# Mesh current method

Mesh current method is one of basic methods for solving electrical circuits. Mesh current method is one of method used for electrical network analysis. Mesh current method is based on Kirchhoff’s voltage law. It means that this mesh current method sees only voltage sources. If an electrical circuit contains a current source then it has to be to transformed into virtual voltage source.

## Derivation of mesh current method

Beside knowing how to use mesh current method it will be good to know origin of this method. Below it’s link to completely derivation of mesh current method.

## Mesh current method example 1

Application of mesh current method for electrical circuit which is built from one voltage sources and two current sources. Circuit has also four resistors in its topology.

## Mesh current method example 2

Application of mesh current method for electric AC circuit which is built from one sinusoidal voltage source and sinusoidal current source. Circuit has also resistor, capacitor and inductivity in its topology.

## Mesh current method example 3

Application of mesh current method for electrical circuit which is built from one voltage sources and two current sources. Circuit has also four resistors in its topology.

## Mesh current method example 4

Electrical circuit contains two sinusoidal voltage sources and one sinusoidal current source. Circuit has in its topology also passive parts like resistor, inductivity and capacitors. Mesh current method will be used to calculate branch currents.

## Mesh current method example 5

Application of node voltage method for AC circuit. Electrical circuit is built from: voltage source, current source, inductivity and resistor. In example solved below is also comparison of mesh current method with node voltage method.
