OVERVIEW

This subject aims to provide basic elements of electrical circuit theory: fundamental electrical components and analysis of elementary linear circuits at stationary and sinusoidal steady-state.

AIMS AND CONTENT

AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

At the end of this subject, the student is expected to know the characteristics of the main electrical components. He/she will be able to correctly apply the descriptive and topological equations to analyze a linear, time-invariant circuit at DC and AC steady-state.

TEACHING METHODS

Classroom lectures (24 hours). During the lessons, in addition to the explanation of the theoretical concepts, the teacher will solve exercises about circuit analysis.

Working students and students with disabilities or learning disorders (e.g., DSA) are advised to contact the teacher at the beginning of the course to discuss about teaching and exam methods.

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Voltage, current, flux, charge, electrical energy and power.
Electrical component (bipole, n-pole, two-port), Kirchhoff laws.
Fundamental adynamical bipoles and two-port (resistor, ideal generator, controlled generator, ideal transformer); series and parallel connection of bipoles.
Resistive dividers, Thévenin and Norton equivalent models of composite bipoles; analysis of linear circuits at DC steady state.
Superposition principle; Tellegen's theorem.
Fundamental dynamical components (capacitor, inductor, and coupled inductors).
Analysis of linear circuits in AC steady-state; phasors; impedance and admittance; complex power; triphase systems; mean and RMS value of periodic quantities.
