    Hi,
    I want to calculate current through circuit shown in attached file.

    Actually i want the formula or the way/method to calculate it.
    The parallel combination confusing me.

    V5,V6 are diode forward voltage drops.

    The voltage drops,resistor values used only for easy calculation.

    I would define a current I1 and I2 going thru each parallel branch, and note by inspection that I1 = I2.

    Then a simple loop equation will tell everything:

    {source V} = {drop 1} + {drop 2} + ... + {drop n}

    10V = (I1 * 2ohms - 1V) + (2*I1 * 1ohm)

    Below is the simplified circuit in which am suppose to calculate total current.

    If we consider diode Vf as 1V and transistor Vce = 0.7V, Vbe = 0.5V for calculation,and the transistor is in ON condition,

    how to calculate total current flowing through three loops i.e. through R1,R2,D1,U1,D2,R4 and through R5,R6,U1,D2,R4 and R5,R3,D2,R4 loops.
