Kirchoff's Current Law (KCL): The algebraic sum of currents at a node in an electrical circuit is equal to zero.
Kirchoff's Voltage Law (KVL): ln any closed loop electrical circuit, the algebraic sum of voltage drops across all the circuit elements is equal to EMF rise in the same.
Mesh Analysis: In the mesh analysis, a current is assigned to each window of the network such that the currents complete a closed loop. They are also referred to as loop currents. Each element and branch therefore will have an independent current. When a branch has two of the mesh currents, the actual current is given by their algebraic sum. Once the currents are assigned, Kirchhoff s voltage law is written for each of the loops to obtain the necessary simultaneous equations. The simultaneous equations obtained can be solved using matrix inversion method or crammer's rule.
Mesh Analysis (using super mesh): When two of the loops have a common element as a current source, mesh analysis is not applied to both loops separately. Instead both the loops are merged and a super mesh is formed. Now KVL is applied to super mesh.
Nodal Analysis: Typically, electrical networks contain several nodes, where some are simple nodes and some are principal nodes, ln the node voltage method, one of the principal nodes is selected as the reference and equations based on KCl are written at the other principal nodes with respect to the reference node. At each of these other principal nodes, a voltage is assigned, where it is understood that this voltage is with respect to the reference node. These voltage are the unknowns and are determined by nodal Analysis. When the node voltages to be found by nodal analysis are more than one, the node voltages can be found from simultaneous equations by matrix inversion method or Cramer's rule.
Nodal analysis (including super node): When two of the nodes have a common element as a voltage source, nodal analysis is not applied to both the nodes separately. Instead both the nodes are merged and a super node is formed. Now KCL is applied to super node.
Voltage /Current Source
Ideal vs. Practical voltage source
Here E is the EMF of source and Rj is the internal resistance of the source. For an ideal source, Ri is zero and for a practical source, Rx is finite and small.
Ideal vs. Practical current source
Here 1 is the current of source and R_{i} is internal resistance of source. For an ideal current source, R_{i} is infinite and for a practical source, R_{i} is finite and large.
Dependent Sources: A source is called dependent if voltage / current of the source depends on voltage / current in some other part of the network. Depending upon the nature of the source, dependent sources can be classified as below.
Superposition theorem: In a linear bilateral network, the current through or voltage across any element is equal to algebraic sum of currents through (or voltages across) the elements when each of the independent sources are acting alone, provided each of the independent sources are replaced by corresponding internal resistances.
Source conversion theorem: Source conversion theorem states that a voltage source, B in series with resistance, R_{i} as seen from terminals a and b is equivalent to a current source, I = R/R_{i} in parallel with resistance, R_{i}.
Thevenin’s and Norton's Theorems: Any linear/bilateral network as viewed from terminals A and B can be replaced by a voltage source in series with resistance. The theorem is mainly helpful to draw the load characteristics (output voltage v/s output current as load resistance is varied).
In the figure shown above, V_{th} is Thevenin's voltage as viewed from terminal A & B and R_{th} is Thevenin's resistance as viewed from terminals A & B.
Norton's Theorem: Any linear / bilateral network, as viewed from terminals A and B, can be replaced by a current source in parallel with resistance. When source conversion theorem is applied for a Thevenin's equivalent circuit, Norton equivalent circuit is obtained and vice versa.
Let l_{n} = Norton current as between terminals A & B and
R_{n} = Norton Resistance as viewed from terminals A & B
Evaluation of Thevenin's / Norton's equivalent circuit:
Let V_{oc} = open circuit voltage between terminals A & B,
I_{sh} = short  circuit current between terminals A & B,
R = Resistance as viewed from terminals A & B,
Where V_{AB} is the voltage for a current source, I_{AB} between the terminals A and B.
Maximum power transfer theorem (as applied to dc network): Maximum power transfer theorem in a dc network states a condition on load resistance for which the maximum power is transferred to the load resistance. In a dc network, maximum power is transferred to the load when the load resistance is equal to Thevenin's ( / Norton's) resistance as viewed from load terminals.
For maximum power transfer, R_{L} = R
Total power consumed in the circuit =
StarDelta transformation:
McMillan Theorem: McMillan theorem can be applied to the circuits of the form shown and is based on nodal analysis.
Substitution theorem: Substitution theorem can be used to get incremental change in voltage/current of any circuit element when a resistance R is changed by AR and the same can be found by inserting a voltage source  I. ΔR in series with R.
Reciprocity theorem: Reciprocity theorem states that in a linear bilateral network, voltage source and current sink can be interchanged.
Following are the conditions to be satisfied to apply reciprocity theorem
Circuit which satisfies above conditions is called 'Reciprocity network".
Transient response analysis of network elements
Transient analysis of a resistive circuit
Any change in voltage across a resistor at any instant t is instantaneously felt as corresponding change in current at the same instant t. Consider the circuit below in which S is moved from position 1 to 2 at t = 0.
∴ Resistor allows abrupt changes in voltage and current.
Transient response of inductor
The voltage across and current through an inductor are related by following equation
Also inductor doesn't allow abrupt change in current and for a abrupt change in current inductor requires infinite voltage to be applied across it. Also at steady state, inductor acts as short
∴ i_{L}(t^{+}) = i_{L}(t^{}), at every instant t
Transient response of Capacitor
The voltage across or current through a capacitor are related by,
The voltage across a capacitor cannot change instantaneously unless infinite current (impulse) is passed through it. Hence capacitor doesn't allow abrupt change in voltage across it. Also at steady state, capacitor acts as open.
∴ v_{c} (t^{}) = v_{c}(t^{+}) at every instant t
Transient response of a RL circuit
Consider the R  L circuit shown below, in which switch S is moved from position 1 to 2 at t = 0.
As V_{L}(0^{+}) ≠ V_{L}(0^{}), inductor allows abrupt change in voltage. Also, l(0^{+}) = I(0^{}) as inductor does not allow abrupt change in current. Consider a R  L circuit which contains only one inductor and more than one resistor as shown.
To find i_{L}(t) for t ≥ 0 in the circuit shown above,
Transient response of a RC circuit: Consider the R C circuit shown below, in which switch S is moved from position 1 to position 2 at t = 0.
As I(0^{+}) ≠ I(0^{}), capacitor allows abrupt change in current. Also, V_{c} (0^{+}) = V_{c} (0^{}) as capacitor doesn't allows abrupt change in voltage. Consider a R C circuit which contains only one capacitor and more than one resistor as shown.
To find V_{c} (t) for t ≥ 0

Here A_{1,} A_{2} can be found using initial conditions.
Transient response analysis of a source free parallel R L C circuit
Generalization of response f (t) for an excitation g (t)
In any general RLC circuit, let f(t) be the response for an excitation g(t). The response f(t) can be generalized as below.
∴ f(t) = f_{f}(t) + f_{n}(t)
Here, f_{n}(t) is called natural response and is found based on initial conditions assuming no source is present and f_{f}(t) is called forced response which is derived based on source of excitation.
Phasor representation
Any sinusoidal representation, V(t) = V_{m} sin(ωt + ∅) can be represented in phasor form as,
For phasor analysis of V_{1}(t) and V_{2}(t), following conditions should be satisfied,
Impedance
Sinusoidal excitation of different components
Excitation to resistor
Excitation to Inductor
Sinusoidal excitation to Capacitor
Sinusoidal excitation to RL circuit
Excitation to RC Circuit
Root mean square (rms) value of a periodic signal
The rms value of a periodic signal is defined as equivalent dc signal which will consume same power as periodic signal. If V (t) is a periodic signal of period T,
Consider a signal, V'(t) =
Average value of a periodic signal
Average value of a periodic signal gives an idea about d.c. content of the signal. If V(t) is signal of period T,
Average power supplied by a.c. source
Apparent power,
Active power,
Reactive power,
Active power is the power supplied to resistive part of the network and is measured in watt. Reactive power is the power supplied to inductive or capacitive part of the network and is measured in var. Power factor (PF) of circuit as seen from source is given as cos (θ  ∅). Pf gives an idea about part of VA supplied to resistive part of network.
Resonance
At resonance, voltage and current as seen from supply are in phase. Also at resonance, impedance as seen from supply is completely resistive.
Single phase Circuit analysis
Most of the analysis techniques used for dc networks can be used for ac networks also. However, algebraic operations should be replaced by phasor operations and all the theorems can be relevantly applied.
Maximum Power transfer theorem
Maximum power transfer theorem gives an idea about the maximum power consumed in Z_{L} depending on the nature of Z_{L}. Consider an a.c. network and corresponding Thevenin's equivalent as seen from load terminals A and B as shown in figure below.
Depending nature of Z_{L} and 2_{th}, following are the possible cases and corresponding conditions for maximum power transfer,
(1) If Z_{th} and Z_{L} are resistive, Z_{L} = Z_{th}.
(2) If Z_{th} and Z_{L} are impedance, Z_{L}=
(3) If Z_{th} is complex and Z_{L} is resisitive, Z_{L} = Z_{th}.
(4) If Z_{L}= R_{L} + JX_{L} such that X_{L} is fixed and R_{L} is variable, then, R_{L} = Z_{th} + JX_{L}.
(5) If Z_{L} = R_{L }+ JX_{L} is such that R_{L} is fixed and X_{L} is variable, then X_{L} = lm(Z_{th}).
(6) If Z_{L} = R_{L} + JX_{L} is such that 0 = tan^{1} (X_{L}/R_{L}) is constant and is varied, then Z_{L} = Z_{th}.
(7) For any arbitrary nature of Z_{L} and Z_{th}, appropriate value of Z_{L} can be found using Lagrange's optimization.

Polyphase Circuit Analysis
Single phase three wire system
The wire nN is neutral wire. So if the load is balanced, current in neutral wire is zero. If the wires aA and bB have same impedance, still current in neutral wire is 0. If loads are unbalanced and Nn wire has some finite impedance, power dissipated in nN is finite.
Three phase source
Consider a balanced supply as shown,
Three phase YY Connection including neutral (for balanced 3∅ supply)
Let V_{L}, 1_{L}, V_{ph} and l_{ph} stand for line voltage, line current, load voltage and load current.
If load is balanced, Z_{A} = Z_{B} = Z_{C} = Z_{ph}∠∅
Power consumed by load =
∴ If the load is balanced, neutral wire can be removed as is zero.
If load is not balanced,
Power consumed by load = (if load is not balanced)
Three Phase Y  Δ Connection: (for balanced 3∅ supply)
If the load is balanced, Z_{A} = Z_{B} = Z_{C} = Z_{ph} ∠∅

If the load is not balanced, Power consumed by load, P =
Magnetically Coupled circuits
Two circuits are magnetically coupled, if operation of one circuit is effected by flux linkage due to coil in another circuit. In a magnetically coupled circuit, "Current entering dotted terminal of one coil will produce a voltage which is sensed positive at the dotted terminals of another coil and vice versa". So voltage across one coil depends not only on self inductance, but also on mutual inductance which gives extent of flux linkage between the two coils. Please note that dot convention doesn't make sense when it's associated with single coil.
As the flux linkage in coil 1 due to the coil 2 is same as flux linkage in coil 2 due to coil 1, m_{12} = m_{21} = m
Also coefficient of coupling, K = m / Here 0 ≤ K ≤ l ⇒ 0 ≤ m ≤
Coefficient of coupling is in 0, 1 as flux linkage in one coil due to current in other coil will always be less than the flux produced by the same.

Let H(S) has poles at p_{i}, i = 1; .......... n.
Here constant A_{i} can be found based on initial conditions. Above analysis can be used in RLC circuits to get voltage/current response at any time t.
Locus of phasors: Given any response G(S)P substitute S=σ+Jω to get generalized phasor of G(S). Locus of G(S) can be obtained by varying σ and ω. Thus the locus gives an idea about the phasor at different frequencies.
Circuit analysis at a generalized frequency: Any circuit can be generalized to operate at a frequency, S=σ+Jω. For dc signals, σ = 0 and ω = 0 and for ac signals, σ = 0. Let V(t) = V_{m}e^{σt}.cos(ωt+∅) be the input to a network shown below and let the response be i(t) = I_{m}e^{σt}cos(ωt + θ). We see that have a frequency of S = σ + Jω. In phasor form, the circuit can be represented as below,
