Hi everyone,
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):
[(60v1)/2]+[(V2V3)/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 ([V2V2]/3), I end up with
V2=60+6([V2V3]/3)
any help would be greatly appreciated
