NODAL AND LOOP (MESH) ANALYSISDate: August 3, 2016Partners name(s)PURPOSE OF THE EXPERIMENTThe purpose of the experiment was to help us validate the branch-current analysis technique (nodal and mesh) throughexperimental measurements. In the experiment, we were supposed to analyze resistive circuits in DC employing thenode-voltage method and mesh-current method. Experimental results will allow the verification of the theoreticalanalysis.LIST OF EQUIPMENT USEDFor this experiment, we were provided with equipment as listed below:BreadboardAnalog Discovery DeviceDigital MultimeterFive Resistors 1 = 1, 2 = 390, 3 = 470, 4 = 220, 5 = 150INTRODUCTIONThe analysis of simple circuits can be accomplished by employing Ohms Law and Kirchhoffs Laws. However, for circuitsthat are structurally more complicated and have more elements, a systematic approach is preferred. The node-voltageand mesh current techniques of circuit analysis covered in this experiment provide an aid in the analysis of morecomplex circuits.THEORYBasic laws such as the Kirchhoffs Laws and Ohms Law can only solve a limited number of variables in circuit analysisand are restricted to analyzing simple circuits. To solve for complex circuits with a single source or circuits with morethan one source that are neither in parallel nor series, there is need to utilize more powerful techniques such as Meshcurrent analysis and Nodal-Vol
