EO2102 Basic Electronics and Electrical Machines

An introduction to the fundamental tools of circuit analysis including Kirchhoff's current and voltage laws, series-parallel resistance combinations, voltage and current dividers, superposition, The Venin and Norton equivalent circuits, source transformations, and nodal and mesh analysis. The students are then exposed to frequency domain phasor techniques for analyzing AC circuits. An introduction to power calculations and three-phase systems is next presented. The remainder of the course focuses on the basic operational characteristics of power system components such as transformers, synchronous machines, induction machines, DC machines and power converters.
