With successful completion of the course students will be able to: make a general analysis of electric circuits with a complex topological structure; to analyze the circuits by applying the Laplace transform; to analyze unbalanced three-phase circuits and short circuits using symmetrical components; to analyze circuits with distributed parameters in a sinusoidal steady-state mode. 11.    Course Syllabus: Basic definitions and laws: circuits elements, Kirchhoff’s laws, power classifications (overview). Graphs, matrices and circuit theory. General analysis of electric circuits: nodal equations and mesh equations. Circuit analysis with Laplace transform. Transfer function: definition, relation with impulse response.  Theorems of electrical circuits: Thevenin’s theorem, Norton’s theorem, superposition theorem. Electric networks: N-port networks: the y parameters, the z parameters Three-phase circuits: unbalanced three-phase circuits, symmetrical components, short circuit calculation using symmetrical components. Transmission lines: wave equations, sinusoidal steady-state analysis, reflection, standing waves, transmission line as two-port network. 12.    Learning methods:  Blended teaching method: lecturing, tutorials supported by presentations and visualization of concepts, assignments, all supported by learning management system 13.    Total number of course hours 3 + 2 + 0 + 0 14.    Distribution of course hours 180 15.    Forms of teaching 15.1.

The requirement for passing the course through partial exams is minimum 50% of the total number of points from all activities and additionally minimum 50% of the total number of points from the partial exams. In the exam sessions, a whole exam is taken (with duration of 120 minutes). The requirement for passing the course through an exam is minimum 50% of the total number of points from all activities (whole exam, tests and homeworks) and additionally minimum 50% of the total number of points from the exam. The use of books, scripts, or notes of any kind during the exam, as well as a mobile phone, tablet or any other electronic device is not allowed. 21.    Language Macedonian and English 22.    Method of monitoring of teaching quality Internal evaluation and surveys.
