ECE 280 Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering

Spring Semester

This course builds upon DC circuit analysis techniques learned in ECE100 to expand these analytical techniques to circuits involving resistors, capacitors, and inductors (e.g., Kirchoff’s laws, nodal and mesh analyses, and superposition) in both steady state and transient cases.  Steady state AC circuit analysis is performed using concepts of phasors, impendance, frequency response, filtering, damping, resonance, and power.  The transient response of first and second order circuits are principally examined.  Operational amplifiers and related topics such as feedback, stability, gain-bandwidth product, and compensation are studied, focusing on typical circuit applications. A hands-on laboratory component supplements the theoretical analysis to enhance student learning and to build practical circuit applications.  Prerequisite: 2.0 or higher in   and PHY 260  and either FCO 105  or WRT 102
