## Introduction to Electric Circuits by Ray Powell

##### Book Description:

An Introduction to Electric Circuits is essential reading for first year students of electronics and electrical engineering who need to get to grips quickly with the basic theory. This text is a comprehensive introduction to the topic and, assuming virtually no knowledge, it keeps the mathematical content to a minimum.
As with other textbooks in the series, the format of this book enables the student to work at their own pace. It includes numerous worked examples throughout the text and graded exercises, with answers, at the end of each section.

## Preface to Introduction to Electric Circuits

In recent times there have been many modifications within the construction of undergraduate programs in engineering and the method is constant. With the appearance of modularization, semesterization and the transfer in direction of student-centred studying as class contact time is lowered, college students and lecturers alike are having to regulate to new strategies of studying and educating.

Important Electronics is a sequence of textbooks supposed to be used by college students on diploma and diploma stage programs in electrical and digital engineering and associated programs resembling manufacturing, mechanical, civil and common engineering.

Every textual content is full in itself and is complementary to different books within the sequence. A function of those books is the acknowledgement of the brand new tradition outlined above and of the truth that college students coming into larger schooling are actually, by means of no fault of their very own, much less properly geared up in arithmetic and physics than college students of ten and even 5 years in the past.

With quite a few labored examples all through, and additional issues with solutions on the finish of every chapter, the texts are perfect for directed and unbiased studying.

The early books within the sequence cowl matters usually discovered within the first and second 12 months curricula and assume just about no earlier information, with arithmetic being saved to a minimal. Later ones are supposed for examine at remaining 12 months stage.

The authors are all extremely certified chartered engineers with broad expertise in larger schooling and in business.

This e-book covers the fabric usually present in first and second 12 months syllabuses on the subject of electrical circuits.

It’s supposed to be used by diploma and diploma college students in electrical and digital engineering and within the related areas of built-in, manufacturing and mechanical engineering. The 2 most essential areas of examine for all electrical and digital engineering college students are these of circuit principle and electromagnetic discipline principle.

These lay the muse for the understanding of the remainder of the themes which make up a coherent course and they’re intimately associated. Texts on one among them invariably and inevitably have references to the opposite.

In Chapter 2 of this e-book the components of electrical circuits are launched and the circuit parts having properties known as capacitance and inductance are related to electrical and magnetic fields respectively.

Faraday’s regulation is essential within the idea of mutual inductance and its results. Reference is made, due to this fact, to electromagnetic discipline principle on a necessity to know foundation, some formulae being introduced with out proof.

The extent of arithmetic required right here has been saved to a sensible minimal. Some facility with algebra (transposition of formulae) and information of fundamental trigonometry and elementary differentiation and integration is assumed.

I’ve included properly over 100 labored examples inside the textual content and an analogous variety of issues with solutions. On the finish of every chapter there’s a sequence of self-assessment take a look at questions.

I’m most grateful to quite a few nameless reviewers for his or her constructive criticism and solutions. I’m additionally indebted to the numerous authors whose books I’ve consulted through the years.

My thanks are due to Eur Ing Professor Peter Holmes for encouraging me to write this e-book, to Allan Waters for permission to use a few of his issues, to the numerous college students with whom I’ve had the pleasure of working and whose questions have helped kind this e-book and never least to my spouse Janice for her persistence within the face of deadline-induced irritability.
