Topics include resistive circuits, independent and dependent sources, analysis methods, network theories, energy-storage elements, RC and RL circuits, second order circuits, sinusoidal excitation and phasers. Three lecture hours and one recitation hour per week. Fall
MTH 215 with a C- or better.
Completion of EGR 131 and 132.
- Apply formulas for current, charge voltage, energy and power in the solution of applied problems including the power balance equation.
- Apply Kirchoff’s laws and other axioms and definitions to determine the voltage and currents in simple circuits and to analyze the general single-loop or series circuits.
- Use derived equivalent components to reduce more complicated networks to equivalent series or parallel circuits.
- Apply node-voltage analysis & mesh-current analysis approaches to network analysis.
- Apply the properties of linearity and time invariance associated with input-output equations in simplifying network analysis.
- Apply characteristics of operational amplifiers (OP AMP) and the concept of negative feedback.
- Describe signal models and signal characterizations as applied to electrical engineering.
- Apply differential equation definitions to solve the response of source-free circuits.
- Analyze circuits which include independent sources (drivers) and to solve differential equations describing the circuits.
