Introductory Circuit Analysis is the number one acclaimed text in the field for over three decades, is a clear and interesting information source on a complex topic. The introductory circuit analysis featuring clear explanation, step-by-step examples, number of practical applications, comprehensive coverage of essentials, accessible foundation and challenging problems for further explanation. The book also highlights key concepts, equations, figures and tables, chapter openings, and problem sections in color. Exposes students to the diversity of people involved in the development of circuit analysis.
The introductory circuit analysis book introduces the use of software as engineering tools i.e. PSpice OrCAD, Multisim, Electronic Workbench, OrCad, and MathCad. The computer programs like C++ and Basic are also included in the book with original color.
The book starts with the brief history of electronics and units used in engineering, scientific number representation, and its conversion. Where the second chapter starts from the atom structure and basic electrical engineering definitions.
The introductory circuit analysis also touches the magnetic circuits and inductors in detail in chapter 11 and 12. Then the book shift from DC circuit to an AC circuit by introducing AC waveforms, phasors and resistor network analysis for AC circuit.
In AC circuits, the book discusses the resonance circuits, transformers, and polyphase systems. Finally, it introduces filters, transient response, nonsinusoidal circuits and system analysis.
