ECE 201 Circuit Theory I1 Assessment Problem # 4.12 Mesh-Current Method Special Case Current Source in a branch

2
ECE 201 Circuit Theory I2 Use the mesh-current method to find the power dissipated in the 1 Ω resistor.

3
ECE 201 Circuit Theory I3 Identify the mesh currents I1I1 I2I2 I3I3

4
ECE 201 Circuit Theory I4 Assign the voltage polarities Identify the voltage @ the 2A source I1I1 I2I2 I3I3 + - + - +- +- +- +- +- V

5
ECE 201 Circuit Theory I5 Write the mesh-current equations (1) I1I1 I2I2 I3I3 + - + - +- +- +- +- +- V V + 2I 1 – 2I 2 = 10

6
ECE 201 Circuit Theory I6 Write the mesh-current equations (2) I1I1 I2I2 I3I3 + - + - +- +- +- +- +- V V + 2I 1 – 2I 2 = 10 -2I 1 +5I 2 -2I 3 = 6
