Learning Outcomes of the Curricular Unit: | |||

The main objective of this course is to provide the student with basic and practical knowledge about the theory of electrical networks, and analog electronics circuits, as well as to provide the student with general knowledge about the foundations of the electronic systems, including practical knowledge with measurement instruments and real electronic components gained in laboratory sessions. | |||

Syllabus: | |||

Fundamentals. Current, voltage, power and electrical energy conservation. Independent and controlled sources, electrical resistor and Ohm's law. Analysis of resistive networks: Kirchhoff’s laws, series and parallel resistor networks, current and voltage dividers. Superposition theorem, Thevenin's and Norton's theorem. Nodes analysis method. Reactive networks analysis. Capacitor, inductor, series and parallel capacitor and inductor networks, transformer. First-order transient networks analysis: RC and RL networks. AC networks analysis: sinusoidal quantities and alternating current, complex representation, impedance, reactance and admittance, phasor diagrams. First and second order AC networks analysis. Resonant networks. Instantaneous, active, reactive and complex power. Three-phase networks. | |||

Demonstration of the Syllabus Coherence with the Curricular Unit's Objectives: | |||

The syllabus presented before covers the essential and consistent areas of knowledge required to achieve the objectives set out above, as the main topics included in the program, such as: foundations of current, voltage, power, methods for the analysis of resistive networks, reactive networks analysis, AC networks analysis and laboratory projects, cover the main aspects of study that enable students to calculate and implement resistive and reactive electronic circuits, as well as analyse and assemble DC and AC electronic circuits. | |||

Teaching Methodologies (Including Evaluation): | |||

CONTINUOUS ASSESSMENT OF KNOWLEDGE: Two tests (50%), one practical test (25%), four reports/logbook (20%), assiduity, interest and participation in practical laboratory sessions (5%). | |||

Demonstration of the Coherence between the Teaching Methodologies and the Learning Outcomes: | |||

The proposed methodologies are consistent with the objectives set for the course since they rely on the interpretation of the theory and practical application of the circuit analysis concepts studied, establishing a parallel between the theory and the practice applied to real problems of analysis and assemblage of electronic circuits, thereby helping students develop their ability to apply such techniques in electric and electronic circuits used in Computer Systems Engineering. | |||
