Prerequisite courses : -
Concurrent courses : ELE203
Delivery modes : Face-to-Face
Learning and teaching strategies : Question and Answer, Experiment, Other: This course must be taken together with 'ELE203 Circuit Theory I' course.
Course objective : The objectives of the course are to support basic theories that the students gain with ELE 203 Circuit Theory I course by performing experimental studies, teach the major measurement parameters and develop their evaluation skills on experimental results related to important circuit theories.
Learning outcomes : A student who completes the course successfully will Use basic measurement devices, Define circuit variables and perform their measurements, Examine time varying responses through capacitive and inductive circuits, Observe and evaluate the results obtained from both theoretical and experimental studies.
Course content : 1. Measurements of voltage and current in DC circuits, verification of Kirchhoff?s Laws, Norton and Thévenin Theorems, power calculations, 2. Measurements of amplitude, frequency and phase of signals by using the oscilloscope, 3. Analysis of Lissajous patterns, 4. Observation of the responses of first order RL circuits, 5. Observation of the responses of first order RC circuits, 6. Observation of the responses of second order RLC circuits.
