This introductory subject assumes no prior knowledge of electronics. The unit consists of two components: DC and AC Circuit Analysis. The first component introduces elementary circuit analysis techniques and applies them to DC circuits. The second component extends these analysis techniques and applies them to AC Circuits. At the end of the subject, students will be familiar with: circuit theory, sinusoidal and non-sinusoidal waveforms, phasors, impedance, network theorems, measurement systems, instruments and DC/AC applications.
