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.
