MODULE-I D.C NETWORKS 1.1 Kirchoff’s Laws:1.1.1. Kirchoff’s current law or point law (KCL) Statement:- In any electrical network, the algebraic sum of the currents meeting at a point is zero. Σ I = 0 ……………………at a junction or node Assumption:- Incoming current = positive Outgoing current = negative 1.1.2. Kirchoff’s voltage law or mesh law (KVL) Statement:- The algebraic sum of the products of currents and resistances in each of the conductors in any closed path (or mesh) in a network plus the algebraic sum of the emfs in that path is zero. Σ IR +Σemf = 0 …………………………..round the mesh Assumption:- i) Rise in voltage (If we go from negative terminal of the battery to positive terminal) = positive ii) Fall in voltage (If we go from positive terminal of the battery to negative terminal) = negative iii) If we go through the resistor in the same direction as current then there is a fall in potential. Hence this voltage is taken as negative. iv)If we go through the resistor against the direction of current then there is a rise in potential. Hence this voltage drop is taken as positive.
Example:- Write the loop equation for the given circuit below (Supplementary exam 2004) r1 E1 i r2 E2 E3 r3 Solution: Apply KVL to the loop, − ir1 − E 1 − ir2 + E 2 − ir3 − E 3 = 0 ⇒ E 1 − E 2 + E 3 = − ir1 − ir2 − ir3 ⇒ E 1 − E 2 + E 3 = − i ( r1 + r2 + r3 ) 1.2. MAXWELL’S LOOP CURRENT METHOD (MESH ANALYSIS) Statement:- This method determines branch currents and voltages across the elements of a network. The following process is followed in this method:• Here, instead of taking branch currents (as in Kirchoff’s law) loop currents are taken which are assumed to flow in the clockwise direction. • Branch currents can be found in terms of loop currents • Sign conventions for the IR drops and battery emfs are the same as for Kirchoff’s law. • This method is easier if all the sources are given as voltage sources. If there is a current source present in a network then convert it into equivalent voltage source.
