Engineering Circuits and Signals

Course Description

The course has been designed to introduce fundamental principles of circuit theory commonly used in engineering research and science applications. Techniques and principles of electrical circuit analysis including transient and steady-state responses of RLC circuits; circuits with DC and sinusoidal sources, steady-state power and three-phase balanced systems, including Laplace and Fourier transforms applications for solving circuit problems.

It will be covered the topics such as:

  • Basic concepts of signals and systems
  • Understanding of simple RC and RL circuits
  • RLC circuits analysis
  • The Fourier series and circuit analysis
  • Fourier transform and circuit analysis
  • Frequency response
  • Bode Plots

Intended Learning Outcomes

Upon the successful completion of this course, students should be able to:

  • apply knowledge of informatics, mathematics, science, and engineering.
  • design and conduct experiments, as well as to analyze and interpret data.
  • design a system, component, or process to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability.
  • identify, formulate, and solve engineering problems.
  • use the techniques, skills, and modern engineering and scientific tools necessary for engineering practice.
