Circuit Theory/All Chapters

Posted on Feb 7, 2014

This wikibook is going to be an introductory text about electric circuits. It will cover some the basics of electric circuit theory, circuit analysis, and will touch on circuit design. This book will serve as a companion reference for a 1st year of an Electrical Engineering undergraduate curriculum. Topics covered include AC and DC circuits, passi

ve circuit components, phasors, and RLC circuits. The focus is on students of an electrical engineering undergraduate program. Hobbyists would benefit more from reading Electronics instead. The main editable text of this book is located at. The wikibooks version of this text is considered the most up-to-date version, and is the best place to edit this book and contribute to it. The theory of electrical circuits can be a complex area of study. The chapters in this section will introduce the reader to the world of electric circuits, introduce some of the basic terminology, and provide the first introduction to passive circuit elements. This is designed for a first course in Circuit Analysis which is usually accompanied by a set of labs. It is assumed that students are in a Differential Equations class at the same time. Phasors are used to avoid the Laplace transform of driving functions while maintaining a complex impedance transform of the physical circuit that is identical in both. 1st and 2nd order differential equations can be solved using phasors and calculus if the driving functions are sinusoidal. The sinusoidal is then replaced by the more simple step function and then the convolution integral is used to find an analytical solution to any driving function. This leaves time for a more intuitive understanding of poles, zeros, transfer functions, and Bode plot interpretation. For those that have already had differential...
