The goal of this course to develop an understanding of the elements of electric circuits and the fundamental laws, general techniques such as nodal and mesh analysis, Thevenin and Norton equivalent circuits used in analyzing electric circuits, and develop phasor techniques for AC steady-state analysis of circuits. Study on energy storage elements will help students to understand the transient and the steady-state response of RLC circuits. The course also aims to introduce elementary electronic circuits such as operational amplifiers and their circuit models
Upon succesful completion of this course, a student will be able to
1. Interpret the basic circuit concepts, such as voltage, current, power, energy, etc.
2. Use node and mesh analyses methods for the analysis of linear time invariant circuits.
3. Analyze circuits by utilizing Thevenin’s and Norton’s theorems.
4. Analyze circuits with operational amplifiers.
5. Interpret the operation of capacitors and inductors; and analyze both transient and steady-state response of first order circuits.
6. Analyze second order circuits using state space approach.
7. Identify the concept of phasor; and apply it for the AC steady-state analysis of circuits.
