This course explains how to analyze circuits that have direct current (DC) current or voltage sources. A DC source is one that is constant. Circuits with resistors, capacitors, and inductors are covered, both analytically and experimentally. Some practical applications in sensors are demonstrated.


Module 1: Introduction
This module reviews background material from physics on the basic properties of electricity and electrical circuits.

Module 2
The module describes some basic principles used in circuit analysis.

Module 3
This module demonstrates physical resistive circuits and introduces several systematic ways to solve circuit problems.

Module 4
This module introduces additional methods for analyzing circuit problems and how resistors are used in sensors.

Module 5
This module introduces capacitors and inductors, which are called "reactive" circuit elements.

Module 6
This module introduces the transient response behavior of RC and RL circuits after a switch in a circuit is changed.

Module 7
This module demonstrates useful applications of capacitors and inductors in real engineering systems and introduces the behavior of second-order reactive circuits.

Uğur is taking this course right now, spending 6 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be medium.
Teaching material is very good and Prof. Ferri is really good at teaching the concepts. Recitation is harder and explanations to those recitations made me sleepy to be honest. After trying to stay awake, I unfortunately had the ditch recitation part. Other than that, course actually could be good but there is a fatal mistake.

Most of the quizzes and questions are flawed since the beginning of the course, there is no support on the forums except others taking the course with you. Known mistakes are still there and Georgia Tech does nothing to make the course better. If this were ju…
