ECB 1014 CIRCUIT THEORY

MAY 2012

COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course introduces the fundamental concepts related to the principles of electrical engineering, the
quantities, units, symbols, definitions in the field of electrical engineering, the passive components RLC,
the techniques of analyzing electrical circuits, the concepts of power, the two and three phases circuits. In
addition, the course will also covers fundamental operation of operational amplifiers and their application.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES
Upon the completion of the course, students are expected to be able to:
1. Analyse electric circuits using Ohm, Kirchhoff and Thevenin/Norton theorems
2. Design and analyse of RLC circuits under resonance conditions.
3. Construct analogue arithmetic circuits using operational amplifiers
4. Interpret the various terms of power such as average, RMS, effective, apparent and power factor in
circuits
5. Analyse and compare 1-phase and 3-phase circuits.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION
Examination:
Final examination will be scheduled at the end of the 15 th week. Five (5) questions representing the main
topics covered in the class will be offered from which the students will be required to answer ALL five (5)
questions.

Tests:
Three tests will be given out at the end of the 5 th, 8th and 12th week respectively. Three (3) shorter questions
will be prepared. Students will be required to sit and answer all questions prepared.

Homework/Tutorial Sessions:
Homework will be assigned every week to drill the students on problem solving techniques and enhance
understanding of the concepts covered during the lecture. Some of the assignments will be discussed and
presented during the tutorial sessions, scheduled on alternate week. Only ten (10) best assignments will be
counted for 5% of the course-work contribution. Additional 5% will be counted from the contributions and
participations during the tutorial sessions.

Laboratory Assignments:
Six (6) laboratory assignments will need to be completed by all students by the end of the semester. The lab
sessions will be scheduled on alternate week. Each group of two students must have an A-4 logbook for to
be used for all the experiments. The pre-laboratory preparation report and laboratory report must be written
in the same logbook and it must be submitted at the end of a lab session. At the end of every session,
students are required to submit a report that summarize the experiment completed and results obtained.
Laboratory reports will contribute to 5% of the final marks while the remaining 5% will be from the
practical test to be scheduled at the appropriate time. Any attempt to copy or cheat will result in students
being barred from completing the course.

Attendance:
All students are required to register and enroll in the course module. Failure to register will result in student
being barred from completing the course. Attendance to lectures, tutorials and lab are compulsory.
Absenteeism without valid reason will results in student being barred from taking the final examination.

E-learning:
Students are expected to refer to e-learning for update on course materials and announcements. If it is
required online quizzes and other activities may be assigned using the E-learning.
