The gkk terms are the sum of all conductances connected to node k. The ik (the kth component of the vector i) = the algebraic sum of the independent currents connected to node k. The gkj terms are the negative sum of the conductances connected to BOTH node k and node j. gkj = gjk and all of the off-diagonal terms are negative or zero. with currents entering the 4 node taken as positive. .Writing the Nodal Equations by Inspection v1 v3 i1 v2 i5 i3  G1  G2   G2   0 G2 G2  G3  G4 G3 0    v1    G3  v2  G3  G5    v3  Gv  i  2    0  i  s •The matrix G is symmetric.
