3.3 Nodal Analysis with Voltage Sources
 Case 1: The voltage source is connected between a
nonreference node and the reference node: The
nonreference node voltage is equal to the
magnitude of voltage source and the number of
unknown nonreference nodes is reduced by one.
 Case 2: The voltage source is connected between
two nonreferenced nodes: a generalized node
(supernode) is formed.

3.7 Nodal Versus Mesh Analysis
 Both nodal and mesh analyses provide a systematic
way of analyzing a complex network.
 The choice of the better method dictated by two
factors.
● First factor : nature of the particular network. The key
is to select the method that results in the smaller
number of equations.
● Second factor : information required.
