Principles of Electric Circuits 电路原理 (edX)

Created by:Delivered by:

Electricity is almost everywhere. Our civilization involves constant utilization of electricity, and electric circuits are important tools for this. In Principles of Electric Circuits , you will learn sufficient techniques for analyzing and designing 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, e.g. filters, resonance, quiescent point, etc., cutting-edge elements, e.g. MOSFETs and Op Amps, etc., systematic analyzing tools, e.g. node method and phasor method, etc., and real-world engineering applications, e.g. 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.

What you'll learn:

- Math basics for studying circuits

- Techniques for analyzing circuits with any scale and containing any element

- Real world applications of circuits

- Concepts related to EECS courses, e.g. signals and systems, electronics, etc.

- Perspectives needed for qualified engineers, e.g. engineering, equivalence, and abstraction
