Summary

Stay focused on the fundamentals with Paull Offering a new, focused approach to circuit analysis, Clayton Paul's Paul's Fundamentals of Electric Circuit Analysis helps readers master essential circuit analysis skills in a one-semester course. Paul covers all the important topics, while minimizing unnecessary detail, so that students can develop a lasting set of valuable analysis skills. Focused on basic skills . The text emphasizes the three most important electric circuit analysis skills: * Resistive circuit analysis, including controlled sources and op amps * Analysis of circuits in the sinusoidal steady state (the phasor method) * Analysis of circuits in the time domain in response to a disturbance (switching operations and the unit step and unit impulse responses) Focused on student success . Fundamentals of Electric Circuit Analysis provides the learning tools readers need to succeed in circuit analysis. Throughout the text, you'll find: * Example Problems that illustrate each new technique or concept * Exercise Problems that allow readers to apply what they've learned * Real-world application examples * Coverage of circuit analysis tools, such as Spice (PSpice) and Matlab Focused on quality . Maintaining a firm commitment to quality, the author has meticulously reviewed all text material, problems, and solutions. The result is a text that offers accurate content, not distracting errors.

Author Biography

About the Author Clayton R. Paul is Emeritus Professor of Electrical Engineering at the University of Kentucky, and is currently the Sam Nunn Eminent Professor of Aerospace Systems Engineering and Professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Mercer University in Macon, Georgia.
