In this course, you will learn about a definition of first-order circuits, as well as look at the various ways to excite first-order circuits and the operations of a source-free RL circuit. The definition of the singularity function and the operations of the step-response for an RC circuit will also be covered in this course. Then, the course will teach you the methods to derive the initial and final values for a second-order circuit.
Then, this course will teach you all about the properties and operations of the RLC circuit. Some problems that are related to step-response of RLC circuits, as well as an introduction to the concept and definition of Laplace transform, will also be covered in this course. Lastly, this course will teach you about the properties of the Laplace transform, and how to obtain the inverse Laplace transform of any circuit.
This course is helpful for learners who want to understand the operations and principles of first-order circuits as well as second-order circuits. Learners can also gain an understanding of the applications, properties and uses of the Laplace transform in electrical circuit analysis.
