The basic electrical circuit is one of the main core courses for the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering in all universities. To proceed to the higher semester, students of this department need sound knowledge of this field. Accordingly, the second edition of this book has been updated with new materials for understanding the recent developments.
The Significant features of this book are:Pspice software is used for circuit simulation.
All the texts have been revised and modified with new materials.
Example, practice and exercise problems have been re-designed.
Solution of the problems have been checked by Pspice simulation.
The node voltage method and the mesh current method have been included with ac circuits.
Network theorems have been incorporated into ac circuits.
The capacitor and inductor chapter has been split into two chapters.
The ideal transformer and its analysis have been included in the chapter on inductance.About The Author M.
