Introduction to Electrical Engineering is ideal for courses that introduce non-electrical engineering majors to the language and principles of electrical engineering. This text discusses the underlying concepts and methods behind various electrical engineering applications--from consumer gadgets and biomedical electronics to sophisticated instrumentation systems, computers and electric machinery. Sarma highlights basic physical concepts while also emphasizing mathematical techniques, motivating students to learn the material in a logical sequence beginning with physical principles and extending to processes, modeling, using analytical techniques, and finally, designing. * Incorporates practical and open-ended case studies at the end of each chapter* Includes more than 1,000 end-of-chapter problems, a wealth of examples, and more than 1,500 illustrations* Offers comprehensive chapters on signal processing, control systems, and communication systems* Provides integrated coverage of MATLAB and SPICE * Adopts a modern focus on design and teamwork * Contains complete solutions to 20% of the end-of-chapter problems on the enclosed CD* Includes helpful appendixes on the FE examination; mathematical relations; solution of simultaneous equations; complex numbers; Fourier series; Laplace transforms; and more Contents:Each chapter ends with a Problems sectionList of Case Studies and Computer-Aided AnalysisPrefaceOverviewPart 1: Electrical Circuits1.
