ET1107 Electric Circuit Theory

Single subject course, 7.5 ECTS credits, First cycle, spring semester 2012

Overview

The purpose of the course is for the course participant to develop basic knowledge and skills in methods of analysing electric nets. Such knowledge and skills are necessary bases for further higher education within the within electrical engineering field and of professional work as engineer related to the fields electrical engineering and computer technology.

Learning Outcomes

Content

The course includes following:
  • Basic circuit theory definitions
  • DC power theory basis
  • Analysis methods
  • Operation amplifier
  • Transient events
  • AC power theory
  • Frequency properties and filter function

Learning outcomes

On completion of course the student will:
  • be able to use circuit theoretical analysis methods to explain the behaviour of linear direct voltage and alternating voltage circuits and simple circuits using operational amplifiers.
  • be able to select and apply methods for solving given analytical problem and within the course content.
  • be able to simulate the behaviour of electrical circuits using computer tools
  • determine the consequences of circuit elements not being ideal by using models for the non-ideal cases
  • be able to measure electrical circuits and interpret the results of such measurements.

Generic Skills

The following general skills are trained in the course:
  • Analytical thinking
  • Practice problem solving individually and in groups

Learning methods

The course is given on campus and as distance course. To follow the distance course requires access to computer and Internet connection. On campus, we have meetings where brief lecture presentations related to course literature are mixed with Q & A sessions, discussions and problem solving in group. In distance course meetings are arranged which video conference for the opportunity to discuss and ask questions on-line. Individual executed home assignments will provide an opportunity to practice own ability solve problems within course content, and submitted weekly. In laboratory sessions practice the practical ability to apply, measure and interpret results, and in examination the ability to use the course content as a whole, and use for problem formulation relevant solution methods. An online course platform used to make accessible assignments, laboratory guide and other course materials in addition to, in course list, presented literature. The platform also provides a forum for discussion. Language is Swedish, but the literature in English. Since virtually all the material in this field as in working life is written in English, it is important to learn to use both the Swedish and English concepts.

Work placement

Practice, project work and guest lectures.

Planned learning activities

Online-seminars and/or seminars at campus and laboratory sessions.

Time allocation

On average, a student should study 200 hours to reach the learning outcomes. This time includes all the various available learning activities (lectures, self studies, examinations, etc.). This estimation is based on the fact that one academic year counts as 60 ECTS credits, corresponding to an average student workload of 1 600 hours. This may vary individually.

Future exams

No upcoming, centrally coordinated, examinations for this course were found.

To participate in a centrally coordinated examination, you must enroll in Student's Portal, no later than fifteen days before the examination.

Time and location for the examination will be published about 5 days in advance.

There might be other scheduled examinations. Information concerning these examinations are available in It's Learning or at other places that the person who is responsible of the course will refer to.

Course Evaluation

The course manager is responsible for the views of students on the course being systematically and regularly gathered and that the results of the evaluations in various forms affect the form and development of the course.
