This course provides a basic study on analysis of electric circuit where the students will be exposed to a more advanced techniques.
The course will be given in the form of lectures and exercises to help the students have a better understanding and proficiency
in analyzing electric circuit. The first 3 modules will start with the study on resonant circuits, mutual induction and transformer
circuits. It will be followed by 2 modules on circuit analysis method using mesh and nodal analysis. 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 by revisiting
Thevenin's theorem followed by lectures on circuit theorems such as Tellegen's theorem, compensation theorem, etc. The last
2 modules will explain the characterization of linear network using 2-port parameters. 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.
