Minimal learning outcomes

  • Understand the fundamental concepts related to electricity, magnetism and electric circuit theory.
  • Apply Kirchhoff's laws to DC and AC circuits analysis
  • Apply phasors for sinusoidal AC circuit analysis
  • Analyze DC and AC circuits by following circuit analysis methods and theorems: nodal analysis, mesh analysis, star-delta transformation, transformation between real source models, Thévenin's and Norton's theorems
  • Analyze transients in first- and second-order circuits
  • Apply the principle of linearity and superposition to AC and DC circuits.
  • Apply circuit analysis methods to transformers and three-phase systems
  • Use basic laboratory measurement equipment including the power supplies, ammeters, voltmeters, ohmmeters, digital multimeters, function generators, and oscilloscopes as well as to conduct experiments, to measure basic quantities in electric circuits, and to interpret data
