## OVERVIEW

To provide basic elements of electrical circuits theory (transient and steady-state analysis of elementary resistive, first-order and second-order linear circuits) and to apply them to examples.

## AIMS AND CONTENT

LEARNING OUTCOMES

To be able to analyse a linear time-invariant circuit (transitory and steady-state analysis).

TEACHING METHODS

SYLLABUS/CONTENT

Fundamentals of circuit theory (circuit elements; models; elementary electrical variables; graphs and circuits; Kirchhoff's laws; Tellegen's theorem). Two-terminal resistive elements and elementary circuits (significant two-terminal elements; Thévenin-Norton models; concept of electrical power; series and parallel connections). Linear resistive two-ports and elementary circuits (six representations and properties; significant two-port elements; cascade, series and parallel connections). General resistive circuits (Tableau analysis; superposition and substitution theorems; Thévenin-Norton theorems). Elementary dynamical circuits (significant circuit elements; concept of state; transient and stationary steady-state solutions of first-order circuits with various sources: constant, piecewise-constant, impulsive; stability; generalizations to second- and higher-order circuits). Sinusoidal steady-state analysis (phasors and sinusoidal solutions; phasor formulations of circuit equations; impedance and admittance of two-terminal elements; sinusoidal steady-state solutions; active, reactive and complex powers). Periodical steady-state analysis (analysis of circuits with many sinusoidal inputs; periodical signals and Fourier series; mean value; RMS value theorem). Exercises and examples.

CIRCUITS THEORY

## EXAMS

EXAM DESCRIPTION

Written (max. score 19) + oral (max score 15). During the course, many exercises will be proposed to the students for self-examination. For the attending students, two further partial written examinations will be proposed, with a total score of 34: if the total score is sufficient, it can be registered without any additional oral examination; otherwise, an oral examination (max. score 30) is mandatory and the final score is the mean of written and oral examination.
