This course gives lectures on the basic of electric circuits. The first 3 modules will start with basic theorems and laws
in electric circuits. It will be followed by 3 modules on alternating current (AC) circuits and their transient response.
The achievements of the first half of the course will be evaluated in the mid-term exam. The second half of the course will
be started with lecture on complex notation, followed by complex impedance and power (impedance) matching. The achievements
of the second half of the course will be evaluated in the final exam. Summary and review on exam materials will be given a
week prior to each exams.

This course aims to provide the students with basic knowledge in electric circuits.

- To be able to understand the basic laws and theorems in electrical engineering and use them in electric circuits analysis. These includes Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's Laws, super position theorem and Norton-Thevenin theorem.
- To be able to understand the principle of AC circuits and derive the transient response of simple LCR circuits.
- To be able to understand the concept of complex notation and complex impedance/admittance.
- To be able to understand the power matching principle and analyze a simple power matching circuit.
