Transcript
Objective of Lecture
 Provide step-by-step instructions for nodal analysis,
which is a method to calculate node voltages and
currents that flow through components in a circuit.
 Chapter 3.1
Basic Engineering Circuit Analysis by
J.D. Irwin and R.M. Nelms
Nodal Analysis
 Technique to find currents at a node using Ohm’s Law,
Kirchhoff’s Current Law, and the potential differences
between nodes.
 First result from nodal analysis is the determination of
node voltages (voltage at nodes referenced to ground).

These voltages are not equal to the voltage dropped across the
resistors.
 Second result is the calculation of the currents
 This is the technique that is employed by PSpice.

Steps in Nodal Analysis
 Pick one node as a reference node
 Its voltage will be arbitrarily defined to be zero
Vin
Step 1
 Pick one node as a reference node
 Its voltage will be arbitrarily defined to be zero
Vin
Step 2
 Label the voltage at the other nodes
Vin
Step 2
 Label the voltage at the other nodes
Vin
Step 3
 Label the currents flowing through each of the
components in the circuit
Step 4
 Use Kirchhoff’s Current Law
I 7  I1  I 2  I 6
I 2  I3  I 4
I 4  I5
I3  I5  I6
Step 5
 Use Ohm’s Law to relate the voltages at each node to
the currents flowing in and out of them.
 Current flows from a higher potential to a lower
potential in a resistor

The difference in node voltage is the magnitude of
electromotive force that is causing a current I to flow.
I  Va  Vb  R
Step 5
We do not write an equation for
I 7 as it is equal to I1
I1  V1  V2  R1
I 2  V2  V3  R2
I 3  V3  V5  R3
I 4  V3  V4  R4
I 5  V4  V5  R5
I 6  V5  0V R6
Step 6
 Solve for the node voltages
 In this problem we know that V1 = Vin
Step 6
 Substitute the equations obtained using Ohm’s Law
into the equations obtained using KCL.
Vin  V2  R1  V2  V3 
R2  V5 R6
V2  V3  R2  V3  V5  R3  V3  V4  R4
V3  V4  R 4  V4  V5  R5
V3  V5  R3  V3  V4  R4  V5
R6
Step 7
 Once the node voltages are known, calculate the
currents.

 Node voltages must have a magnitude less than the sum of the
voltage sources in the circuit
 One or more of the node voltages may have a negative sign
 This depends on which node you chose as your reference node.

Check
 None of the currents should be larger than the current
that flows through the equivalent resistor in series
with the 10V supply.
 Note that this check is only valid if there is one voltage
source in the circuit.

Warning
 I know that you can find the solutions for nodal
analysis using PSpice.
 I know that you can use a graphing calculator,
MATLAB, or other tool to find the solutions.
 You will NOT have access to PSpice, MATLAB, your
graphing calculator, or other tools during the exam at
the end of the semester.
 Make sure that you can solve for the node voltages by
hand using algebra.
