EGR-221 - Circuit Analysis 1

3 credits

Mathematical models will be developed to describe the behavior of practical voltage and current sources and resistors, capacitors, inductors, diodes, transistors and operational amplifiers (op-amps). Techniques for the analysis of voltage, current and power relationships among these devices interconnected in circuits will be practiced. Analysis techniques will include Kirchoff's Laws, Loop and Nodal Analysis, the Superposition Theorem and Thevenin's and Norton's Theorems. DC applications (constant in time) as well as AC applications (varying sinusoidally with time) will be considered. Treatment of AC applications will include an introduction to phasor analysis and the concept of complex frequency.
