EI1100 Electrical Circuit Analysis 7.5 credits
This course is in the process of being cancelled.
Educational levelFirst cycle
Academic level (A-D)A
Subject areaElectrical Engineering
Grade scaleA, B, C, D, E, FX, F
Last planned examination: Spring 14
At present this course is not scheduled to be offered.
The course will give the basic understanding and knowledge of electrical networks and mathematical methods for analysis of linear models. The course is an essential base for further studies in many different areas where piecewise linear or linear models are used.
After the completed course the student will have the ability to:
- describe properties of passive and active components
- explain concepts in the mathematical model used for description of the circuits
- identify the most common passive and active circuits and describe their properties
- apply the solution methods such as nodal analysis and mesh analysis
- use superposition and two-terminal equivalents
- solve transient problems in switching circuits
- master AC steady state analysis using phasors
- be acquainted with graphical solution techniques for nonlinear components
- apply Joule’s law and complex power
- choose a proper method of solution
- verify the solution
- design an electrical model of a simple system
- use simulation software.
