Circuit Theory Applications

Textbook: Charles K. Alexander, Matthew N. O. Sadiku: Fundamentals of Electric Circuits, 6th ed. Mc Graw Hill.

Anchoring concept: Filters

  • Exploration of passive filters (in more detail) and active filters (briefly) (14.7, 14.8)
  • Determining type of filter “by observation”, by deriving transfer function, or by sketching Bode magnitude plot (14.7, 14.8)
  • Finding cutoff frequency, center frequency, BW and Q, if applicable (14.7, 14.8)
  • The idea of filter scaling (magnitude, phase or both) (14.9)
