ENGN 20 Introduction to Circuit Analysis (3)

Lec-52.5

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.

UC/CSU

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.
