Preface to Electric Circuits PDF

This book is one of a series for use by students not only as a textbook but also as a guide to good practice in the solution of problems.

The topics in the book have been carefully selected to represent the most popular areas of study in a first-year undergraduate, HND, and HNC courses in Electrical and Electronic engineering.

Each chapter opens with a Fact Sheet containing relevant definitions, principles, theorems, and supporting information.

This is followed by a set of worked examples illustrating the general area of study covered by the chapter. Each chapter concludes with a selection of unworked problems (with answers). The solutions in the book are the responsibility of the authors.

The topics covered include basic electrical and mechanical units, circuit theory including mesh current and node voltage analysis (incorporating both independent and dependent sources).

Alternating waveforms are introduced in a chapter on waveforms and Fourier analysis and, following the treatment of reactance, susceptance, and admittance, a.c. circuits are covered in some depth, including series and parallel circuits, resonance, and frequency response.

The reader is also introduced to the concept of apparent power, power, reactive VA, and power factor improvement.

Two chapters are devoted to circuit theorems, including mesh current and node vo1tage analysis applied to a.c. circuits, Millman's theorem, Thevenin's theorem, Norton's theorem, duality, star-mesh and mesh-star transformations, superposition theorem, reciprocity theorem, compensation theorem, and the maximum power transfer theorem.

Coupled circuits and the transformer are covered, as are polyphase systems, symmetrical components, and the measurement of power. Transients and the Laplace transform are dealt with in a comprehensive chapter.

Finally, the four appendixes cover complex numbers, matrices, determinants, the use of computer software appropriate to the solution of electric circuits, and partial fractions.

It is a simple matter to watch an expert building a structure; how different it becomes when you are faced with the same problem! So it is with Electric Circuit Analysis. It is easy to read how to solve problems, but solving a problem in practice calls for special abilities.

The reader should develop his/her intellectual skills by attempting to solve the problems at the end of each chapter.

Each question should be carefully studied, and possible techniques for its solution should be considered (there are often several ways of solving a given problem!); there are no shortcuts to mastering the technique of problem-solving.

Many of the solutions in this book have been checked using computer software, but not before they have been worked out the hard way using a pen and a calculator.

The authors and publisher wish to thank the Department of Electrical and Electronic Engineering of the Staffordshire Polytechnic and the School of Information Science and Technology of Liverpool Polytechnic for kind permission to publish extracts from examination papers.

The questions selected are, in general, either part questions or short questions that ask for a particular type of solution.

Finally, each author would like to thank his wife, for whom the effort was happily made, for their support and forbearance during the writing of the book.

The authors would also like to thank Mr. W. Roberts for information on SPICE and Andrew Senior for his assistance in the preparation of the book.
