Yes, Z1 to Z4 can be simplified as parallel combination; agree with you. However, I have 4 different current branches and I am interested in calculating rms value of current of each branch. That is why I have Z1 to Z4.

You are right; taking Vdc as input voltage source, Isource is the load in my circuit. However, if I were to draw this circuit in a circuit simulator, I would chose a current source from the parts library to define "Isource" in my schematic. That is why I used the name source. However, it is a load, too. No big deal...

Solving or calculation, I don't mind. Either one is ok. Numeric solution is fine...

I attemted to solve it by Y-Matrix approach and I was asking about details of this approach. Then I posted the circuit itself in case someone suggests that there is an easier way to tackle this circuit in MC14 rather than Y-matrix approach.

I never used or intented to use units in Mathcad. However, my circuit component values are mostly miliohms, micro or nano or pico farads and micro henries. It makes it easier to define "m", "n", and "p" as multipliers and that go with the component values instead of typing 10^(-3) for mili, for example.

No it is not a joke :-). The cap values in my fle are standard values. However, 1/C becomes a weird number. That is how I got them.
I plan to post this circuit in "Electrical Engineering" section since more electrical engineers may see my file in this section and possibly tackle my problem.
