Introductory Circuits explains:the laws and analysis of DC circuits including those containingcontrolled sources;AC circuits, focusing on complex currents and voltages, andwith extension to frequency domain performance;opamp circuits, including their use in amplifiers andswitches;change behaviour within circuits, whether intentional(small-signal performance) or caused by unwanted changes incomponents.
In addition to worked examples within the text a number ofproblems for student solution are provided at the end of eachchapter, ranging in difficulty from the simple to the morechallenging. Most solutions for these problems are providedin the book, while others can be found on the accompanyingwebsite.
Introductory Circuits is designed for first yearundergraduate mechanical, biomedical, materials, chemical and civilengineering students who are taking short electrical engineeringcourses and find other texts on the subject too content-heavy fortheir needs. With its clear structure and consistenttreatment of resistive, reactive and small-signal operation, thisvolume is also a great supporting text for mainstream electricalengineering students.
