Linear Circuits 1: DC Analysis

Open Online

Course Description

This course explains how to analyze circuits that have direct current (DC) current or voltage sources. A DC source is one that is constant. Circuits with resistors, capacitors, and inductors are covered, both analytically and experimentally. Some practical applications in sensors are demonstrated.

How You Will Benefit

  • Understand the physical meaning of current, voltage, and power and their relationships to each other
  • Understand the basic principles underlying circuit analysis methods
  • Recognize real circuit component and how they are used to build real circuits
  • Identify variable resistors and how they can be used as sensors
  • Understand the physical properties of capacitors and inductors



  • Background in calculus and physics
