parallel with 4kΩ = 48 / 16 Req= 3kΩ

Q.1.
Find V10. Draw the circuit diagrams if necessary otherwise you will lose your marks. Write each step of the calculation to get maximum marks and also mention the units of each derived value.

Sol.
20Ω and 5Ω are in series. So the combined effect will be equal to 20Ω+5Ω= 25Ω

1MΩ and 1MΩ are in parallel so same voltage 35v drops across each resistance. Now 35v divides to 10 and 25(sum of 20 and 5) which can be find by voltage division rule.

We know the voltage division formula

⎛ R1 ⎞ V10 = ⎜ ⎜ R + R ⎟V ⎟ 2⎠ ⎝ 1

⎛ 10 ⎞ V10 = ⎜ ⎟ 35 ⎝ 10 + 25 ⎠ ⎛ 10 ⎞ V10 = ⎜ ⎟ 35 ⎝ 35 ⎠ V10 = 10Volts

Q.2.
Find IA Draw the circuit diagrams if necessary to elaborate your point of view otherwise you will lose your marks. Write each step of the calculation to get maximum marks and also mention the units of each derived value.

Sol.
We can redraw the given circuit as

R1=40Ω IS IB Is =10A R2=30Ω

A IA R3 =10Ω

R4 =4Ω

Since 10Ω are in series with 4 Ω so 10 + 4= 14 Ω and the circuit can be redrawn as follow

R1=40Ω IS IB Is =10A R2=30Ω

A IA R3 =14Ω

As the current Is passing through the R1 resistor is 30 A. At the node A current Is divides into IA and IB, so by current division rule,
IA = R2 I − − − − − ( A) R3 + R2 s

we know Is = 10 A R2 = 30Ω and R3 = 14Ω by putting these values in (A) we have, 30 IA = x10 14 + 30 120 = 44 = 6.81A

Q.3.
First Identify and label each node in the network. Use nodal analysis to find voltage VO in the network given below. Draw and labeled complete circuit diagram otherwise you will lose your marks. Write each step of the calculation to get maximum marks and also mention the units of each derived value.

V0 − 30 V0 V0 − V2 + + =0 1 2 4 4 V0 − 120 + 2V0 + V0 − V2 = 0 V2 − 7V0 + 120 = 0 − − − − − − − ( A)

At Super Node As the V2 and V3 made the super node so its equation will be ,

V3 V − V0 −3+ 2 =0 16 4 V3 − 48 + 4 (V2 − V0 ) = 0 V3 − 48 + 4V2 − 4V0 = 0 V3 + 4V2 − 4V0 − 48 = 0 − − − − − − − − − − ( B ) Now coupling equation of Super node will be as
V2 − V3 = 2V0 and V3 = V2 − 2V0 − − − − − (C )

Put this value of V3 in (B), we have
V2 − 2V0 + 4V2 − 4V0 − 48 = 0 5V2 − 6V0 − 48 = 0 6V0 + 48 − − − − − (I ) 5 Put this (I) in (A) we have, V2 =

⎛ 6V0 + 48 ⎞ ⎜ ⎟ − 7V0 + 120 = 0 5 ⎝ ⎠ 6V0 + 48 − 35V0 + 600 = 0 − 29V0 + 648 = 0 − 29V0 = −648 V0 = 648 = 22.34 V 29

KCL equation for the super node is ,

V0 − 12 V0 V1 + + =0 4 6 2 3V0 − 36 + 2V0 + 6V1 =0 12 − − − − − − − − − ( B) 5V0 + 6V1 − 36 = 0
Putting the value of the V1 in the (B)we have

5V0 + 6 ( V0 − 10 ) − 36 = 0 5V0 − 60 + 6V0 − 36 = 0 11V0 − 96 = 0 V0 = 96 = 8.72 Volts Answer 11

Q.2.
Apply Source Transformation on the circuit given below to find I. Show each step of calculation otherwise you will lose your marks. Draw and label the circuit diagram of each step and also mention the units of each derived value.

Sol.

Working circuit using source transformation is a little like a chess or checker game, different people will make different moves to get to the same end. What I see is making a current to voltage to current transformation to the left of a-b then makes a voltage to current transformation to the right of c-d. Then continue current source to one net current source, combine resistors to one resistor then use current division to find I. First Step to the left of a-b

Second Step to the right of c-d

Apply Current division rule I = 1x 5/(5+4) = 5/9 A =0.555A

First step: removing load resistance between point A,B

Second step: Finding Vth Vth is the voltage drop across point A,B of removed resistance. Since terminal A,B and resistance 6Ω are in parallel so the circuit can be redrawn as

Voltage drop across 6Ω will be the Vth which can be find out by using voltage divider formula for series resistance of 6Ω and 4Ω Vth=8x6/6+4=48/10=4.8v

Third step: Finding Rth To find the Rth we short circuit the voltage source
