Periodic non-sinusoidal currents and voltages are those that change in a periodical non-sinusoidal way. It may happen when the source is generating non-sinusoidal signals, and…
Advanced Circuit Analysis: Preface
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.
- Non–linear DC electric circuits.
- Magnetic circuits.
- Non–linear AC electric circuits.
- Transient processes in non–linear electric circuits.
- Electric circuits with variable parameters.
- Sinusoidal and network analysis.
- Two-point networks.
- Complex frequency.
Transient processes in electrical circuits are the processes of transition from one work regime to another, that differ with parameters. Transient processes are caused…
Non-linear electric circuits contain non-linear components. Non-linear electric components are characterised with non-linear volt-ampere characteristics, as depicted on the figure below. Non-linear components can…
Magnetic circuit is a set of components, combined in one circuit, that create a magnetic field loop. In calculating magnetic circuits we must remember…
Non-linear AC circuits are AC circuits containing non-linear components. Nonlinear components can be resistive, capacitive, and inductive. Non-linear resistors can be inertial, and non-inertial.…
