Synopses & Reviews

Please note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.

Publisher Comments:

Extracted from the highly successful Foundations of Electrical Engineering by the same author, this book designed for a non-major, one-semester course with coverage of electric circuits, introduces concepts and vocabulary that are defined clearly and accurately, key unifying ideas in electric circuits are identified with icons in the margins, and problem solving techniques are presented in the many examples.

The book presents basic circuit analysis techniques, first and second-order transient analysis, AC circuit theory, transient and steady state circuit analysis based on complex numbers, and an introduction to electric power systems.

The presentation assumes knowledge of basic physics and calculus and is ideal for electrical engineering students with one course in circuits. Used with Foundations of Electronics, this book is ideal for a one-semester course in circuits and electronics for physics, engineering, or computer science students.

FEATURES/BENEFITS

  • Emphasis is placed on clear definitions of concepts and vocabulary.
  • Problems are offered at three levels: "What if" problems extending examples in the text, with answers; "Check our understanding" problems after each major section, with answers, and extensive end-of-chapter problems identified with chapter sections, with answers for odd problems.
  • Full pedagogical tools: chapter objectives, marginal aids, chapter summaries, chapter glossaries tied to context, and a complete index.

Book News Annotation:

Intended for a one-semester course accessible to non- engineering majors, the material in this textbook has its origins in and roughly corresponds to one-third of the author's Foundations of Electrical Engineering. Chapters cover circuit analysis and theory, power in circuits, and electric power systems.

Synopsis:

Provides detailed, clear explanations of the fundamentals of electrical engineering, keeping readers focused on the basics. Maintains a strong emphasis on vocabulary throughout, encouraging further thought and communication based on chapter discussions. This book carefully explores the unifying themes of Electrical Engineering, maintaining a low level of detail and abstract theory. Topics include: Basic Circuit Theory, The Analysis of DC Circuits, The Dynamics of Circuits, The Analysis of AC Circuits, Linear Systems, Power in AC Circuits, and Electric Power Systems.
