Eligibility:

In order to be eligible for a first cycle course the applicant needs to fulfil the general and specific entry requirements of the programme(s) that has the course included in the study programme.

Course specific prerequisites

Knowledge of mathematics corresponding to the course LMA212 Linear Algebra.  The course requires especially good knowledge in the fields of Algebra and complex arithmetic s.

Aim

Providing electrical engineers and computer engineers with general electrical engineering background they need to understand and to analyze components and systems characteristics.

Learning outcomes (after completion of the course the student should be able to)

* use basic nomenclature within the electrical engineering field
* communicate about problems within the subject area
* perform basic analysis of DC circuits
* do simple analysis of AC circuits in the time and frequency plan
* describe the function and uses of the most commonly used semiconductor components such as diodes, operational amplifiers and bipolar transistors
* dimension and analyze simple passive and active filters
* do measurements at simple amplifier and filter circuits

Content

Ideal two terminal components. The Thévenin and Norton equivalents. Basic methods for linear and nonlinear DC circuit analysis. Simulation. Measurements of DC current, DC voltage and resistance.Basic AC definitions. RMS-values. Capacitors and inductors. Phasors. Complex representation of voltages and currents. Impedance and admittance. Measurements of AC current and voltage. Frequency response. Bode plots.Semiconductors. The function and application of diodes, transistors and OP-amps.

Organisation

Teaching by lectures, theoretic exercises and laboratory experiments. The theory part includes 6 p and laboratory course 1.5 p

Literature

Literature will be announced at the course homepage at least two weeks before the course start.

Examination

The theory part is examined by written examination with grades 3, 4 and 5.
The laboratory exercises examines the more practical aims.
For the final grade you shall pass the theoretical exam and laboratory exercises.
The final grade is based on the results of the theoretical part of the written exam.
During the beginning of the course is provided a voluntary written test that can give bonus points on the exam.
