Prerequisites:

In order to study profitably the subject, the student must know the contents of Linear Algebra, Calculus 1, Calculus 2, General Physics 1, and General Physics 2.
The program regulation also states that the examinations of any secondyear teaching, including Electrical Engineering, can be given only if firstyear teachings for at least 30 have been passed, including Calculus 1. 
Target skills and knowledge:

Starting from the knowledge acquired in previous mathematics and physics classes, the course aims at teaching the basic properties of electrical networks. The main analysis methods and fundamental theorems of the electric network in steady state, harmonic and variable aperiodic conditions will be taught as well.
At the end of the course, this knowledge will allow the student to recognize where and when electrical networks are used. He will be able to identify the best analysis strategies of such networks and know the fundamentals for the synthesis of elementary circuits.
He will also acquire the correct and rigorous terminology needed for Electrical Enginnering. 
Examination methods:

Midterm test consisting of 10 multipleanswer quizzes on theoretical subjects.
Written and oral final examination. The written part consists of 10 multipleanswer quizzes on theoretical subjects and in the analysis of two electrical networks. The oral examination consists of a theoretical question. 
Assessment criteria:

The multipleanswer quizzes allow the student to acquire a score from 0 to 10. He passes with a score equal to or greater than 6.
The two exercises allow the student to acquire a score from 0 to 14. He passes with a score equal to or greater than 8.
The oral question allow the student to acquire a score from 0 to 8. He passes with a score equal to or greater than 4.
In order to pass the whole examination the student must pass each of the three parts and the final score (in thirties) is the sum of the three partial scores. 
Course unit contents:

1) Introduction to the and electrical networks and their fundamental concepts. Channeling of electric current: flow tubes, ports and electric power and multiports.
2) fundamentals element types. Adynamic oneport: voltage and current sources, resistors, diodes.
3) Adynamic twoports and their characterization, controlled sources, ideal transformer, ideal gyrator.
4) Dynamic elements: capacitors, inductors, and mutual inductors.
5) Network topology: series and parallel, graphs, topological matrices, Kirchhoff's laws. systems of topological equations. Tellegen's theorem.
6) Principles of analysis and general theorems of electrical networks in quasistationary condition.
7) resistor networks, series and parallel, voltage and current dividers.
8) Affine oneports, their duality and equivalence.
9) Direct currrent linear networks. Analysis problem. Reduced methods: mesh current method, node voltage method, superposition method. Linear network theorems: reciprocity theorem, Thevenin's theorem, Norton's theorem, maximum power transfer theorem.
10) Alternating current networks. Sinusoidal voltages and currents, phasors, impedance, admittance, series and parallel, and their synthesis. Frequency response and resonance. Symbolic networks, properties, theorems and methods of analysis.
11) Threephase networks. Topologies of generators and impedances in three and fourwire symmetrical and balanced networks. Threephase power, power factor correction.
12) Discontinuity and pulses. Impulsive currents in capacitors and impulse voltages in inductors, parallelization and serialization of capacitors and inductors
13) Generally varying dynamic netwoks. Evolution of the fundamental circuits of the first and second order circuits: RC circuit, LR circuit, and LC oscillator. Differential equation, zero input response and zero state response, particular solution and homogeneous solution. Generalized frequencies, time constants, integration constants. Reduced use of Laplace transform in dynamic networks analysis. Transfer functions.
14) Classroom exrecises: analysis of circuits in direct current, alternating current, and dynamic circuits. Synthesis of elementary networks. 
Planned learning activities and teaching methods:

classroom lessons at the blackboard, videoprojections of slides, practical demonstrations with electrical and electronic instrumentation, and classroom exercises on the analyses and synthesis of electrical networks. 
Additional notes about suggested reading:

In addition to the textbooks listed below, the following material is downloadable from the teacher's website (http://www.dii.unipd.it/en/guarnieri):
1) lesson syntheses (with indication of the pertinent chapters of the textbook)
2) informative material for the examination (detailed program, rules for written and oral tests, questions of the oral test)
3) texts of the written tests proposed in the previous sessions
