Learning Outcomes
The purpose of the course is for the course participant to develop basic knowledge and skills in methods of analyzing electric circuits. On the completion of the course, the student will be able to: 1. Identify linear circuits; 2. Apply Kirchhoff’s voltage and current laws to circuit problems; 3. Simplify circuits using series and parallel equivalents and using Thevenin and Norton equivalents; 4. Perform node and loop analyses and set these up in standard matrix format; 5. Represent and analyze circuits on the frequency domain; 6. Use basic circuit theorems to explain the behavior of linear circuits.
Course Content (Syllabus)
• Basic principles of electric circuits (voltage, current, nodes, branches, loops, energy and power, Kirchhoff’s current and voltage laws); • Circuit elements (capacitors, inductors, resistors, Ohm’s law, voltage and current courses); • Single port circuits (series circuits, parallel circuits, series-parallel circuits, equivalent circuits); • AC circuits (sinusoids and phasors, sinusoidal steady state analysis); • Methods of analysis (nodal analysis, mesh analysis); • Circuit theorems (linearity, superposition, source transformation, Thevenin’s Theorem, Norton’s Theorem, maxim power transfer); • Symmetric circuits.
