Electric Circuit Theory

£4.99

Product description

"This book is intended for use at the level of the first year of a degree course, or equivalent, in electronic or electrical engineering, and should also be of use in the teaching of the electrical content of degree courses in other branches of engineering and in physics and HND courses.

Essential mathematics is treated only briefly, as it is usual for a mathematics course at an appropriate level to form part of the curriculum. Because of the significant variations in the material covered at school in A level physics and mathematics and in ONC and OND courses, the early part of the book aims to provide a common base for all students. The basic laws and techniques are illustrated with reference to d.c. sources and circuits, followed by a study of the transient performance of simple circuits using both the classical and Laplace transform method of solution.

The steady-state performance of linear circuits is introduced, starting with the properties of periodic waves, the complex number representation of sinusoidal quantities and the application of network theorems to a.c. circuits.

Topics covered include resonance, steady-state frequency response (introducing the Bode representation), the parameters of two-port networks, locus diagrams and an introduction to three-phase circuits.

There is a chapter on the analysis of non-sinusoidal waveforms and finally a mention of some electrical measuring instruments likely to be encountered by the student in the course of a laboratory programme. A selection of worked examples an problems is provided, a number of which are drawn from fields that will be encountered by the student later in his course, but they should provide an introduction to a variety of applications of the theory."

Book pages are in very good condition, unmarked except for a feint crease on one corner. Book cover shows some wear at corners and along spine, but is otherwise intact.
