Fundamental knowledge of electric circuit sources and elements, basic mathematics (integration, differentiation, etc.)


Students of EC Engineering need to possess good understanding of concepts and principles of passive circuit analysis and synthesis by applying various circuit laws and theorems. This is one of the foundation courses which are required to understand the concepts of advanced courses and develop skills that are needed in Electronics field.

Course Outcome
  1. To apply various circuit laws like Ohm’s Law, KVL, KCL, etc.
  2. To apply dot convention technique for analysis of transformer based circuits.
  3. To apply node and mesh circuit analysis techniques..
  4. To apply various network theorems such as Superposition, Thevenin, Norton, Reciprocity, Maximum Power Transfer, Millman's Theorem, etc..
  5. To analyze behavior of passive circuits such as RC, RL and RLC.
  6. To apply Laplace Transform for circuit analysis.
  7. To obtain transfer function of a network.
  8. To analyze circuit taking into account initial conditions.
  9. To calculate two port parameters such as y, z, h, ABCD, etc. for the given two port network.
  10. To understand basics of network topologies and the tieset and cutset schedules.
  11. To understand basics of network synthesis from the transfer function.

Active Learning

Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
