Intended learning outcomes
After completion of the course the student should be able to:
- Explain the basic electrical and magnetic concepts.
- Descibe passive components and electrical networks.
- Perform network calculation and simulation.
- Analyze basic circuits.
- Dimension circuits using passive components
- Measure electrical circuits
Literature and preparations
Physics 2, Chemistry 1, Mathematics 3c. In each of the subjects, a minimum of the grade E is required.
The course litterature will be given four weeks before the course start, and will be announced in the course PM.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- LAB1 - Laboratory Work, 2.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN1 - Examination, 5.0 credits, grading scale: 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.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- 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.
