Description
Engineering Circuit Analysis, also known as Circuit Theory, is difficult for most students primarily because the basic laws seem very simple. This leads the student to believe that the exam problems will not be too difficult, when in reality there is a large amount of technique in solving circuit problems.In other words, practicing circuit problems is absolutely essential to success in any circuits course.
We begin this course assuming that the student knows absolutely nothing about electrical circuits. We start by explaining what voltage, current, and resistance mean in the context of a circuit. Once this is mastered, we explain the circuit symbols and illustrate these with simple circuits.
Ohm's law is covered next, which is absolutely essential in circuit theory, after which we explain Kirchhoff's Current Law and Kirchhoff's Voltage law.
Numerous circuit problems are worked with these tools to give the student practice and confidence.
We finish up the course with detailed examples on series/parallel resistor arrangements, voltage divider circuits, and current divider circuits.
With these tools, the student will be able to solve a wide variety of engineering level circuit problems with confidence.
