ENGR& 204 - Electrical Circuits

5.0 Credits
Introduction to electrical engineering. Basic circuit and systems concepts. Resistors, sources, capacitors, inductors, and operational amplifiers. Solutions of first- and second-order linear differential equations associated with basic circuit forms. Concurrent enrollment in ENGR 205 is highly recommended.
Prerequisite MATH& 152 and PHYS& 222 with a minimum grade of 2.0.
Course-level Learning Objectives (CLOs)
Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to:

  1. Solve electric circuits using node and mesh analysis.
  2. Apply Thevenin’s and Norton’s theorems to circuit analysis.
  3. Articulate the basic laws of capacitors and inductors.
  4. Demonstrate the use of differential equations in the analysis of resistance-inductance-capacitance (RLC) circuits.
  5. Describe an ideal operational amplifier (op amp) and use it in circuits.
  6. Solve first- and second-order switched circuits.
  7. Analyze single- and three-phase sinusoidal steady state circuits.
