ELEC 225: ABET Course Objectives and Outcomes
Students finishing ELEC 225 will
understand fundamental circuit analysis techniques, including
sinusoidal steady-state methods.
Students will be prepared to take ELEC 226 in the next semester,
which will include time-domain circuit analysis, Laplace transform
methods, and frequency analysis of circuits and signals using
Fourier series and transforms.
To achieve the objectives for ELEC 225, we work toward the following
At the conclusion of ELEC 225, students will be able to
use fundamental building blocks such as parallel/series resistors,
voltage dividers, and bridge circuits to analyze and design circuits.
- solve linear, simultaneous equations to analyze voltages
and currents in DC and AC (phasor) circuits.
- use phasors and impedances to analyze the frequency
response of a circuit.
- determine the average power dissipated in a circuit.
- analyze a circuit with three-phase voltages.
- analyze op amp circuits with negative feedback and
positive feedback, using ideal as well as
more realistic models for the op amp.
- design op amp circuits to achieve specified functionality.
(a, c, e)
- use PSpice software as a tool for circuit analysis.
- design and construct appropriate lab setups to test
theoretical predictions obtained by circuit analysis.
- design and implement a procedure to determine the electrical
characteristics of an unknown circuit element.
- write lab reports that are clear, well-organized, and
sufficiently detailed to allow replication of the experiments.
