Electric and electronic engineering are used in every field of technology, and all the people studying science and/or technology should have a basic knowledge and understanding of electric and electronic engineering.

This course consists of lectures in the classroom with exercises dealing with practical problems.

Students are expected to acquire the knowledge and techniques related to DP1.

Important contents to be learned in this course are:

1. characteristics of circuit elements: power source, resistance (R), coil (L) and condenser (C)

2. basics of direct current (DC) circuits: Ohm's law, Kirchhoff's rules, principle of superposition, combined resistance

3. basics of alternating current (AC) circuits: cyclic behaviors of voltage and current, impedance of R, L and C

4. calculation of voltages and currents in DC and in AC circuits, resonance circuits

The first objective is to learn and understand the basic knowledge required in dealing with electricity, such as voltage, current, and interaction between electricity and magnetism.

The second objective is to understand how resistances, condensers and coils work in direct current (DC) circuit and alternating current (AC) circuit.

The third objective is that students are able to calculate voltages or currents at various points in electrical circuit.

Grading policy is based on the results of final examination (80%) and on exercise answers at each class (30%).
