The unit introduces students to the fundamentals of electrical systems. The unit begins by introducing the concepts of electric charge, electric fields and electric potential. Capacitance, resistance, inductance and EMF are then covered. This is followed by a study of alternating current and resistor-capacitor, resistor-inductor, resistor-inductor-capacitor circuits. The unit then has a focus on circuit analysis using voltage dividers, KCL and KVL, voltage and current sources, Thevenin’s theorm. Semiconductor devices are then introduced and the characteristics and application of diodes, rectifiers, bipolar-junction transistors and op-amps are considered.
Examination 50%, practical reports 25%, problem-solving assignment 25%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve an overall mark of at least 40% in the examination.
