This course is a refresher in basic network analysis of passive RLC circuits using discreet passive (R) resistor, (L) inductor and (C) capacitor components. The complete response for each of the 4 basic circuits has transient and steady state terms.

The sum of the transient and steady state terms comprises the complete response of the circuit. Once we have the complete response of a circuit we can alter the circuit element values to our specifications and plot the results.

This course covers RC high and low-pass, and RL high and low-pass circuits (first order circuits).

We'll obtain the complete response of each circuit type, using time domain analysis techniques.

The focus is more on electrical engineering concepts and "by inspection" methods rather than on rigorous mathematical derivations but references are made to the solution methods of linear differential equations.

The intended audience is practicing electrical and electronics engineers already familiar with the math and engineering concepts for circuit analysis.
