Basic Electric Circuit Theory

A One-Semester Text

Author: Isaak D. Mayergoyz,W. Lawson

Publisher: Academic Press

ISBN: 0080572286

Category: Technology & Engineering

Page: 449

View: 603

This is the only book on the market that has been conceived and deliberately written as a one-semester text on basic electric circuit theory. As such, this book employs a novel approach to the exposition of the material in which phasors and ac steady-state analysis are introduced at the beginning. This allows one to use phasors in the discussion of transients excited by ac sources, which makes the presentation of transients more comprehensive and meaningful. Furthermore, the machinery of phasors paves the road to the introduction of transfer functions, which are then used in the analysis of transients and the discussion of Bode plots and filters. Another salient feature of the text is the consolidation into one chapter of the material concerned with dependent sources and operational amplifiers. Dependent sources are introduced as linear models for transistors on the basis of small signal analysis. In the text, PSpice simulations are prominently featured to reinforce the basic material and understanding of circuit analysis. Key Features * Designed as a comprehensive one-semester text in basic circuit theory * Features early introduction of phasors and ac steady-state analysis * Covers the application of phasors and ac steady-state analysis * Consolidates the material on dependent sources and operational amplifiers * Places emphasis on connections between circuit theory and other areas in electrical engineering * Includes PSpice tutorials and examples * Introduces the design of active filters * Includes problems at the end of every chapter * Priced well below similar books designed for year-long courses

Alexander and Sadiku's fifth edition of Fundamentals of Electric Circuits continues in the spirit of its successful previous editions, with the objective of presenting circuit analysis in a manner that is clearer, more interesting, and easier to understand than other, more traditional texts. Students are introduced to the sound, six-step problem solving methodology in chapter one, and are consistently made to apply and practice these steps in practice problems and homework problems throughout the text. A balance of theory, worked examples and extended examples, practice problems, and real-world applications, combined with over 468 new or changed homework problems for the fifth edition and robust media offerings, renders the fifth edition the most comprehensive and student-friendly approach to linear circuit analysis. This edition retains the Design a Problem feature which helps students develop their design skills by having the student develop the question as well as the solution. There are over 100 Design a Problem exercises integrated into the problem sets in the book.

Applied Circuit Analysis 1e is intended to present circuit analysis to engineering technology students in a manner that is clearer, more interesting and easier to understand than other texts. This book was written for a two-semester or three-quarter course in linear analysis. The book may also be used for a one-semester course by a proper selection of chapters and sections by the instructor. It is broadly divided into two parts. Part 1, consisting of Chapters 1 to 10, is devoted to dc circuits. Part 2, containing Chapters 11 to 19, deals with ac circuits. The material in two parts is more than sufficient for a two-semester course so the instructor must select which chapters or sections to cover.
