Electrical circuit theory is a required subject in the field of electrical engineering and applicable to many disciplines.
In this course, students learn circuit theory with a focus on Ohm’s law and Kirchhoff’s law and acquire principle theory required
for analysis of alternating current (AC) circuits. Then, learning contents are progressed from basic circuits to networks.
Students learn array expressing features of a network.

The purpose of this course is to learn principle concepts required in electrical circuit, principal theory required for analysis
of AC circuits, and concepts and mathematical expressions required for network analysis.

- Students can understand direct current circuit, alternating current circuit, and complex number/vector symbol method required for analysis of AC circuits
- Students can set up and analyze equations for electrical circuits
- Students can understand mathematical expressions of networks by using arrays and functions
