### Linear Circuit Analysis (Th.) (EE-113)

Linear Circuit Analysis is the first course of the three-course sequence covering the Electric Circuits and Electronics stream.

First portion of this course introduces concepts of charge, current and voltage to be followed with the description of current and voltage sources. An introduction to networks and circuits is accompanied by detailed discussion of Ohm’s law and the Kirchhoff’s laws. This is followed by circuit analysis techniques using Nodal and Mesh Analysis with particular reference to super-node and super-mesh. A comparison of Nodal and Mesh analysis is also made. First portion will also cover the Circuit Analysis Techniques including linearity and superposition, source transformations; important theorems like Thevenin’s, Norton’s and Maximum Power Transfer Theorem. The circuit reduction techniques covering Delta-Wye conversion are also covered to allow the students to analyze the simplified circuits.

Second Portion of this Course will introduce the circuits containing Operational Amplifiers like Ideal Op-Amp model, with negative feedback condition, Inverting and Non-Inverting Configurations, Voltage Followers, Adders and Difference Amplifiers. First order RL, RC Circuits are taught to find the transient and steady state response of these kind of circuits.

Third portion of this course introduces AC fundamentals, RMS or effective, average and maximum values of current & voltage.
