Entry requirements

Note: Admission requirements for non-programme students usually also include admission requirements for the programme and threshold requirements for progression within the programme, or corresponding.

Prerequisites

Calculus and linear algebra

Intended learning outcomes

The purpose of the course is to give proficiency to analyse, and to a certain extent, design electrical circuits, consisting of linear passive components. The course shall give directly applicable knowledge and be preparatory for other courses as well.
After completing the course you should be able to:

  • analyze and perform measurements on DC and AC circuits
  • use transforms to solve differential equations and circuit problems
  • analyze and verify measurements on simple filters.

Course content

DC theory and AC theory with the complex method. Periodic signals, Fourier series on complex and trigonometric form. Mean value and power. Impulse and step response, sinc function. Fourier transform, magnitude, phase, and energy spectrum. System of differential equations, Laplace transform, convergence region. Transfer function, poles and zeros, stability and causality. Introduction to continuous-time filters.   
 

Teaching and working methods

The course is organised in lectures, lessons and laboratory work.
The course runs the entire spring semester.
