Untitled Document

The course begins with an introduction to basic linear elements used in electrical circuits. Mesh and node analysis for systematic analysis of large circuits will be studied. Fundamental circuit theorems and their use in analysis will be discussed. Two port parameters used for abstracting out the behaviour of complex circuits will be described. The notion of negative feedback, and the opamp as an element for implementing negative feedback circuits will be discussed. Differential equations are introduced as tools for analyzing circuits with memory. Sinusoidal steady state analysis for simple analysis of such circuits will be studied.
