The course is based on classroom lectures. The resolution of the exercises is done by analytical methods. Pspice will be used for the analysis of electrical circuits.
Assessment methods and criteria
The exam is based on written examination
The written examination includes:
a) 2 exercises on the analysis of electrical circuits (maximum score 8 points each). Approximately 1 exercise will focus on the analysis of DC circuits and 1 on the analysis of AC circuits
b) 2 theory questions (maximum score 8 points each) on the topics covered in the course. All topics covered in the course may be required, but the questions will focus particularly on issues unverified (or not exhaustively verified) from the exercises on the analysis of electrical circuits.
