University: Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava
Faculty: Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Information Technology
Course unit code: B-ASEO1
Course unit title: Analysis and Synthesis of Electric Circuits 1
Mode of delivery, planned learning activities and teaching methods:
lecture3 hours weekly (on-site method)
laboratory/construction practice2 hours weekly (on-site method)

Credits allocated: 6
Recommended semester/trimester: Electrical Engineering - bachelor (compulsory), 6. semester
Level of study: 1.
Prerequisites for registration: none
Assesment methods:
During the semester there will be one written test for 12 points. The student obtains a maximum of 18 points for the experimental exercises and written report of obtained outcomes of these exercises. Students must complete all the exercises. For the exam, a student can earn a maximum of 70 points. The maximum score for the entire course is 100 points. Final evaluation of the student's mark is in accordance with actual study rules.
Learning outcomes of the course unit:
After completing the course the student will get basic information on circuit analysis and choice of parameters of the components involved in simple electronic circuits. Teaching will focus especially on the typical and special applications of operational amplifiers in electronics, linear and switched-mode power supplies. The student will learn the principles of designing the circuit with respect to an optimized energy consumption and sufficient reliability of electronic circuits takes into account economic aspects as well.
Course contents:
Electrical circuit as a linear dynamic system. Closed system and its linearized description. Oscillating conditions. Stability of the linearized circuits system. Feedback in electronic circuits. The principle of feedback. Basic equations of feedback. Classification of feedback according to circuit diagram. Effect of feedback on the circuit parameters. Operational amplifiers and operational networks - basic concepts and definition, linear model, linear and nonlinear parameters. Canonical forms of operational networks. Typical applications. Inverting and non-inverting voltage amplifier. Summing and differential amplifier, integrator, differentiator. Special applications, combined operating networks. Instrumentation amplifier. Transresistance amplifier, modulator, phase-shifter. Comparators, limiters, precision rectifiers, peak detectors. Power Supplies - basic concepts and definitions, basic types and classification by mode of operation (linear, switched mode), block diagrams. Description of the functions and operation principles of the individual blocks. Procedure for design, principles of proper choice of electronic parts and components.
