Hi
I have the following situation:
(Please see attached pic)
I want to know if equation (4) i have written is correct.
What is confusing me is that, I remember being told in circuit analysis that each energy storage element should have its own state variable.
But in this situation when I apply KCL at node 1 and using that relationship I am seemingly able to write iL in terms of the other two variables.
I can apply KCL there cant I?
and if I can apply KCL at that node then I can get il = ig + is?
then I can substitute this result in eq1 to get eq4?
But this seems to violate what I have learnt in class of each energy storage element needing its own state variable.
Any help is much appreciated.
Thank you
