Introductory Circuits for Electrical and Computer Engineering: A Review

Introductory Circuits for Electrical and Computer Engineering: A Review

Introductory Circuits for Electrical and Computer Engineering is a textbook written by James W. Nilsson and Susan A. Riedel, published by Prentice Hall in 2002. It is intended for undergraduate students who are interested in learning the basic concepts and techniques of circuit analysis and design. The book covers topics such as circuit variables and elements, resistive circuits, operational amplifiers, capacitors and inductors, first- and second-order circuits, sinusoidal steady-state analysis, AC power, frequency response, magnetically coupled circuits, Laplace transform, and two-port networks.

The book is based on three themes: (1) it builds an understanding of concepts based on information the reader has previously learned; (2) it helps stress the relationship between conceptual understanding and problem-solving approaches; (3) it provides numerous examples and problems that use realistic values and situations to give users a strong foundation of engineering practice[^1^]. The book also includes a PSpice Supplement which contains problems to teach readers how to construct PSpice source files; and this PSpice Version 9.2 can be used to solve many of the exercises and problems found in the book[^1^].

The book has received positive reviews from readers who praised its clear explanations, practical applications, and pedagogical features. Some readers also appreciated the inclusion of PSpice simulations and MATLAB exercises. However, some readers also pointed out some drawbacks of the book, such as its lack of depth in some topics, its occasional errors and typos, and its high price. Overall, the book is a useful resource for students who want to learn the fundamentals of circuits for electrical and computer engineering.

The book can be accessed online through various platforms, such as Google Books[^1^], Ebook Central[^2^], IEEE Xplore[^3^], and IET Digital Library. Some of these platforms may require a subscription or a login to access the full content of the book. Alternatively, the book can be purchased from online or offline retailers, such as Amazon or Barnes & Noble.One of the distinctive features of the book is its use of PSpice, a software tool that allows users to simulate and analyze circuits. PSpice can help users to verify their calculations, visualize circuit behavior, and explore different scenarios. The book provides a brief introduction to PSpice in Appendix A, and then integrates PSpice problems throughout the chapters. The PSpice Supplement at the end of the book contains more detailed instructions and examples on how to use PSpice for various types of circuits. The book also provides a CD-ROM that contains PSpice Version 9.2 and a set of circuit files that correspond to the examples and problems in the book.

Another feature of the book is its incorporation of MATLAB, a software tool that can perform numerical computations and graphical representations. MATLAB can be useful for solving complex equations, plotting frequency responses, and performing Laplace transforms. The book includes some MATLAB exercises in selected chapters, and provides a brief introduction to MATLAB in Appendix B. The book also provides a CD-ROM that contains MATLAB Student Version 6.0 and a set of M-files that correspond to the examples and problems in the book.

The book is organized into 12 chapters, each of which contains an introduction, a summary, a list of key terms, a set of review questions, a set of drill exercises, and a set of problems. The chapters are designed to follow a logical sequence, but they can also be taught in different orders depending on the instructor's preference. The book also provides some online resources for instructors and students, such as lecture slides, solutions manual, test bank, and interactive quizzes. 0efd9a6b88
