Maxwell's mesh analysis dc circuit

  1. Sep 4, 2011 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Find the value of CSB(current source B) and determine the value of I.

    2. Relevant equations

    Mesh equations

    3. The attempt at a solution


    a -> Ia = 0
    b -> 11Ib = -12
    c -> 6Ic = 12
    d -> 2Id = -8
    e -> Ie = -CSB

    Ic = 2 A
    Id = -4 A

    then I cannot further continue this one... :(

    Your diagram indicates CSA = 8V, but isn't it a current source? Or is this supposed to represent the voltage that the current source happens to be producing in order to maintain its (unspecified) current?
