    Can you give us an example problem? It might help to have some idea of what you have in mind.

    a super mesh situation arises when one mesh contains a current source in its path. the way to work around it is to go around the "super mesh" and apply kvl in the supermesh. the super mesh is a loop formed by those mesh tht had the current source common to them. this way the voltage across the current source need not be taken
    such a method is usually not necessary. one can assume a voltage v across the current source and then write to normal mesh equation and then eliminate the assumed variable v between the 2 equations.. the results are the same

    I have seen a similar question regarding super meshes appear before on the forums, see here.

    haditya,

    Can you provide a link to an example of a super mesh?

    hmmm webpage for supermeshes and supernodes i havnt come across.. ll post it as soon as i come across one
    meanwhile if you hav access to books you may see Engineering Circuit Analysis by Hayt and Kemmerly. it does hav a discussion on supernodes and supermeshes

    There is some useful information about supernodes on page 9 of this pdf (from the above link I posted).
