Course Description

This course is designed to provide a complete overview of electric circuit analysis used in electrical engineering and electronics engineering. Electric circuit analysis is the most fundamental concept for electrical engineering, electronics engineering, and computer engineering. It is for that reason that electric circuit analysis is usually the first course taught in electrical, electronics, and computer engineering programs at universities, as basically anything related to electrical, electronics, or computer engineering stems from electric circuit analysis.

In this course you will learn everything about electric circuits and electronics, from the basics such as what an electric circuit is and the fundamentals of electrical quantities like voltage, current, and power, all the way to complex techniques for analyzing electric and electronics circuits. The course is roughly divided into the following sections:

Course Introduction: 

We will begin in section 1 by giving an introduction to the course, introducing the instructor, and defining the course objectives.

Fundamentals of Electric Circuits:

In sections 2 and 3 of the course, we will discuss what an electric circuit is at the most basic level, followed by explanations of electrical quantities and sources of electricity. This is the foundation for electrical engineering and electronics engineering.

Basic DC Electric Circuit Analysis:

In sections 4, 5, and 6 we will discuss the analysis of direct current (DC) circuits, starting from basic analysis techniques such as Kirchhoff's voltage law and Kirchhoff's current law (KVL and KCL), voltage division, current division, nodal analysis, and loop analysis. We will also be discussing how complex resistive circuits can be simplified into equivalent circuits for easier analysis of electric circuits and electronics.

Advanced DC Electric Circuit Analysis: 

In section 7, we will discuss advanced analysis techniques for electric circuits and electronics such as the superposition theorem, Thevenin's theorem, and Norton's theorem.

Energy-Storing Devices in Electric Circuits:

In sections 8, and 9, we will discuss passive components in circuits that are able to store energy: capacitors and inductors. We will cover the fundamentals of capacitors and inductors, how they store energy, and how to simplify complex circuits containing combinations of capacitors and inductors into simpler circuits for easier analysis of electric circuits and electronics.

Transients in Electric Circuits:

In section 10, we will discuss the analysis of first-order electric circuits during transients. This is where things start getting a bit more advanced, but we will solve several examples to illustrate how circuits behave during transients, as opposed to the steady-state circuits previously discussed.

In each section, several examples are solved to illustrate how to analyze practical circuits.

By learning all the fundamentals about electric circuit analysis and electronics, you will be able to continue studying other topics in electrical engineering, electronics engineering, and computer engineering, such as analog electronics, digital electronics, circuit design, electric machines, power systems, and more.
