1.1 Etectrical Engineering: An Overview Electrical engineering is the profession concetned with systems that oroduce. transmit, anal measure electric signals. Elect cal engineeing ;ombines the pbysicist's models of natural phenomena ith the mathe- matician's tools lor manipulating those models to produce systems that meet practical needs. Electiical systems pervade our lives;they are found ir homes, schools, workplaces, and transportation vehicles everywhere We begin by presenting a few examples from each ofthe five major clas- sifications of electrical systems: . commu catlon syslems ' computel systems t control systems . power sysEms . signal-processing systems Then we describe how electrical engineers anallze and design such systems Conrmunication systems are electrical systems that generate' trans- mit. and distribute information. Well-known examples include television
