Summary: Fundamentals of Electric Circuits, 2e is intended for use in the introductory circuit analysis or circuit theory course taught in electrical engineering or electrical engineering technology departments. The main objective of this book is to present circuit analysis in a clear, easy-to-understand manner, with many practical applications to interest the student.Edition/Copyright: 2ND 04
Each chapter opens with either historical sketches or career information on a subdiscipline of ele ...show morectrical engineering. This is followed by an introduction that includes chapter objectives. Each chapter closes with a summary of the key points and formulas.
The authors present principles in an appealing and lucid step-by-step manner, carefully explaining each step. Important formulas are highlighted to help students sort out what is essential and what is not. Many pedagogical aids reinforce the concepts learned in the text so that students get comfortable with the various methods of analysis presented in the text.
New Features :
- A new chapter (Chapter 16) has been added to augment Chapter 15 on Laplace Transforms. It covers applications of the Laplace Transform, and includes information on how MATLAB can be used to numerically perform the operations presented in chapters 15 and 16.
- A new appendix (Appendix E) has been added to provide a tutorial on MATLAB and encourage its usage in circuit analysis. Appendix D on PSpice has been upgraded.
- The CD-ROM from the first edition has been upgraded to included the following: MultSIM 2001 Textbook Edition and more than 125 circuit files from the book are presented in Electronics Workbench.
- The second edition Online Learning Center, which provides material for students and instructors, includes the following: solutions manual (for instructors only) in COSMOS and PDF format, JPEGS of all the figures, PowerPoint slides, web links, network analysis tutorials, FE Exam Review Questions, sample pages from the companion workbook, learning objectives, and flashcards.
- COSMOS - contains the entire book problem set, enhanced to include any referenced images or text, as well as the entire solution set for the book. In addition, this application will help you organize, distribute, and track problem sets from the text book as you assign them to your students.
- McGraw-Hill NetGrade is a powerful new online system for homework, testing and quizzing in engineering. This web-based assessment and homework management system features algorithmically-generated homework problems and automatic grading capabilities. Based on the text end-of-chapter problems, this system gives each student a new version of a given problem type with a unique answer. It is available online and requires no special software.
- Key features include: Assignment answers can be automatically graded online, delivering immediate feedback to students. Students can also print out a unique problem set, work the solution by hand, and submit complete solutions for instructor grading. Instructors can manage their course by posting assignments, receiving grades in a customizable gradebook, and collecting class performance data.
- Tront's PSpice for Basic Circuit Analysis introduces readers to the fundamental uses of PSpice in support of basic circuit analysis. This book is designed so that the reader may advance rapidly to solving a variety of circuit analyses. Although the fundamental capabilities of PSpice are covered in this book, the principles can easily extend to analyze the complex electrical and electronic networks used in modern integrated circuit design today.
