Circuit Theory

This wikibook is an introductory text about electric circuits. It will cover some of the basics of electric circuit theory, circuit analysis, and will touch on circuit design.


This book will serve as a companion reference for a 1st year student of an Electrical Engineering undergraduate curriculum. Topics covered include AC and DC circuits, passive circuit components, phasors, and RLC circuits. This book will attempt to cover linear circuits, and linear circuit elements. We will start off discussing some of the basic building blocks of circuits (wires and resistors), and we will discuss how to use them and how to analyze them. We will then move into chapters on Capacitors and Inductors. The second half of this book will then start to talk about AC power, and will go into some basic techniques for understanding and solving AC circuits. This book will discuss the Laplace and Fourier Transforms, but will not cover them completely, opting instead to let later books in the series (specifically the Signals and Systems book) cover them in depth.
