EGR 2201 Circuit Analysis

Principles of linear circuit analysis, covering circuits containing passive and active components. Analysis of direct-current (DC) and alternating-current (AC) circuits, including transient behavior and sinusoidal steady-state behavior. This calculus-based course is designed for Engineering University Transfer students. Three classroom, three lab hours per week.

Prerequisites: MAT 2270 or EGR 1101

Course Outcomes
  • Use circuit-analysis techniques to analyze RC, RL, and RLC circuits with DC excitation.
  • Perform calculations involving electric charge, voltage, current, energy, and power.
  • Analyze simple resistive DC circuits using Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's Voltage Law, and Kirchhoff's Current Law.
  • Use the node-voltage method, the mesh-current method, source transformations, Thevenin and Norton equivalents, and superposition to analyze complex resistive DC circuits.
  • Perform steady-state analysis, including power calculations, on linear circuits with sinusoidal AC excitation.
