Formulas and Notes for ECE2004
Chapter 1  Basics Electric current = (i): time rate of change of charge, measured in amperes (A).
 Charge = (q): integral of i
 Voltage (or potential difference) = (V): energy required to move a unit charge through an element
 Power = (W): vi = (i^2)R
 Passive sign convention: when the current enters through the positive terminal of an element (p = +vi)
Remember:
+Power absorbed = Power supplied > sum of power in a circuit = 0
 Energy (J) = integral of P 
Chapter 2Ohms Law: v=iR
Conductance (G) = 1/R = i/v
Branch: single element such as a voltage source or a resistor.
Node: point of connection between two or more branches
Loop: any closed path in a circuit.
Kirchhoff’s current law (KCL): algebraic sum of currents entering a node (or a closed boundary) is zero.
Kirchhoff’s voltage law (KVL): algebraic sum of all voltages around a closed path (or loop) is zero.
Voltage D: v1 = ((R1) / (R1 + R2)) * v
Voltage D: v2 = ((R2 / (R1 + R2)) * v
Current D: i1 = (R2 * i) / (R1 + R2)
Current D: i2 = (R1 * i) / (R1 + R2) 
Chapter 3  Methods of AnalysisNodal Analysis: want to fine the node voltages
Step 1:
select reference node
 assign voltages v1 > vn to
remaining nodes
Step 2:
apply KCL to each node
 want to express branch currents in
terms of voltage
Step 3:
solve for unknowns
Important:
current flows from high to low (+ ==> )
SuperNode Properties
1. The voltage source inside the supernode provides a constraint equation needed to solve for the node voltages
2. Supernode had no voltage of its own
3. Supernode requires the application of both KCL and KVL
Mesh Analysis
Step 1:
Assign mesh currents or loops
Step 2:
Apply KVL
 use OHMS LAW to express voltages in terms of the mesh current
Step 3:
Solve for the unknown
Supermesh
 when two meshes have an independent or dependent CURRENT source
between them 
  Chapter 4  Circuit TheoremsSuperposition
principal states that the VOLTAGE ACROSS or CURRENT THROUGH an element in a linear circuit is the SUM of the VOLTAGES OR CURRENTS that are caused after solving for each INDEPENDENT source separately
How to solve a superposition circuit
Step 1: Turn OFF ALL independent sources except for ONE ==> find voltage or current
Step 2: Repeat above for all other independent sources
Step 3: Add all voltages/currents together to find final value
Thevenin's Theorem
V(th) = V(oc)
circuit with Load: I(L) = V(th) / (R(th) + R(L)) ==> V(L) = R(L) I (L) ==> (R(L) / ((R(th) + R(L)) V(th))
Norton's Theorem
R(n) = R(th)
I(n) = i(sc) ==> (sc) = short circuit
I(n) = V(th) / R(th)
Maximum Power Transfer
max power is transferred to the LOAD RESISTOR when the LOAD RESISTOR is EQUAL to the THEVENIN RESISTANCE:
R(L) = R(th)
p(max) = V(th)^{2} / 4R(th) 
Chapter 6  Capacitors and InductorsCapacitors
q = C * v
capacitance: ratio of the charge on one plate to the voltage difference between the two plates
i(t) = C(dv/dt)
v(t) = 1/C [Integral: i(T)dT + v(t0))]
T = time constant
energy (w) = .5Cv^{2}
Important:
VOLTAGE of a capacitor cannot change instantaneously
Capacitors in Series: 1 / Ceq = 1/C1 + 1/C2 + 1/Cn
Capacitors in Parallel: Ceq = C1 + C2 + Cn
Inductors
v = L(di / dt)
i = (1/L) [Integral: (v(T)dT + i(t0)]
energy (w) = .5Li^{2}
Important:
CURRENT through an inductor cannot change instantaneously
Inductors in Series:
Leq = L1 + L2 + Ln
Inductors in Parallel:
1/Leq = 1/L1 + 1/L2 + 1/Ln

OR
v(t) = v(infinity) + [( v(0)  v(infinity)]e^{t/T}
How to solve a STEP RESPONSE OF AN RC CIRCUIT
