Objectives
THE COURSE PROVIDES THE BASIC METHODOLOGICAL TOOLS TO ANALYZE ELECTRICAL AND ELECTRONIC CIRCUITS. IN PARTICULAR, LINEAR TIME-INVARIANT CIRCUITS ARE STUDIED IN STATIONARY CONDITIONS (DIRECT AND ALTERNATING SINUSOIDAL CURRENT).

KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING.
AT THE END OF THE COURSE THE STUDENT WILL KNOW:
- METHODS FOR THE ANALYSIS OF LINEAR TIME-INVARIANT (LTI) CIRCUITS CONTAINING ONE AND TWO-PORTS
- CONSEQUENCES OF CIRCUIT LINEARITY: SUPERPOSITION, EQUIVALENT GENERATORS OF VOLTAGE AND CURRENT
- POWER AND ENERGY ADSORBED AND GENERATED;
CONSERVATION PRINCIPLE OF VIRTUAL AND REAL POWER
- ANALYSIS AN SYNTHESIS OF LINEAR TWO-PORTS WITH CONTROLLED GENERATORS
- PHASOR METHOD FOR THE ANALYSIS OF CIRCUITS CONTAINING DYNAMIC COMPONENTS (INDUCTOR, CAPACITOR) WITH AC SOURCES.

APPLYING KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING.
AT THE END OF THIS COURSE, STUDENTS WILL BE ABLE TO:
• SOLVE FOR CURRENT, VOLTAGE, STORED ENERGY, AND POWER IN LINEAR TIME INVARIANT DC CIRCUITS USING THE FOLLOWING TECHNIQUES: KIRCHHOFF’S CURRENT AND VOLTAGE LAWS, SUPERPOSITION, NODE VOLTAGE ANALYSIS, MESH CURRENT ANALYSIS AND SOURCE TRANSFORMATIONS;
• DETERMINE THEVENIN AND NORTON EQUIVALENT SOURCES;
• ANALYZE AND DESIGN LINEAR TWO PORTS, INCLUDING CONTROLLED SOURCES VOLTAGE;
• CALCULATE VOLTAGE, CURRENT, POWER AND ENERGY STORED IN LINEAR TIME INVARIANT AC CIRCUITS BY EMPLOYING PHASORS.
MAKING JUDGEMENTS.
ABILITY TO IDENTIFY THE MOST APPROPRIATE METHODS TO ANALYZE LINEAR TIME INVARIANT CIRCUITS.

COMMUNICATION SKILLS.
ABILITY TO DESCRIBE IN WRITTEN FORM AND PRESENT IN A CLEAR AND CONCISE WAY THE PROCESS AND RESULTS OF PERFORMED CALCULATIONS.

LEARNING SKILLS.
BEING ABLE TO APPLY THEIR KNOWLEDGE IN CONTEXTS DIFFERENT FROM THOSE PRESENTED DURING THE COURSE, AND DEEPEN THE TOPICS USING MATERIALS OTHER THAN THOSE PROPOSED.

Teaching Methods
THE COURSE INCLUDES CLASSROOM LECTURES AIMED AT PRESENTING THE THEORY AND NUMERICAL EXCERCISES TO STRENGTHEN THE OPERATIONAL SKILLS. THE EXERCISES ASSIGNED TO STUDENTS ARE SOLVED IN CLASS BY THE TEACHER USING THE TECHNIQUES PRESENTED IN THEORY LECTURES. THE EXCERCISES ARE LED BY THE TEACHER TO DEVELOP THE STUDENT'S ABILITY TO IDENTIFY THE MOST APPROPRIATE SOLUTION TECHNIQUES AND PRESENT THE RESULTS IN A CLEAR AND EFFICIENT WAY.
Verification of learning
THE EXAM INCLUDES A WRITTEN AND ORAL TEST. TO ACCESS THE ORAL EXAM, YOU MUST PASS THE WRITTEN TEST WITH A MINIMUM GRADE OF 18/30. DURING THE COURSE, PARTIAL WRITTEN EXONERATIVE TESTS ARE SCHEDULED.

THE WRITTEN TEST IS AIMED AT EVALUATING THE OPERATIONAL CAPABILITIES IN STUDYING CIRCUITS IN STATIC AND SINUSOIDAL CONDITIONS. IT INCLUDES TWO EXERCISES TO BE SOLVED IN 90 MINUTES CONCERNING A CIRCUIT IN A DC STEADY STATE (NORMALLY A TWO-PORT) AND A CIRCUIT IN THE SINUSOIDAL REGIME. THE PROPOSED QUESTIONS CONCERN THE CALCULATION: A) OF THE CHARACTERISTIC PARAMETERS OF THE TWO-PORTS WITH CONTROLLED GENERATORS; B) THE PARAMETERS OF EQUIVALENT GENERATORS (THEVENIN, NORTON); C) OF VOLTAGES AND CURRENTS IN CIRCUITS IN SINUSOIDAL REGIME WITH THE PHASOR METHOD; POWER AND ENERGY.
- THE ORAL EXAM, IN WHICH THE STUDY OF CIRCUITS CAN BE REQUESTED, AIMS AT EVALUATING THE LEVEL OF THEORETICAL KNOWLEDGE, THE AUTONOMY IN THE ANALYSIS AND JUDGMENT, AS WELL AS THE STUDENT'S EXPOSITORY SKILLS. IN PARTICULAR, QUESTIONS ARE PROPOSED ON THE PRINCIPLES DERIVING FROM THE LINEARITY OF CIRCUITS, ON THE CONSERVATION OF POWER AND ENERGY, ON THE ANALYSIS OF TRANSIENTS OF THE FIRST ORDER.

THE EVALUATION OF THE TESTS TAKES INTO ACCOUNT THE ABILITY TO IDENTIFY THE MOST APPROPRIATE METHODS TO ANALYZE LINEAR TIME-INVARIANT CIRCUITS, THE ABILITY TO EXPOSE CLEARLY AND CONCISELY THE OBJECTIVES, THE PROCEDURE AND THE RESULTS OF THE ELABORATIONS CARRIED OUT, AS WELL AS THE ABILITY TO DEEPEN THE TOPICS PROCESSED USING MATERIALS OTHER THAN THOSE PROPOSED.

THE MINIMUM LEVEL OF EVALUATION (18/30) IS ATTRIBUTED WHEN THE STUDENT DEMONSTRATES UNCERTAINTIES IN THE APPLICATION OF THE SOLUTION METHODS OF THE PROPOSED CIRCUITS, HAS LIMITED KNOWLEDGE OF THE MAIN PROPERTIES OF THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COMPONENTS AND CIRCUITS AND LOW EXPOSITORY CAPACITY.
THE MAXIMUM LEVEL (30/30) IS ATTRIBUTED WHEN THE STUDENT DEMONSTRATES A COMPLETE AND THOROUGH KNOWLEDGE OF THE METHODS AND IS ABLE TO SOLVE THE PROPOSED PROBLEMS BY IDENTIFYING THE MOST APPROPRIATE METHODS TO ANALYZE THE CIRCUITS AND SHOWS A REMARKABLE ABILITY TO CONNECT AND EXPOSE THE PROPERTIES OF THE DIFFERENT TYPES OF COMPONENTS AND CIRCUITS.
THE FINAL GRADE, RANGING FROM 18/30 (MINIMUM) TO 30/30 + LAUDE (MAXIMUM) IS OBTAINED AS THE AVERAGE OF THE TWO TESTS.
THE LAUDE IS ATTRIBUTED WHEN THE CANDIDATE SHOWS A SIGNIFICANT MASTERY OF THE THEORETICAL AND OPERATIONAL CONTENTS AND SHOWS THE ABILITY TO PRESENT THE TOPICS WITH REMARKABLE PROPERTIES OF LANGUAGE AND AUTONOMOUS PROCESSING CAPACITY EVEN IN CONTEXTS DIFFERENT FROM THOSE PROPOSED BY THE TEACHER.
