ENGN 20 Introduction to Circuit Analysis (3)
Credit, Degree Applicable
Introduction to circuit analysis to determine the natural, forced and complete responses of zero, first and second-order networks and systems. Standard circuit-analysis techniques will be covered including Kirchhoff's Laws, loop and nodal analysis, Thevenin and Norton's Theorems, generalized impedance and admittance techniques and phasor methods.
After successful completion of this course, students will be able to:
- Outcome 1: Formulate a method of analysis to determine the natural, forced and complete responses of zero, first and second order circuits.
- Outcome 2: Synthesize a method of solution to determine the current or voltage in any linear circuit using a combination Kirchhoff's Laws, loop and node analysis, the solution of differential equations, generalized impedance and admittance techniques, phasor methods.
- Outcome 3: Solve steady state AC circuit and network problems involving power transfer and resonance.
- Outcome 4: Categorize basic analog transistor models and Operational Amplifiers configurations.
- Outcome 5: Configure and manage state-of-the-art computer software tools (spreadsheet, analysis and graphics software tools) to solve circuit problems.
- Outcome 6: Compose a clear and complete presentation of a solution to a circuit problem in the manner of modern professional engineers, showing all steps clearly and all formulas used.
