Hi everyone,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I currently stumped in the process of approaching a dependent voltage source problem using node voltages. Attached is the circuit.

What I know:

the Node north of the 60V supply with also be 60V

there are four nodes, two when supernodes are used

What I'm confused about:

with the super node being the 6iψ, KCL states the sums must be zero

when I try to solve, I end up getting the equation (using v2 as the junction of the dependent, and both 3Ω resistors):

[(60-v1)/2]+[(V2-V3)/3]+[V2/3]=0

I am not sure how to calculate the current across the 60Volt source

In addition, I end up having a recursion problem trying to solve for iψ

Since V2 is 60+6iψ, and iψ is ([V2-V2]/3), I end up with

V2=60+6([V2-V3]/3)

any help would be greatly appreciated

Joe
