Why should I take this course?

## Content Overview

Module "0"

This module provides a very simplified introduction to the basic physics of electric circuits. This is not a rigorous treatment; it is meant to help students make a physical sense of the concepts of electric potentials and currents.

Module 1

- Passive circuit elements: Ohm’s Law, Resistance and Conductance
- Power & Passive Sign Convention
- Nodes, Branches and Loops / Series and shunt elements
- Active circuit elements: Voltage and Current sources

Module 2

- Kirchhoff's Current Law (KCL)
- Kirchhoff's Voltage Law (KVL)
- Resistors in series and parallel
- Voltage and Current dividers

Module 3

This module provides comprehensive treatment of 'Nodal Analysis'.

The module features numerous original examples, encompassing almost every possible scenario that a student may encounter when applying this technique.

Module 4

This module provides a comprehensive treatment of 'Mesh Analysis'.

The module features numerous original examples, encompassing almost every possible scenario that a student may encounter when applying this technique.
