Relationship to Student Outcomes
No student outcomes specified.
Course Learning Outcomes. Students will:

1. Design and conduct laboratory experiments to analyze linear RLC , OP Amp, diode, filter circuits.

2. Describe and present steps/procedures involved in analyzing data obtained from laboratory experiments.

Prerequisites by Topic

Understanding of basic RLC circuits. Understanding of Op Amps, dependent sources, independent sources and energy-storage elements at Understanding of first and second order linear RLC circuits

Lecture Topics:


Class Schedule:

Meets for 3 hours of laboratory each week for 10 weeks.

Computer Usage:

PCs to do the measurement analysis for curve fitting and error estimates.

Laboratory Projects:

Measurement of AC voltages, peak-to-peak sinusoids and resistance using a multimeter and an oscilloscope. The voltmeter and the oscilloscope will be used to determine the output voltage of a voltage divider network. To apply the mesh analysis to describe the ideal behavior of a multi-port network and to compare the measured and calculated values for the input resistance and the output voltage. To observe and measure the transient voltage response of an RLC circuit and to estimate the time constant and capacitor value for the RLC circuit. To observe and measure the sinusoidal steady-state response (transfer function's magnitude and phase shift) of an RLC circuit. To observe and measure Resonance in an RLC resonant circuit by measuring its frequency response (transfer function's magnitude and phase shift) for an RLC circuit and to determine the resonant.

Professional Component

Contributes toward the Computer Engineering Topics Courses and the Electrical Engineering Topics Courses and Major Design experience.

Design Content Description

Three of the six laboratory experiments of this course are devoted to elementary design of linear circuits. In particular, time is devoted to (a) the transient voltage response of RC, RL and RLC circuits, (b) the sinusoidal steady-state response of RC, RL and RLC circuits, and (c) the frequency response of series RLC resonance networks, and the impacts on the frequency response by varying capacitance and resistance.
