Principles of Electric Circuits
Principles of Electric Circuits (20220214x) is one of the kernel courses in the broad EECS subjects. Almost all the required courses in EECS are based on the concepts learned in this course, so it's the gateway to a qualified EECS engineer.
The main content of this course contains linear and nonlinear resistive circuits, time domain analysis of the dynamic circuits, and the steady state analysis of the dynamic circuits with sinusoidal excitations. Important concepts, eg filters, resonance, quiescent. point cut, et ting edge elements, eg MOSFETs and Op Amps, etc., systematic analyzing tools, eg node method and phasor method, etc., and real-world engineering applications, eg square wave generator and pulse power supply for railgun, etc., will be discussed in depth.
In order to facilitate the learning for students with middle school level, we prepare the necessary knowledge for calculus and linear algebra in week 0. With your effort, we can show you the fantastic view of electricity.
The course of circuit theory is the most important basic course for all electrical majors. Subsequent basic and professional courses of each major are based on the knowledge system of this course, so it is one of the "home lessons" for undergraduates majoring in electrical. The main content of the circuit theory course includes: linear resistance circuit analysis, nonlinear resistance circuit analysis, time-domain analysis of dynamic circuits and steady-state analysis of dynamic circuits under sinusoidal excitation. The teaching of Tsinghua University's circuit theory course includes basic methods of circuit analysis, contemporary circuit components, and practical engineering applications of circuit principles, etc., providing students with a solid foundation and rich applications.
In order to facilitate the learning of students with only middle school knowledge, Circuit Theory MOOC specially uses the 0th week to prepare the necessary foundations of calculus, linear algebra and college physics electricity. We are confident: you can comprehend the wonder of the electric world.
