ELEC 226: ABET Course Objectives and Outcomes
Students finishing ELEC 226 will
understand fundamental circuit analysis techniques, including
transient, s-domain, and sinusoidal steady-state methods.
Students will be prepared for junior-level courses in electronics
(ELEC 350) and signals and linear systems (ELEC 320).
To achieve the objectives for ELEC 226, we work toward the following
At the conclusion of ELEC 226, students will be able to
- determine the average, reactive, and apparent power
dissipated in a sinusoidal steady-state circuit.
- analyze circuits containing linear and ideal transformers.
- analyze the natural and step response
of RC, RL, and RLC circuits using differential equations.
- analyze circuits using Laplace transforms.
- analyze frequency-selective filters using
transfer functions and Bode plots.
- analyze periodic signals using Fourier series.
- analyze two-port networks using z parameters.
- use PSpice software as a tool for circuit analysis.
- design and construct appropriate lab setups to test
theoretical predictions obtained by circuit analysis.
- maintain a lab notebook that is clear, well-organized, and
sufficiently detailed to allow replication of the experiments.
