Power and energy. Two port network theory. Laboratory in basic electrical engineering topics. Prerequisite: 1.0 in E E 215.
Course structure: 3 lectures per week, 1 lab per week, 1 TA recitation/quiz session per week, homeworks, quizzes, practice exams, two midterms, final exam, extra help in office hours with professor or TAs, Facebook course discussion 24/7, Catalyst webpage for posting of course material.
Course topics: electric circuit analysis in the frequency domain. Phasor and Laplace Transform methods, power calculations, transfer function, low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, and band-reject (passive and active) filters.
Course goals: To learn how to analyze electric circuits in the frequency domain; to calculate power for electric circuits; to recognize and analyze common filters such as low-pass, high-pass, band-pass, and band-reject both for passive and active circuits; to learn how to use laboratory instruments such as the function generator, oscilloscope and multimeter for analyzing real electric circuits that you build in the laboratory; to learn how to use MultiSim; to learn how to write a good lab report on your experiments; to understand and feel comfortable with this material so that you can go on to take the next EE class in this area.
