Content and learning outcomes

Course contents

Ohm’s and Kirchhoff’s laws. Analysis methods. Transients. Steady state analysis. Phasors. Complex power and impedance matching. Filters. Mutual inductive coupling. Computer simulation. Operational amplifiers. Applications.

Intended learning outcomes

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.

Examination and completion

If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.

Grading scale

A, B, C, D, E, FX, F


  • LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 2,0 hp, betygsskala: P, F
  • TEN1 - Examination, 5,5 hp, betygsskala: A, B, C, D, E, FX, F

Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.

The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.

Other requirements for final grade

Laboratory assignment (LAB1; 2 cr), Written examination, (TEN1; 5,5 cr).

Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination

No information inserted

Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination

Ethical approach

  • All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
  • In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
  • In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
