2. Course Overview

This course introduces students to the basic concepts of electric networks, including analysis and design. The lecture starts with an introduction to electric circuits, then introduces circuit laws, analysis methods, amplifiers, AC circuits, signals, and SPICE.

3. Course Outcomes

Students completing this course will be able to:

1. Analyze simple resistive circuits including those containing independent sources with mesh and nodal analysis.

2. Derive simplified resistor networks.

3. Derive Thevenin and Norton equivalent circuits.

4. Apply circuit theorems (Ohms Law, Superposition, Source transformation) to simplify the analysis of electrical circuits.

5. Analyze of operational amplifiers circuits.

6. Analyze first- and second-order RL, RC circuits containing switches, independent sources, dependent sources, resistors, capacitors, inductors for transient response.

4. Prerequisite

Undergraduate level MATH 222 Minimum Grade of C-.

5. Textbook

Schaum's Outline of Electric Circuits, 6th edition (Schaum's Outlines) (required).

6. Grading

40% Homework/Quizzes/Lab Reports

20% Midterm

10% Project

30% Final

7. Policies

No laptops, Internet appliances (e.g. Kindle, Nook, Ipad, etc.), smart phones, may be used during lectures or exams.

Exam and quiz are close book close notes if not specified.

The final exam will not be returned at the end of the semester, not even temporarily for you to review.

Regularly being tardy for lectures, leaving in the middle of lectures, or earlier from lectures is unacceptable without prior consent of the instructor.

Cheating or plagiarism will result in an automatic F grade in the course (so do your own homework and projects!).
