This course is fundamental and introduces students to the concepts of circuit elements, simple linear circuits, and methods of analysis.
It aims at better understanding and consolidation from the students of concepts such as circuit components, data connections, sinusoidal steady state, complex impedance and principles or methods such as laws of Kirchhoff, circuit theorems and analysis methods. Additionally, it includes a laboratory part performed on workbenches with instrumentation and breadboards. The laboratory part of the course involves performing laboratory exercises for better understanding by the students of the basic principles of linear circuits, and familiarization with instrumentation.
This module is the foundation upon which specific methodologies and circuit analysis techniques will be developed in individual courses. The main goal being the understanding of the importance of circuit’s and/or systems successful analysis in the broader context of the electrical engineering science.
