The second edition presents the readers with more solved problems, new methodologies to solve conventional problems and new chapters. The aim in writing this book is to bridge the gap between specialist textbooks (which are pitched at a level too academic for an average student) and the most prosaic "handbooks", which are full of useful detail but provide little opportunity for the development of any real insight or understanding.

    DC Circuit Analysis Price 9.00  |  9 Rewards Points

    Network analysis is any structured technique used to mathematically analyze a circuit. Often the engineer encounters circuits containing multiple sources or power or component configurations which challenge simplification by series/parallel analysis techniques. In such cases, they are forced to use other means. This chapter presents a few techniques useful in analyzing such complex circuits.
  • Chapter 3

    AC Circuits Concepts Price 9.00  |  9 Rewards Points
