Overall Educational Objective:
To develop skills in determining DC and AC steady state
solutions to electrical networks, and power computations
Course Learning Outcomes:
A student who successfully fulfills the course requirements
will have demonstrated:
an ability to define and explain the meaning/function of
charge, current, voltage, power, energy, R, L, C, the op
amp, and the fundamental principles of Ohm's law, KVL
and KCL including an understanding of electrical safety
and the effect of current on humans.
an ability to write the equilibrium equations for a given
network and solve them analytically, and also using
appropriate software as needed for the steady state (DC
and AC/phasor) solution.
