 Synopsis:

The course introduces students to the basic principles and methods of analysis of electrical circuits. Defines the circuit elements and gives their elementary application. It deals with the basic fundaments of electronic systems based on analog as well as digital circuits. The course presents operational principles and methods of analysis of these circuits with respect to the use of cybernetics and control systems.
