Now in its Ninth Edition, Engineering Circuit Analysis introduces students to the analysis of linear electric circuits from a practical engineering perspective. Students are also exposed to detailed aspects of developing methodical problem-solving skills and the application of computer-aided analysis.
About the Cover
The rapid developments we have experienced in Communications over the past decade make engineering much more of a global activity than ever before, with many projects spanning multiple continents. Circuit analysis remains a cornerstone of electrical engineering, as well as many other engineering fields, so the authors selected this image to represent how the foundation of circuits enables engineers to make a difference on multiple scales.
Over 1000 new and revised end-of-chapter problems.
Dedicated coverage of the concept of energy and calculations related to circuit
power consumption and energy storage in batteries.
Updated transient analysis coverage, including an intuitive explanation of energy transfer in RLC circuits.
Revised coverage of frequency response follows a more natural progression beginning with singular poles/zeroes and then progressing to resonant behavior.
Updates to the Practical Application feature helps students connect material in each chapter to broader concepts in engineering. Topics include distortion in amplifiers, circuits to measure an electrocardiogram, automated external defibrillators, practical aspects of grounding, the relationship of poles to stability, resistivity, and the memristor, sometimes celled "the missing element."
