Electrical Circuits
3.1 Basic Concepts
• Electric charge
— 1 coulomb of negative change contains 6.241 ×10
18
electrons.
• Current
— 1 ampere is a steady ﬂow of 1 coulomb of change pass a given point in a con-
ductor in 1 second.
1(amperes) =

. (3.1)
— Time varying current
i(t) = lim
{t<0
¡(t +{t) ÷¡(t)
{t

{t
(3.2)
• Voltage
— Voltage digerence between two points is the work in joules required to move
1 coulomb of charge from one point to the other.
\ (volts) =
\(joules)
Q(coulombs)
. (3.3)
• Power
— The rate at which something either absorbs or produces energy.
— The power absorbed by an electric element is the product of the voltage and
the current.
1(Watts) =
\(joules)
t(seconds)
= \ (volts) ×1(amperes). (3.4)

— Voltage source provides a speciﬁed voltage across the two terminals and does not
depend on the current ﬂowing through the source.
— The output impedance of ideal voltage source is zero.
+ The current ﬂowing through an ideal voltage source is completely deter-
mined by the circuit connected to the source.
• Ideal current source
— Current source provides a speciﬁed current and does not depend on the voltage
across the source.
— The output impedance of ideal current source is inﬁnite.
+ The voltage across an ideal current source is completely determined by the
circuit connected to the source.
• DC signals v.s. AC signals
— Figure 3.2 shows the deﬁnitions of DC signals and AC signals.

• Two ways to deduce the system transfer function in time and Laplace domains.
— Start in time domain and then take the Laplace transform.
— Start in Laplace domain and use Inverse Laplace transform to return to time
