Ch 8 Glossary

QuestionAnswer
Branch-current method A technique for determining the branch currents of a multiloop network.
Bridge network A network configuration typically having a diamond appearance in which no two elements are in series or parallel.
Current sources Sources that supply a fixed current to a network and have a terminal voltage dependent on the network to which they are applied.
Delta (∆), pi (π) configuration A network structure that consists of three branches and has the appearance of the Greek letter delta (∆) or pi (π).
Determinants method A mathematical technique for finding the unknown variables of two or more simultaneous linear equations.
Mesh analysis A technique for determining the mesh (loop) currents of a network that results in a reduced set of equations compared to the branch-current method.
Mesh (loop) current A labeled current assigned to each distinct closed loop of a network that can, individually or in combination with other mesh currents, define all of the branch currents of a network.
Nodal analysis A technique for determining the nodal voltages of a network.
Node A junction of two or more branches in a network.
Supermesh current A current defined in a network with ideal current sources that permits the use of mesh analysis.
Supernode A node defined in a network with ideal voltage sources that permits the use of nodal analysis.
Wye (Y), tee (T) configuration A network structure that consists of three branches and has the appearance of the capital letter Y or T.
