    What is the best way to find the voltage across and current flowing through each component in an AC circuit which has AC current sources, AC voltage sources, resistances, inductors, capacitors?

    I have to write a program for this. I know less about electrical engineering.

    In a practical circuit, use digital meters like multimeter, ammeter and/or voltmeter to find currents and voltages.

    If you are going to calculate these values using a program, you may use standard formulae. You can find these standard formulae online or in a reference book easily. Some of the standard formulae are as following –

    Voltage = Current * Resistance

    1 phase AC power = voltage * current * power factor
