  • This book is designed for use as a textbook for a first course in circuit analysis or as a supplement to

    standard texts and can be used by electrical engineering students as well as other engineereing and

    technology students. Emphasis is placed on the basic laws, theorems, and problem-solving techniques

    which are common to most courses.

    The subject matter is divided into 17 chapters covering duly-recognized areas of theory and study.

    The chapters begin with statements of pertinent definitions, principles, and theorems together with

    illustrative examples. This is followed by sets of solved and supplementary problems. The problems

    cover a range of levels of difficulty. Some problems focus on fine points, which helps the student to better

    apply the basic principles correctly and confidently. The supplementary problems are generally more

    numerous and give the reader an opportunity to practice problem-solving skills. Answers are provided

    with each supplementary problem.

    The book begins with fundamental definitions, circuit elements including dependent sources, circuit

    laws and theorems, and analysis techniques such as node voltage and mesh current methods. These

    theorems and methods are initially applied to DC-resistive circuits and then extended to RLC circuits by

    the use of impedance and complex frequency. Chapter 5 on amplifiers and op amp circuits is new. The op

    amp examples and problems are selected carefully to illustrate simple but practical cases which are of

    interest and importance in the students future courses. The subject of waveforms and signals is also

    treated in a new chapter to increase the students awareness of commonly used signal models.

    Circuit behavior such as the steady state and transient response to steps, pulses, impulses, and

    exponential inputs is discussed for first-order circuits in Chapter 7 and then extended to circuits of

    higher order in Chapter 8, where the concept of complex frequency is introduced. Phasor analysis,

    sinuosidal steady state, power, power factor, and polyphase circuits are thoroughly covered. Network

    functions, frequency response, filters, series and parallel resonance, two-port networks, mutual induc-

    tance, and transformers are covered in detail. Application of Spice and PSpice in circuit analysis is

    introduced in Chapter 15. Circuit equations are solved using classical differential equations and the

    Laplace transform, which permits a convenient comparison. Fourier series and Fourier transforms and

    their use in circuit analysis are covered in Chapter 17. Finally, two appendixes provide a useful summary

    of the complex number system, and matrices and determinants.

    This book is dedicated to our students from whom we have learned to teach well. To a large degree it

    is they who have made possible our satisfying and rewarding teaching careers. And finally, we wish to

    thank our wives, Zahra Nahvi and Nina Edminister for their continuing support, and for whom all these

    efforts were happily made.
