Introduction to theory, analysis and design of electric circuits. Voltage, current, power, energy, resistance, capacitance, inductance. Kirchhoff's laws node analysis, mesh analysis, Thevenin's theorem, Norton's theorem, steady state and transient analysis, AC, DC, phasors, operational amplifiers, transfer functions.
By the end of this course, the student should be able to
(1) Explain the concepts and parameters associated with: voltage, current, power, energy, resistance, capacitance and inductance. (2) Apply Kirchhoff's laws, linearity, superposition, and Thevenin's theorem in the design and analysis of circuits. (3) Analyze AC circuits involving active circuit elements and elementary amplifiers. (4) Determine the transient response of energy storage elements using periodic functions, RMS values and phasors. (5) Demonstrate the ability to analyze sinusoids in steady-state response, resonance, Q, and bandwidth. (6) Graph the frequency response of the circuits.
