Course Description:

This course is designed to provide the student with the skills required to analyze electrical circuits. It will focus on the understanding of current concepts in element definition and currently accepted concepts in the application of the circuit parameters; voltage, current and power. 

Instructional Objectives:

By the end of this course, the student will be able to:

  • Have a working knowledge of Ohm's Law, Kirchoff's Laws, Thevenin and Norton equivalent circuits and circuit reduction techniques
  • Apply circuit analysis techniques to circuits consisting of passive electrical elements and the operational amplifier.
  • Perform direct current analysis of passive circuits and transient response of circuits with a single energy storage element (capacitor or inductor) solve these equations for simple geometries using analytical techniques
  • Perform circuit simulations with Mentorgraphics
  • Use MATLAB for laboratory and homework assignments as a supplement to direct calculations

Semester Hours: 2
