Chapter 2. Basic Definitions and DC Circuits

This chapter's main objective is to highlight some of the commonly used definitions and fundamental concepts in electric circuits, which are supported by a set of custom-written VIs. These VIs enable students to examine various scenarios in circuits or control panels and, hence, provide an excellent tool for interactive studying. For example, a circuit can be modified easily by varying its controls on the front panel—a series resistance can be zeroed and a parallel resistance can be set to a very high value to introduce a short circuit and an open circuit, respectively. Or a dc offset can be introduced to a programmed waveform to obtain a desired average or root mean square (rms) value, which is supported ...
