Welcome - Electric Circuits ECED 2000   Electric Circuits
CREDIT HOURS: 3
This is an introductory course in electric circuit analysis. The material covered starts with a review of the fundamental circuit variables such as voltage, current, charge, power and energy. Kirchhoff's laws are introduced and developed into node and loop analysis techniques. Terminal behavior and circuit equivalence including Thevenin and Norton circuits are covered. Analysis with controlled sources and energy storage elements is developed including steady state and transient response for first order networks. Phasors and sinusoidal steady state are introduced. Students are introduced to circuit simulation tools such as p-spice.
