Course Objectives To enable students understanding the concepts of Electrical and Electronics engineering and solution methods related with DC circuits for the purposes of EASA-66 Module 3. Students learn basic circuit elements. Also students learn how to use and apply Ohm, Kirchhoff Laws, basic circuit laws and nodal, mesh analysis for DC circuits. Additionally students can analyze first order circuits.
Course Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Ability to recognize circuit elements
  • Ability to know basic concepts and definitions (Voltage, current, load, power, etc.)
  • Ability to explain basic laws (Ohm, Kirchhoff Laws)
  • Ability to implement circuit analysis methods
  • Ability to know circuit theorems (Linearity, Superposition, Thevenin, Norton Theorems)
  • Ability to know and implement voltage-current (V-I) charecteristics and behavior of circuit elements
  • Ability to know basic structure, types and attitude of Op-amps.
  • Ability to know working principles and structures of different battery types used in air vehicles
  • Ability to analyze first order RC and RL circuits
  • Ability to know the behaviors of second order RLC circuits
Course Content Introduction to general concepts of electric and electronics, basic laws (Ohm?s law, Kirchhoff laws), methods of circuit analysis (nodal and mesh analysis), circuit theorems (Thevenin, Norton, superposition), operational amplifiers, capacitors, inductors, batteries, first-order circuits, second-order circuits.
