Ch 8 Glossary

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.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
