Unformatted text preview: G. Rizzoni, Principles and Applications of Electrical Engineering Problem solutions, Chapter 1 Chapter 1 Instructor Notes
Chapter 1 is introductory in nature, establishing some rationale for studying electrical engineering
methods, even though the students' primary interest may lie in other areas. The material in this chapter
should be included in every syllabus, and can typically be thoroughly covered in a single-day introductory
lecture. Oftentimes, reading of this material is left up to the discretion of the student. 1.1 G. Rizzoni, Principles and Applications of Electrical Engineering Problem solutions, Chapter 1 Chapter 1 problem solutions

Chapter 2 develops the foundations for the first part of the book. Coverage of the entire Chapter would be
typical in an introductory course. The first four sections provide the basic definitions and cover Kirchoff’s
Laws and the passive sign convention; the box Focus on Methodology: The Passive Sign Convention (p.
35) and two examples illustrate the latter topic. The sidebars Make The Connection: Mechanical Analog of
Voltage Sources (p. 20) and Make The Connection: Hydraulic Analog of Current Sources (p. 22) present
the concept of analogies between electrical and other physical domains; these analogies will continue
through the first six chapters.
Sections 2.5and 2.6 introduce the i-v characteristic and the resistance element. Tables 2.1 and 2.2 on p. 41
summarize the resistivity of common materials and standard resistor values; Table 2.3 on p. 44 provides the
resistance of copper wire for various gauges. The sidebar Make The Connection: Electric Circuit Analog of
Hydraulic Systems – Fluid Resistance (p. 40) continues the electric-hydraulic system analogy.
Finally, Sections 2.7 and 2.8 introduce some basic but important concepts related to ideal and nonideal current sources, and measuring instruments.
The Instructor will find that although the material in Chapter 2 is quite basic, it is possible to give
an applied flavor to the subject matter by emphasizing a few selected topics in the examples presented in
class. In particular, a lecture could be devoted to resistance devices, including the resistive displacement
transducer of Focus on Measurements: Resistive throttle position sensor (pp. 52-54), the resistance strain
gauges of Focus on Measurements: Resistance strain gauges (pp. 54-55), and Focus on Measurements:
The Wheatstone bridge and force measurements (pp. 55-56). The instructor wishing to gain a more in-depth
understanding of resistance strain gauges will find a detailed analysis in1.
Early motivation for the application of circuit analysis to problems of practical interest to the nonelectrical engineer can be found in the Focus on Measurements: The Wheatstone bridge and force
measurements. The Wheatstone bridge material can also serve as an introduction to a laboratory
experiment on strain gauges and the measurement of force (see, for example2). Finally, the material on
practical measuring instruments in Section2.8b can also motivate a number of useful examples.
The homework problems include a variety of practical examples, with emphasis on
instrumentation. Problem 2.36 illustrates analysis related to fuses; problems 2.44-47 are related to wire
gauges; problem 2.52 discusses the thermistor; problems 2.54 and 2.55 discuss moving coil meters;
problems 2.52 and 2.53 illustrate calculations related to temperature sensors; an problems 2.56-66 present a
variety of problems related to practical measuring devices.
It has been the author's experience that providing the students with an early introduction to
practical applications of electrical engineering to their own disciplines can increase the interest level in the
course significantly. Learning Objectives
1. Identify the principal elements of electrical circuits: nodes, loops, meshes, branches,
and voltage and current sources.
2. Apply Kirchhoff’s Laws to simple electrical circuits and derive the basic circuit
3. Apply the passive sign convention and compute power dissipated by circuit elements.
4. Apply the voltage and current divider laws to calculate unknown variables in simple
series, parallel and series-parallel circuits.

b) The energy transferred to the battery.
a) To find the charge delivered to the battery during the charge cycle, we examine the charge-current
relationship: i= dq
dt or dq = i ⋅ dt thus:
t1 Q = ³ i (t )dt
t0 5hrs 10 hrs Q = ³ 50mAdt + ³ 20mAdt

dt or dw = p (t )dt t1 t1 t0 t0 w = ³ p (t )dt = ³ v(t )i (t )dt
observing that the energy delivered to the battery is the integral of the power over the charge cycle. Thus,

As the battery discharges, the voltage will decrease below the rated voltage. The remaining chemical
energy stored in the battery is less useful or not useful.

Resistance of external circuit.
a) Current supplied by an ideal voltage source
b) Voltage supplied by an ideal current source.
Ideal voltage and current sources.
a) An ideal voltage source produces a constant voltage at or below its rated current. Current is determined
by the power required by the external circuit (modeled as R). I= Vs
R P = Vs ⋅ I b) An ideal current source produces a constant current at or below its rated voltage. Voltage is determined
by the power demanded by the external circuit (modeled as R). V = Is ⋅ R P = V ⋅ Is
A real source will overheat and, perhaps, burn up if its rated power is exceeded.

Focus on Methodology: Passive Sign Convention
4. Choose an arbitrary direction of current flow.
Label polarities of all active elements (current and voltage sources).
Assign polarities to all passive elements (resistors and other loads); for passive elements,
current always flows into the positive terminal.
Compute the power dissipated by each element according to the following rule: If positive
current flows into the positive terminal of an element, then the power dissipated is
positive (i.e., the element absorbs power); if the current leaves the positive terminal of an
element, then the power dissipated is negative (i.e., the element delivers power). Problem 2.8
Direction and magnitude of the current through the elements in Figure P2.8; voltage at the terminals.
Class of the components A and B.
The current enters the negative terminal of element B and leaves the positive terminal: its coulombic
potential energy increases.
Element B is a power source. It must be either a voltage source or a current source.
The reverse is true for element A. The current loses energy as it flows through element A.
Element A could be 1. a resistor or 2. a power source through which current is being forced to flows

Circuit shown in Figure P2.12; Current through elements D and E; voltage across elements B, C and E.
a) Which components are absorbing power and which are supplying power
b) Verify the conservation of power.
By KCL, the current through element B is 5 A, to the right. By KVL, v D = v E = 10 V (positive at the top)
v A + 5 − 10 − 10 = 0
Therefore the voltage across element A is v A = 15 V (positive on top)
