Aim of the study element
To teach students to characterise non-linear circuit and use sinusoidal analysis, to understand transition processes, apply nodal analysis and conduct variable current circuit investigation or design.
Having successfully completed this element you will be able to:
- Successfully analyse non–linear circuits of constant and variable currents.
- Analyse and design magnetic circuits, to understand the impact of magnetic components, and make calculations of their parameters.
- Use already known basics about circuits from the first module to create complex circuits with magnetic and non–linear effects.
- Analyse and characterise transient responses of a circuit with complex mathematical tools.
- Understand functions of the circuit components like filters, transformers and others.
- Measure and calculate circuit properties and characteristics.
