    Could anyone give me a link that explains or simply explain to me how the dot convention on the mutual inductance works? For example, I'm trying to draw an equivalent circuit that converts the dots into voltage sources of this circuit:

    But I can't seem to figure it out completely. I think a voltage source can be put between I1 and I2 that delivers j2 * I2 volts and another one can be put after the j8 inductor that delivers j2 (I1 - I2) volts but I am not sure.

    Thanks a lot!

    What steps have you tried to answer this question for yourself?

    Have you, for instance, done a Google search for, say, "dot convention"?
