Credits:

4 credits

Textbook:

James W. Nilsson and Susan A. Ridel, “Electric Circuits”, 8th edition, Prentice-Hall, 2008.  (Chapters 1-8)

Reference books:

Lessons in Electric Circuits (a free series of textbooks, http://www.faqs.org/docs/electric/ )

Goals:

To develop the fundamental tools of linear circuit analysis which will be useful to all engineers. To learn the "alphabet" of circuits, including wires, resistors, capacitors, inductors, independent and dependent voltage and current sources, and operational amplifiers. To prepare students for more advanced courses in circuit analysis.

Learning Objectives:

1. Identify linear systems and represent those systems in schematic form

2. Explain precisely what the fundamental circuit variables mean and why the fundamental laws governing them are true.

3. Apply Kirchhoff's current and voltage laws, Ohm's law, and the terminal relations describing inductive and capacitive energy-storage elements to circuit problems.

4. Simplify circuits using series and parallel equivalents and using Thevenin and Norton equivalents

5. Perform node and loop analyses and set these up in standard matrix format

6. Explain the physical underpinnings of capacitance and inductance.

7. Identify and model first and second order electric systems involving capacitors and inductors

8. Predict the transient behavior of first and second order circuits
