ENGR3:  ELECTRIC CIRCUIT ANALYSIS


Course Description

An introduction to the theory of electric circuits. Topics include resistive circuits, voltage and current sources, network theorems, op-amp circuits, energy storage elements, RC, RL, and RLC circuits. PREREQUISITE: Mathematics 2C (may be taken concurrently) and Physics 4B with a grade of 'C' or better.


Learning Outcomes

  • Identify, compare, contrast, describe, and analyze resistive circuits using circuit analysis techniques and network theorems.
  • Identify, compare, contrast, describe, and analyze circuits containing operational amplifiers.
  • Identify, compare, contrast, describe, analyze, and determine the natural and forced responses of first-order RL and RC circuits.
  • Identify, compare, contrast, describe, analyze, and determine the natural and forced responses of second-order RLC circuits.
  • Identify, compare, contrast, describe, and analyze steady-state AC circuits, including power calculations, using complex notation and phasors.
