Subject fundamentals
The main objective of the course is to introduce students to the comprehension of the basic laws governing electrical circuits, giving suitable and general methods for their analysis. In particular, the course gives fundamental tools to analyse high-order dynamical circuits in the time and in the frequency-domain.
Expected learning outcomes
Knowledge of the basic laws governing electrical circuits.
Knowledge of circuit analysis techniques to deal with dynamical circuits of higher orders.
Ability to analyze electric circuits, being able to choose the most convenient technique.
Ability to use a modern computer program for Computer-aided Circuit Analysis (Pspice).
Basic concepts: charge and current, voltage, power and energy, resistive circuit elements. Kirchhoff's laws. Two-port resistive networks: dependent sources, ideal transformer. Ideal operational amplifier. Nodal analysis. Network theorems: superposition, Thevenin/Norton, substitution. Analysis of resistive circuits with ideal diodes. Linear capacitors and inductors. First-order dynamical circuits.
Coupled inductors. Transient analysis of high-order circuits using the Laplace transform. Frequency domain analysis. Network functions: impedances, admittances and transfer functions. Natural frequencies and stability. Bode plots.
Sinusoidal steady-state analysis: phasors and network equations. AC power analysis. Maximum power transfer theorem. Two-port networks and reciprocity.
