Topics covered include the analysis of passive dc circuits; resistive elements and circuits; independent sources; KVL and KCL, mesh currents and node voltages, linearity, superposition, Thevenin's and Norton’s equivalents; operational amplifiers; energy storage elements: inductance and capacitance; transient response of first order circuits; time constants; sinusoidal steady state analysis: phasors, impedance, average power flow, AC power, maximum power transfer, transfer function.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Explain the methodology of modeling electrical and electronic systems by lumped circuit models,
  • Determine the voltage-current relation of basic circuit components,
  • Analyze DC resistive circuits using circuit analysis techniques (such as mesh currents, nodal voltages),
  • Analyze circuits using network theorems such as superposition, Thevenin’s and Norton’s Theorems,
  • Analyze operational amplifier circuits
  • Analyze RC and RL circuits using differential equations,
  • Analyze RC and RL circuits driven by step or sinusiodal sources,
  • Analyze R-L-C circuits using phasors,
