## EE1-01 Analysis of Circuits

Lecturer(s): Mr Mike Brookes

Aims:
To give students an understanding of the laws governing the quiescent, frequency domain and small-signal behaviour of electrical circuits, and the ability to apply this understanding to the analysis and design of circuit behaviour To give students an understanding of the analysis and design of common circuits such as those involving operational amplifiers.

Learning Outcomes:
By the end of the course, a student should understand, and be able to apply to both analysis and design: - the overall process of design, including modelling - component description (resistors and controlled sources) - Kirchoff's Laws - equivalence: Thevenin and Norton models - superposition - nodal analysis - the handling of controlled sources - component description - capacitors and inductors - significance of phase relationships - concept of complex voltages and currents - extension of Kirchoff's Laws to complex voltages and currents - the relevance of linear circuits theorems to frequency-domain behaviour - asymptotic behaviour The Operational Amplifier (opamp) - the characteristics of the opamp - the mathematical operations that can be achieved with opamps - feedback and stability; gain-bandwidth limitations. First-order transients: - passive CR and LR circuits - transients in active circuits. Transmission lines: - forward and backward waves, reflections, standing waves.

Syllabus:
Circuit variables; voltage, current, charge and power Circuit elements Kirchoff's current and voltage laws Nodal analysis for resistor circuits Transient analysis of 1st order RC and RL circuits Superposition Thevenin and Norton theorems Controlled sources Phasors and phasor analysis Transfer functions and Filters Operational amplifier circuits, systematic nodal analysis, Power in AC circuits, Transmission lines.
