2019 - 2020 Catalog Description:  Experiments on direct, transient, and single phase alternating current circuits. Use of basic electrical instruments, development of laboratory techniques, and verification of basic circuit laws and principles. (3 lab hours)

Prerequisites:  ECE 90 or concurrently; PHYS 4BL.

Course Objectives:  
The Principles of Electrical Circuits Laboratory course is based upon experiments that are designed to provide undergraduate students with an experimental framework by which they can gain experience using standard electrical measuring equipment to observe and verify principles learned in the lecture portion of this course (ECE 90), and to gain experience in the presentation and writing of collected laboratory data into semi-formal technical reports. Students will also develop an appreciation for measurement accuracy and error analysis when presenting their results.

Course Content: This course consists of 15 experiments that will be conducted once a week, in addition to a final exam at the end of the semester. The experiments have been developed to teach you how to take an initial problem statement and formulate an experiment based upon theory and hardware development; to build, test, and debug your experiment; and finally, to demonstrate experimental results to your professor. Each lab will be available for download at the Instructor's web site.

Just as all Engineers in the work force continually utilize small teams to complete a project over an extended period of time, all of your work within this course will be based upon working together in teams of two to three (maximum) students as you perform your experiments. Therefore, each exercise is to be performed, demonstrated, and documented by each group member both individually and collectively.
