Course description
This course gives lectures on the basics 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 lectures 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 of exam materials will be given a week prior to each exam.
Purpose of class
This course aims to provide the students with basic knowledge of electric circuits. These include:
1. four basic law and theorems in electric circuits
2. properties of alternating current and circuit's transient response
3. the concept of complex impedance/admittance
4. principle of power matching
Goals and objectives
1. The students will be able to understand the basic laws and theorems in electrical engineering and use them in electric circuits analysis. These include Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's Laws, superposition theorem, and Norton-Thevenin theorem.
2. The students will be able to understand the principle of AC circuits and derive the transient response of simple LCR circuits.
3. The students will be able to understand the concept of complex notation and complex impedance/admittance.
4. The students will be able to understand the power matching principle and analyze a simple power matching circuit.

Prerequisites
The students who intended to take this course are required to :
1. review the basic electronics from physics at high school (if they take physics at HS)
- Ohm's law, series/parallel connections

2. understand basic arithmetic, simple calculus, and complex number
- lots of calculations use fraction numbers
- the transient response will involve first/second-order differential equations
- imaginary numbers, expressing 2-D vectors using complex numbers
