Preface to Circuit Analysis Theory and Practice

The Book and Who It Is For

This textbook is written primarily for students in electronics technology and electrical technology programs, engineering programs, and industrial training programs at colleges, universities, and career schools and in industry.

Its goal continues to be to meet the training needs of today’s students, their professors, and their instructors as it has throughout its four previous editions.

An introductory circuit analysis textbook, it covers fundamentals of dc and ac circuits, methods of analysis, capacitance, inductance, magnetic circuits, basic transients, Fourier analysis, and other topics.

When students successfully complete a course using this book, they will have a good working knowledge of basic circuit principles and a demonstrated ability to solve a variety of circuit-related problems.

Text Organization

The book contains 25 chapters and is divided into 5 main parts: Foundation dc Concepts, Basic dc Analysis, Capacitance and Inductance, Foundation ac Concepts, and Impedance Networks.

Chapters 1 through 4 are introductory. They cover the foundation concepts of voltage, current, resistance, Ohm’s law, and power.

Chapters 5 through 9 focus on dc analysis methods. Included are Kirchhoff’s laws, series and parallel circuits, mesh and nodal analysis, Y and transformations, source transformations, Thévenin’s and Norton’s theorems, the maximum power transfer theorem, and so on.

Chapters 10 through 14 cover capacitance, magnetism, and inductance, plus magnetic circuits and simple dc transients.

Chapters 15 through 17 cover foundation ac concepts; ac voltage generation; and the basic ideas of frequency, period, phase, and so on.

Phasors and the impedance concept are introduced and used to solve simple problems. Power in ac circuits is investigated and the concept of power factor and the power triangle is introduced.

Chapters 18 through 25 then apply these ideas. Topics include ac versions of earlier dc techniques such as mesh and nodal analysis, Thévenin’s theorem, and so on, as well as new ideas such as resonance, filters, Bode techniques, three-phase systems, transformers, and nonsinusoidal waveform analysis. Several appendices round out the book.

Appendix A provides operational instructions, reference material, and tips for PSpice and Multisim users

Appendix B is a math-and-calculator tutorial that describes typical mathematical and calculator usage in circuit analysis—including methods for solving simultaneous equations

Appendix C shows how to apply calculus to derive the maximum power transfer theorem for both dc circuits and ac circuits, while Appendix D contains answers to odd-numbered end-of-chapter problems.

Required Background

Students need a working knowledge of basic algebra and trigonometry and the ability to solve second-order linear equations such as those found in mesh analysis.

They should be familiar with the SI metric system and the atomic nature of matter. Calculus is introduced gradually into later chapters for those who need it.

However, calculus is not an essential prerequisite or corequisite, as all topics can be readily understood without it.

Thus, students who know (or are studying) calculus can use this knowledge to enrich their understanding of circuit theory, whereas, because the calculus parts of the book can be omitted without any loss of continuity, students unfamiliar with calculus can comfortably navigate around it as they work through the chapters.

(Calculus-based material is flagged by an icon to identify it as optional material for advanced learners.)
