EEE 141 Electrical Circuits I

Code and Name EEE 141 Electrical Circuits I
Type Core, Engineering, Lecture
Credit Hours 3
Pre-requisites MAT 120 (Calculus and Analytic Geometry I)

Course Summary: Formulation and solution of circuit equations using various circuit analysis techniques including Ohm’s law, Kirchhoff’s laws, mesh and nodal analysis, superposition, source conversion, Thevenin’s theorem, Norton’s theorem, and maximum power transfer theorem. Then transient analysis of series RC and RL circuits will be discussed followed by brief introduction of capacitors and inductors. This course has a separate mandatory laboratory session every week as EEE 141L.

Course Objectives: The objectives of this course are

  1. to introduce basic circuit laws applied in  simple DC circuits to compute voltage, current, equivalent resistance and power.
  2. to analyze complex circuits using nodal and mesh methods.
  3. to simplify circuit analysis using various circuit theorems.
  4. to examine the transient analysis of series RC and RL circuits.
  5. to enable the students to build circuits and conduct experiments on it in a laboratory setting.
