From Mesh I1:
According to KVL
Sum of all the voltage drop = sum of all the voltage rise
3I1 + 6[I1 – I2] = 12
3I1 + 6I1 – 6I2 = 12

## 9I1 – 6I2 = 12 -----------------(A)

I2 = 2 mA
Substituting the value of I2 in Equation (A)
9I1 – 6[2 mA] = 12
9I1 – 12 = 12
9I1 = 24

I1 = 2.667 mA

## V0 = 2I2 + 6[I2 – I1]

V0 = 2I2 + 6I2 – 6I1
V0 = 8I2 – 6I1

V0 = 8[2 ] – 6[2.667 ]
V0 = 16 – 16.002

V0 = -0.002 V

1[I1 – I2] + 1I1 = 12
1I1 – 1I2 + 1I1 = 12
2I1 – 1I2 = 12
Substituting the value of I2
2I1 – 1[-2] = 12
2I1 + 2 = 12
2I1 = 10

I1 = 5 mA

## From Mesh I3:

According to KVL

1I3 + 1[I3 – I2] = -12
1I3 + 1I3 – 1I2 = -12
2I3 – 1I2 = -12
Substituting the value of I2
2I3 – 1 [-2 mA] = -12
2I3 + 2 = -12
2I3 = -12-2
2I3 = -14

I3 = -7 mA

## V0 = 1 [I3 – I2] + 1 [I1 – I2]

⎛ V − V2 + 120 ⎞ V2
Substitute (E) into (D): 3⎜ 1 ⎟= ---------------- (F)
⎝ 40 ⎠ 80

## Solving (C) and (F)

vo = V2 = -1344V,
V1 = -1688V
so, io = (V1 –V2 + 120)/40 = -5.6A

There is a CCCS between mesh 2 and 3, so Mesh 2 and Mesh 3 form a SuperMesh:

## KVL For SuperMesh :

− 4V0 + ( I 2 − I 1 )(20) + I 2 (40) − 120 + ( I 3 )(80) = 0 ---------- (4)
Sub. (2) into (4):
− 4( I 3 )(80) + ( I 2 − I 1 )(20) + I 2 (40) − 120 + ( I 3 )(80) = 0 ------- (5)

Constraint equation: 2I 0 = I 3 − I 2
Since,
I 0 = I 2 , so 2 I 2 = I 3 − I 2 ---------- (6)

Solve (3), (5) and (6), i1 = 178.8A, i2 = -5.6A, i3 = -16.8A, vo = 80(i3) = -1344V

2000I1 + 4000I1 – 4000I2 = 2000Ix
6000I1 – 4000I2 = 2000Ix
Here
I2 = Ix
6000I1 – 4000I2 = 2000[I2]
6000I1 – 4000I2 - 2000I2 = 0
6000I1 – 6000I2 = 0
6000[I1 – I2] = 0

I1 – I2 = 0 ……….… (A)

## From Mesh I2:

According to KVL
Sum of all the voltage drop = sum of all the voltage rise
2000I2 + 4000[I2 – I1] = 6
2000I2 + 4000I2 – 4000I1 = 6
6000I2 – 4000I1 = 6
2[3000I2 – 2000I1] = 6
3000I2 – 2000I1 = 3
From equation (A)
I1 = I2

= 16 kΩ

Parallel combination

12 kΩ × 16 kΩ

Parallel combination

12 kΩ × 4 kΩ

I2:
According to KVL
Sum of all the voltage drop = sum of all the voltage rise
12000I2 + 4000[I2 – I1] = 12
12000I2 + 4000I2 – 4000I1 = 12
16000I2 – 4000I1 = 12
Rearranging

## Adding equations (B) & (C)

-4000I1 + 16000I2 = 12
40000I1 – 16000I2 = 156

36000I1 = 168

I1 = 4.667 mA

## Substituting the value of I1 in equation (B)

-4000[4.667 mA] + 16000I2 = 12
-18.668 + 16I2 = 12
16I2 = 30.667

I2 = 1.91 mA

I4k = I1 – I2
I4k = 4.667 mA – 1.91 mA

I4k = 2.757 mA

Q.3.
The circuit shown in figure below utilize four identical diodes having n=1 and Is =10-14 A.
Find the value to obtain an output voltage Vo=3V, if a current of 1mA is drawn away from
the output terminal by a load, what is the change in output voltage.

Sol.
For V =3V, so the voltage drop across each diode is 3/4 V= 0.75V
0
Thus I must be
v/nVT
I = Is e
VT= 25 mV=0.025 volts
-14 0.75/0.025
= 10 e
=106.86mA
If a current of 1mA is drawn away from the terminals by means of a load, the current
though the diodes reduces to
106.86 – 1 = 105.86
Thus the voltage across each diode changes by
I=105.68mA VD = 0.025 ln(105.68 x 10-3 / 10-14)

VD = 0.749V
So
∆V =0.75V- 0.749V =0.0010
The total decrease in V
0
V = 4 x 0.0010
0
= 0.0040v

Q.4.
Determine the dc load voltage for the circuit shown below.

Sol.
Primary voltage is in rms so we can calculate the peak voltage
V =V /0.707
1(pk) rms
= 45/0.707
= 63.65V
pk
Primary voltage and turn ratio is known so we can determine the secondary voltage
V =(N2/N1)V
2(pk) 1pk
=1/5 (63.65)
=12.73V
pk
Now load voltage can be calculated as
V = V /2 – 0.7
L(pk) 2
= 12.73/2 -0.7
= 5.67V
pk
Now dc value of the voltage can be calculated as
V = 2V /Π
ave L(pk)
= 0.636V
L(pk)
= 0.636(5.67)
= 3.609 Vdc

Q.1.
For the circuit shown in the figure below, both diodes are identical, conducting 10mA at 0.7V and 100mA
at 0.8V. Find the value of R for which V=80mV

Sol.

## It is told that D1 ,D2 conduct 10mA @ 0.7V and 100mA @ 0.8V

We know that lni2/i1 = V2-V1/nVT
nVT = V2-V1 / ln (i2/i1)
= 0.8-0.7 / ln10 = 0.0434
From the above figure
i1+ i2 = 10mA -------- (I)
V = Ri1

Where V=80mV
0.08 = Ri1 -------- (II)

V1/0.0434
i1 = Is e -------- (A)
V2/0.0434
i2 = Is e ---------- (B)
where, V2= V1 + 0.08 put this value in (B)

i2 = Is e (V1 + 0.08)/0.0434
= Is eV1 /0.0434 (e0.08/0.0434)
From (A) we have
i2 = i1 6.3175
From eq(I) we have,
i1 + 6.3175i1 = 10
i1 = 10/7.3175 = 1.366mA
From eq (II) we have,
R = 80mV/ 1.36mA = 58.8Ω

Q.2.
For the circuits shown in figure below, using the constant voltage-drop (V D =0.7V) diode model, find the
voltages and currents indicated.

Sol.

## (A) Diode FB by inspection,

I = {3-(-3 +0.7)}/10 = 530 µA =0.53mA

## Diode FB , so replace by 0.7V source ⇒ V=3 – (0.53mA) (10k)= -2.3V

(B) Diode RB by inspection,
Diode ≡ Open circuit ⇒ V=+3V
I = 0 (same as ideal diode)
(C) Diode On by inspection, 0.7V drop
I = {3- 0.7) –(-3)}/10 = 530 µA =0.53mA

⇒ V= -3 + (10k)(0.53mA)= 2.3V

## (D) Diode Off by inspection,

Diode ≡ Open circuit ⇒ V=-3V
I = 0 (same as ideal diode)
