Linear Circuits by Georgia Institute of Technology

Online course on Linear Circuits by Georgia Institute of Technology. This course allows students to learn Learn the analysis of circuits including resistors, capacitors, and inductors. This course is directed towards people who are in science or engineering fields outside of the disciplines of electrical or computer engineering.


About the course
This course is a first introduction to electrical systems. It includes the analysis of circuits including resistors, capacitors, and inductors with DC and AC sources in the time domain and in the frequency domain. The course is targeted at people with a scientific or technical background who are not electrical or computer engineers.

Course Syllabus
This course is broken into five Modules, each having associated homework and a quiz:

Module 1: Background (1 week): Background information on electricity, resistors, and circuit diagrams

Module 2: Resistive Circuits (2 weeks): Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's Law, resistors in series and in parallel, systematic solution methods, physical applications, and lab demos

Module 3: Reactive Circuits (2 weeks) : Capacitors, inductors, first and second order differential equations, RC and RL and RLC circuit steady-state and transient response to a DC source, physical applications, lab demos

Module 4: Frequency Analysis (2 weeks): AC response, impedance, transfer functions, frequency response, filtering, applications, lab demos

Module 5 (1 week): Real and reactive power, power factor, transformers

Completed a first course in calculus, have a working knowledge of matrices and linear algebra, complex numbers, been introduced to basic circuit elements at the level commonly covered in a college physics course.

Course Format
This class will consist of lecture videos, most of which are between 10 and 12 minutes in length. There will be required homework assignments and quizzes and optional laboratory assignments.

Course Sessions
August 18, 2014 - October 27, 2014
