EGR245 - Electrical Circuit Analysis

Credits: 4

Catalog Description: A comprehensive study of the basic concepts of electrical circuits. Topics include resistive, inductive and capacitive circuits, Kirchhoff’s Voltage and Current laws, analysis of operational amplifiers using mesh and nodal analysis, Sinusoidal Steady State circuit analysis, power calculations and the use of Phasors to develop current and voltage calculations. Laboratory will include the use of actual circuit elements to support theory from lecture sessions and will incorporate software to simulate system analysis. Three lecture hours, three lab hours. Prerequisite: PHY132.

Lecture: 3 hrs.

Lab: 3 hrs.

Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs):
Upon the successful completion of this course, a student will be able to:
1. Perform current, voltage and power calculations for electrical circuits using mesh-current and node-voltage methods.
2. Solve problems by applying Ohm's and Kirchhoff's laws to electrical circuits.
3. Apply Thevenin's theorem and develop simplified circuits for analysis.
4. Apply the superposition theorem to solve circuits problems.
5. Solve problems involving different types of Operational Amplifiers and determine their influence on circuit parameters.
6. Apply Phasor diagrams to calculate sinusoidal circuit responses
7. Simulate circuit systems as part of the laboratory experience by using PSPICE software.
