Electric Circuits: Analysis and Design presents a clear, accessible treatment of the basic theory of electrical circuits. The authors have carefully selected the material in the text to provide an excellent stepping stone to all areas of electrical engineering. Its chapters are organized so that the book can be used to satisfy the requirements of any curriculum.
The book begins by introducing the basic circuit laws and theorems using resistive circuits only. This material is not restricted to DC sources only. Time-varying voltage and current sources are also considered so students are exposed to circuit configurations they will see in the real world. In addition, the effect of temperature on resistance-an important factor that is often ignored by other textbooks-is covered. The text goes on to cover the inductor and capacitor, magnetic circuits, Laplace transforms, three-phase circuits, resonant circuits, and Fourier series and its applications.
Electric Circuits: Analysis and Design is ideal for introductory undergraduate courses in electrical circuits.
