EGR-2030 Circuit Analysis


4 Credits
This course will introduce the advanced student to the theory of circuit analysis by studying concepts using complex analysis techniques that apply to the electrical engineering, general engineering, and advanced science student alike. Classical analysis techniques of AC/DC circuits using Kirchoff’s laws, mesh and nodal methods, phasor notation, superposition, the application of Thevenin’s and Norton’s theorem, etc. will be examined. Other topics will include transient analysis of first- and second-order circuits, frequency response, polyphase circuits, two-port networks, diodes, transistors, amplifiers, and digital logic. Different tools to aid in the solution of circuits will be performed such as Laplace transforms, transfer functions in the solution of transient analysis, and FFTs for signal analysis. Analysis using different computer simulation techniques will be introduced for a variety of circuits. This introduction will serve as a primer for more advanced courses in the junior and senior year of college. Some design of circuit boards and testing will also be required in this course. Since circuit analysis is a general concept in engineering, this course will examine throughout the course circuit elements (resistors, capacitors, inductors, sources, etc.) and their underlying concepts extending circuit analysis to all the different scientific and engineering fields. Teamwork along with communication skills (oral, written, and graphical) is exercised throughout the course.
Prerequisite(s): MAT-2430 , EGR-1010 , and PHY-1030  with grades of C or higher; MAT-2460  completed or concurrent.
A grade of C or higher is required for any course used to satisfy a prerequisite for any other course.
