LINEAR CIRCUITS AND SIGNALS

ELE2CIR

2020

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject studies time domain and frequency domain analysis of linear time-invariant analog and digital systems. Topics include steady-state AC analysis and phasor techniques, resonant circuits, transient analysis, the Fourier and the Laplace Transform. Also studied are transfer functions, poles and zeros, pole-zero plots in the s-plane, characteristics of the s-plane, stability in the s-plane and Bode plots. Frequency response of digital and analog systems are also studied.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Analyse DC and AC circuits to determine the currents flowing through, voltages across and power (real or reactive) delivered or absorbed by elements in a circuit.

Activities:
Demonstrations on each of the different techniques are provided in lectures. Students then practise these in problem solving classes, assignments and laboratories.

02. Employ advanced analytical techniques such as state-space and two-port principles to analyse circuits in the s-domain.

Activities:
Demonstrations on each of the different techniques are provided in lectures. Students then practise these in problem solving classes, assignments and laboratories.

03. Develop transfer functions in the s-domain for passive and active circuits, create Bode phase and magnitude plots and determine circuit output functions for a variety of inputs such as step and ramp.

Activities:
Demonstrations on each of the different techniques are provided in lectures. Students then practise these in problem solving classes, assignments and laboratories.

04. Develop time-domain solutions for switched circuits, including establishment of the initial conditions.

Activities:
Demonstrations on each of the different techniques are provided in lectures. Students then practise these in problem solving classes, assignments and laboratories.

05. Construct and analyse circuits to ascertain and document their functionality through measurements.

Activities:
Students construct and analyse circuits in the laboratory classes.

06. Demonstrate effective written communication skills by presenting an engineering technical report in a clear and logical fashion.

Activities:
Examples of clear, concise technical notation provided in lectures. Students practise this in assignments and laboratory reports.
