ENGR 3004 - Circuit Analysis I, 4 Credits
Prerequisite(s): MATH 2094 with D or better
Corequisite(s): MATH 6114
This Calculus-based course covers DC circuit analysis including voltage, current, resistance, power and energy. Circuit analysis techniques and Kirchhoff's laws are applied to series, parallel and complex circuits. Thevenin, Norton and Superposition theorems are applied to DC circuits. Operational amplifiers are introduced. Inductance and capacitance are introduced and the transient response of RL, RC and RLC circuits to step inputs is studied using differential equations. The laboratory incorporates use of manual and computer-controlled equipment and simulation software to reinforce lecture concepts.
