Quick Question: Can we use still use Nodal Analysis if we simplify a circuit using Delta to Wye?

I think my textbook is trying to imply that I can't, or at least not always. Does that mean Delta to Wye specifically helps with Mesh Loop analysis?

Why wouldn't you be able to?

Do you understand what nodal analysis IS? It is nothing more than a formalized way of applying KCL to a circuit. Similarly, mesh analysis is nothing more than a formalized way of applying KVL to a circuit.

What is your textbook saying that you think is implying that you can't?
