Kirchhoff's Current Law (KCL) and Kirchhoff's Voltage Law (KVL)

FondamentalKirchhoff's Current Law (KCL) and Kirchhoff's Voltage Law (KVL)

These laws are written in the form (see figure) :

  • Kirchhoff's current law :

  • Kirchhoff's voltage law :

Kirchhoff's current law (KCL) and Kirchhoff's voltage law (KVL)

ComplémentPouillet's law

The KVL gives :

We deduce the intensity in the circuit (this is the Pouillet's law) :
