This course explains how to analyze circuits that have direct current (DC) current or voltage sources. A DC source is one that is constant. Circuits with resistors, capacitors, and inductors are covered, both analytically and experimentally. Some practical applications in sensors are demonstrated.

Graded: Module 2 Quiz
This module demonstrates physical resistive circuits and introduces several systematic ways to solve circuit problems.
Graded: Module 3 Quiz
This module introduces additional methods for analyzing circuit problems and how resistors are used in sensors.
Graded: Module 4 Quiz
This module introduces capacitors and inductors, which are called “reactive” circuit elements.
Graded: Module 5 Quiz
This module introduces the transient response behavior of RC and RL circuits after a switch in a circuit is changed.
Graded: Module 6 Quiz
This module demonstrates useful applications of capacitors and inductors in real engineering systems and introduces the behavior of second-order reactive circuits.
