Course detail

Electronic Circuits

FEKT-MPC-ELOAcad. year: 2023/2024

Students will become familiar with description of linearized electronic circuits that employ modern active elements (network functions and its interpretation) and with associated methods for analysis (sophisticated utilization of modified matrix method of nodal voltages). Course continues by answering questions involving noise analysis, sensitivity and tolerance analysis of electronic circuits and design of passive ladder structures. Then, problems with feedback, system stability and conditions for oscillation are solved. Course finishes with summary of methods for solving nonlinear electronic circuits.

Aim of this subject is to introduce students into the methods of analysis of lumped electronic circuits. Attention is paid on both hand-made calculations and computer-aided solutions using various software.
The graduate is able: (a) autonomously and creatively apply matrix methods to the analysis and synthesis of the linearized circuits with active elements; (b) numerically and graphically solve nonlinear networks; (c) use computer to analyze and design amplifiers, filters, oscillators and similar electronic circuits with lumped parameters.
