I'm currently learning the stated methods for solving the currents in the branches of a simple two loop circuit.

I was wondering what exactly are the advantages/disadvantages of using these methods? They all produce the same results.. or have done with the examples I have been doing.

Cheers!

When things get more complicated, it can make the analysis simpler.

Loop equations definitely simplify things. Thevinin and Nortron's theorems can simplify some analysis, They are just useful. it's also a useful concept. One problem is finding an ideal current source in real life.

I never used superposition much.

I'll warn you about a few things: conventional current and electron current.

The second thing I will warn you about is parasitics. It can be the case where three 1k resistors in series is not equal to a 3k resistor.

Thanks, thevenins is definitely my preferred choice.
