Hi,

I have this "simple" circuit that contains a constant current source, resistor, and a current-controlled voltage source.

I decided to use a mesh analysis.

And my mesh equations

And the values are

And the problem begins when I set

It seems that "right" answer is Ix = Iin = 4mA (R2 = 0Ω). Maybe I'm misinterpreting this.

What do you think about it?

And my mesh equations

**Ia = Iin**(1)**(Ix - Ia)*R1 - V + Ix*R2 = 0**(2)**(Ix - Iin)*R1 - p * (Ix - Iin) + Ix*R2 = 0**

Ix = (Iin (p - R1))/(p - R1 - R2)Ix = (Iin (p - R1))/(p - R1 - R2)

And the values are

**Iin = 4mA**;**R1 = 1kΩ**;**R2 = 500Ω**;**p = 1kΩ**And the problem begins when I set

**R2**to**0Ω**. And try to find**Ix**current. And I don't get any solution at all. Why is that?It seems that "right" answer is Ix = Iin = 4mA (R2 = 0Ω). Maybe I'm misinterpreting this.
