About the content
Learn the analysis of circuits including resistors, capacitors, and inductors. This course is directed towards people who are in science or engineering fields outside of the disciplines of electrical or computer engineering.
Module 1: Background:
Background information on electricity, resistors, and circuit diagrams
Module 2: Resistive Circuits:
Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's Law, Resistors in series and in parallel, Systematic Solution Methods, Physical applications, and Lab demos
Module 3: Reactive Circuits:
Capacitors, Inductors, First and Second Order Differential Equations, RC and RL and RLC circuit steady-state and transient response to a DC source, Physical applications, Lab demos
Module 4: Frequency Analysis:
AC response, Impedance, Transfer functions, Frequency response, Filtering, Applications, Lab demos
Real and reactive power, power factor, transformers
Each module has a quiz associated with it, where the modules that take longer are assigned more credit in grading. Each week has a homework associated with it that is due at the end of the week.
