dear all,

I am trying to use the solve to get symbolic answer.

to be simple, here is issue:

I have 15equations with 16 varibles.

the 15 equation as follows:

**first 4 equation set **

equList_Ya :=
[ Va1 Ya11 + Va2 Ya12 + Va3 Ya13 + Va4 Ya14 = Ia1,
Va1 Ya21 + Va2 Ya22 + Va3 Ya23 + Va4 Ya24 = Ia2,
Va1 Ya31 + Va2 Ya32 + Va3 Ya33 + Va4 Ya34 = Ia3,
Va1 Ya41 + Va2 Ya42 + Va3 Ya43 + Va4 Ya44 = Ia4]

**2nd 4 equation set**

equList_Yb :=
[ Vb1 Yb11 + Vb2 Yb12 + Vb3 Yb13 + Vb4 Yb14 = Ib1,
Vb1 Yb21 + Vb2 Yb22 + Vb3 Yb23 + Vb4 Yb24 = Ib2,
Vb1 Yb31 + Vb2 Yb32 + Vb3 Yb33 + Vb4 Yb34 = Ib3,
Vb1 Yb41 + Vb2 Yb42 + Vb3 Yb43 + Vb4 Yb44 = Ib4]

**the 3rd 4 equation set**

equList_ConnectCondition :=
[Ia3 = -Ib1, Ia4 = -Ib2, Va3 = Vb1, Va4 = Vb2]

**the 4th 3 equation set**

equList_Y11Condition := [Va2 = 0, Vb3 = 0, Vb4 = 0]

**so total equation number is 4+4+4+3=15**

equList_Y11all := {Ia3 = -Ib1, Ia4 = -Ib2, Va2 = 0, Va3 = Vb1, Va4 = Vb2, Vb3 = 0,
Vb4 = 0, Va1*Ya11 + Va2*Ya12 + Va3*Ya13 + Va4*Ya14 = Ia1,
Va1*Ya21 + Va2*Ya22 + Va3*Ya23 + Va4*Ya24 = Ia2,
Va1*Ya31 + Va2*Ya32 + Va3*Ya33 + Va4*Ya34 = Ia3,
Va1*Ya41 + Va2*Ya42 + Va3*Ya43 + Va4*Ya44 = Ia4,
Vb1*Yb11 + Vb2*Yb12 + Vb3*Yb13 + Vb4*Yb14 = Ib1,
Vb1*Yb21 + Vb2*Yb22 + Vb3*Yb23 + Vb4*Yb24 = Ib2,
Vb1*Yb31 + Vb2*Yb32 + Vb3*Yb33 + Vb4*Yb34 = Ib3,
Vb1*Yb41 + Vb2*Yb42 + Vb3*Yb43 + Vb4*Yb44 = Ib4}

**the 16 varible is **

var_Y11 :=
[ Va1, Va2, Va3, Va4,
Ia1, Ia2, Ia3, Ia4,
Vb1, Vb2, Vb3, Vb4,
Ib1, Ib2, Ib3, Ib4]

**I hope to get Ia1=f(Va1) to calculate Y11(=Ia1/Va1)**

**but the solve give nothing:**

Y11_all := solve(equList_Y11all, {Ia1}, symbolic = true);

Y11_all := NULL

**Question1: why the above solve output nothing???**

**since not work,so** I try another way:

polys_Y11 := map(lhs - rhs = 0, equList_Y11all);
polys_Y11 := {Va2 = 0, Vb3 = 0, Vb4 = 0, Ia3 + Ib1 = 0,
Ia4 + Ib2 = 0, Va3 - Vb1 = 0, Va4 - Vb2 = 0,
Va1 Ya11 + Va2 Ya12 + Va3 Ya13 + Va4 Ya14 - Ia1 = 0,
Va1 Ya21 + Va2 Ya22 + Va3 Ya23 + Va4 Ya24 - Ia2 = 0,
Va1 Ya31 + Va2 Ya32 + Va3 Ya33 + Va4 Ya34 - Ia3 = 0,
Va1 Ya41 + Va2 Ya42 + Va3 Ya43 + Va4 Ya44 - Ia4 = 0,
Vb1 Yb11 + Vb2 Yb12 + Vb3 Yb13 + Vb4 Yb14 - Ib1 = 0,
Vb1 Yb21 + Vb2 Yb22 + Vb3 Yb23 + Vb4 Yb24 - Ib2 = 0,
Vb1 Yb31 + Vb2 Yb32 + Vb3 Yb33 + Vb4 Yb34 - Ib3 = 0,
Vb1 Yb41 + Vb2 Yb42 + Vb3 Yb43 + Vb4 Yb44 - Ib4 = 0}

and solve it with

**what I expected is Ia1=f(Va1) which Va1 as indepentent,but the above solution have no Va1 **

Question2: is the (22) give the right answer for Ia1 ? what is the indepent var for the above solution?

thx for your help.
