Lecture 2, Slide 3 EECS40, Fall 2003 Prof. King Electrical System Design Process 1. Identify system performance requirements Æ design specifications 2. Conceive of approach Æ design concept 3. Develop an electric circuit model (mathematical model that approximates the behavior of an actual electrical system) … using ideal circuit components (mathematical models of actual electrical components) 4. Build and test a physical prototype Lecture 2, Slide 4 EECS40, Fall 2003 Prof. King Circuit Analysis Circuit analysis is used to predict the behavior of the electric circuit, and plays a key role in the design process. – Comparison between desired behavior (design specifications) and predicted behavior (from circuit analysis) leads to refinements in design In order to analyze an electric circuit, we need to know the behavior of each ideal circuit element (in terms of its voltage and current) and the constraints imposed by interconnecting the various elements.
Lecture 2, Slide 5 EECS40, Fall 2003 Prof. King Macroscopically, most matter is electrically neutral most of the time.
