mesh currents

[′mesh kə·rəns]

The currents which are considered to circulate around the meshes of an electric network, so that the current in any branch of the network is the algebraic sum of the mesh currents of the meshes to which that branch belongs. Also known as cyclic currents; Maxwell's cyclic currents.
