LINEAR CIRCUITS AND SIGNALS

ELE2CIR

2021

Credit points: 15

Subject outline

This subject studies time domain and frequency domain analysis of linear time-invariant analogue 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 analogue systems are also studied.

Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

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.
02. Employ advanced analytical techniques such as state-space and two-port principles to analyse circuits in the s-domain.
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.
04. Develop time-domain solutions for switched circuits, including establishment of the initial conditions.
05. Construct and analyse circuits to ascertain and document their functionality through measurements.
06. Demonstrate effective written communication skills by presenting an engineering technical report in a clear and logical fashion.
