The central theme of Introduction to Electric Circuits is the concept that electric circuits are a part of the basic fabric of modern technology. Given this theme, this book endeavors to show how the analysis and design of electric circuits are inseparably intertwined with the ability of the engineer to design complex electronic, communication, computer and control systems as well as consumer products.This book is designed for a one-to three-term course in electric circuits or linear circuit analysis, and is structured for maximum flexibility.

For an introductory undergraduate course in control systems for engineering students. Written to be equally useful for all engineering disciplines, this text is organized around the concept of control systems theory as it has been developed in the frequency and time domains. It provides coverage of classical control, employing root locus design, frequency and response design using Bode and Nyquist plots. It also covers modern control methods based on state variable models including pole placement design techniques with full-state feedback controllers and full-state observers. Many examples throughout give students ample opportunity to apply the theory to the design and analysis of control systems. Incorporates computer-aided design and analysis using Matlab and LabVIEW MathScript.

Build valuable design and analysis skills with the leader in circuits education A remarkably accessible approach, numerous design problems, MATLAB examples, and a real-world focus on the circuits that we encounter everyday---there are just a few reasons why Dorf and Svoboda's INTRODUCTION TO ELECTRIC CIRCUITS has been so successful at helping students master circuit analysis and design. In their Fifth Edition, the authors have revised and enhanced their student-oriented text with several significant new changes, including: Coverage of Fourier transforms Revised set of problems and exercises, including more accessible design problems and examples that illustrate the solution to problems on the CD-ROM packaged with this text Revised chapter summaries in a new bullet-point format with summarizing tables But most importantly, this Fifth Edition provides students with the opportunity to hone their design and analysis skills with the new Electronic Teaching Assistant (ETA) on the Student Resource CD-ROM packed in this text. Practice and experiment with the new Electronic Teaching Assistant! The ETA features a powerful set of interactive learning tools in a web-based browser. These tools includes: The Electric Circuits Workout. Develop and practice circuit analysis skills with this unique set or exercises, similar to quiz or exam problems. The Circuit Design Lab. These labs offer essential experimentation and design experience. Each lab exercise presents a circuit together with scroll bars that control the values of important circuit parameters. The Interactive Illustrations. These illustrations help the user to recognize connections between related concepts. They allow users to change key aspects of an illustration while observing the consequences.

This text is designed for an introductory undergraduate course in control systems for engineering students.There is very little demarcation between aerospace, chemical, electrical, industrial, and mechanical engineering in control system practice: therefore this text is written without any bias towards one particular discipline. Thus, this book will be equally useful for all engineering disciplines and, perhaps, will assist in illustrating the utility of control engineering as a controlled discipline.

A number of factors, from soaring fuel prices to genetically modified agricultural products, have greatly refocused worldwide attention on the interrelationship between technology and society and the necessity for sustainable engineering and business practices. "Technology, Humans, and Society" focuses on building a model for business and engineering that will lead to a sustainable world. The challenge for engineering is to develop new technologies that enable economic growth and do not deplete irreplaceable resources and destroy ecological systems. No longer solely the domain of environmentalists and ecologists, 'sustainable' or 'green' business practices and engineering designs are becoming a central part of the planning of many of the world's most influential companies, such as Hewlett-Packard, Honeywell, Dow, and Agilent. Companies are overwhelmingly not only finding that sustainable business and engineering practices are good for environment, but also improve the image of the company and quite frequently the 'bottom-line'. Dorf's 1975 publication, "Technology and Society" (ISBN: 0878350470), sold over 70,000 copies. The completely new "Technology, Humans, and Society" is created to meet the swelling demand for unified practices of both business people and technologists in the creation of a 'greener' sustainable world. It includes readable discussion of key issues of sustainable engineering and business design and practice. It covers how to plan and implement a business practice that leads to an environmental, social and economic balance that results in profitable growth.

This text and CD-ROM should motivate students toward learning the fundamental foundations of circuit theory necessary for the complete study of electrical engineering by applying the material given to the real world. A critical emphasis on design is stressed throughout and further enhanced with a design challenge problem. At the start of each chapter, the student is asked to consider a Design Challenge problem that can only be solved by applying the material presented in the chapter. The solution to each challenge concludes each chapter. Several examples of how MATLAB is used to solve problems involving electric circuits are illustrated in the text and a new appendix is included that describes how the PSpice circuit analysis tool can be used These changes are also incorporated into the fourth edition: the text provides a streamlined treatment of first order circuits; Thevenin and Norton equivalent circuits are used to reduce all first order circuits to one of two simple circuits - a series RC circuit or a parallel RL circuit making differential equations practically unnecessary; chapters on electric power have been revised to provide fuller explanations and more examples; the treatment of three phase circuits has been extended to include unbalanced as well as balanced circuits; all Design Challenge circuits are simulated on the CD with the book. Electronic Course Management materials are available to adopters.

Two new features have been added to the eighth edition to complement the book's strong integration of design and analysis. The Sequential Design Problem feature, using a disk drive as the example, highlights the main themes in each chapter and how they impact the design of a control system. A Continuous Design Problem is included at the end of each problem set to give students an opportunity to model, analyze, and design various types of controllers for a table-top machine tool as they proceed through the chapters. The textbook provides a clear exposition of the basic principles of control system design techniques using frequency- and time-domain methods as well as the state variable method.
