Circuit Analysis: Course Outline (EE-211)

Circuit Analysis is reverse engineering. Given a circuit, figure out the currents, voltages, and powers associated with each component. The project or problem that produced the circuit or the purpose of the circuit is not of concern.

Course Outline

The RLC Circuits: Source Free Series & Parallel RLC Circuits, overdamped, under-damped, critically damped RLC Circuits, complete response of RLC Circuits, Lossless LC Circuits.
The Sinosoidal Steady Response: Nodal, Mesh & loop analysis, AC source Transformation, Thevenin‟s, Norton‟s, Reciprocity & Compensation theorems.
Complex Frequency: Introduction to complex frequency damped sinosoidal forcing function, Laplace Transform, Z(s) & Y(s), frequency response as a function of s, Complex frequency plane, natural response & the S-Plane. Voltage ratio synthesizing, Scaling & Bode Diagrams. General Two Port Networks: Introduction, admittance parameters, some equivalent networks, impedance parameters, hybrid parameters, transmission parameters.

Lab Outline

Steady state response of RLC Circuits. Node, Mesh & Loop Analysis, Transient response of RLC circuits, damping and stability,
