ELEC105 - Circuit Theory I
The concepts of current, voltage, power, energy, and resistance are studied. Topics include DC and AC sources, capacitance, inductance, and magnetism. Resistive circuits are analyzed using Ohm's and Kirchhoff's Laws and computer-aided circuit analysis using SPICE is included. Corequisite: MATH205 College Mathematics I or MATH230 College Mathematics B. Day and The Arioch Center Course.
At the end of this course, students should have proficiency in the following topics:
- Current, voltage, power sources
- Sinusoidal wave, amplitude, frequency
- Resistors, standard values, color code
- Ohm’s law, power, energy (DC&AC)
- Series circuits, Kirchhoff’s voltage law.
- Voltage divider, source resistance
- Parallel circuits, Kirchhoff’s current law, current divider
- Series-parallel circuits, ladder networks
- Voltage divider loading
- Current source, source conversions
- Introduction to mesh and node analysis
- Network Theorems (Superposition, Thevenin, Norton and max power transfer)
