Praised for its highly accessible, real–world approach, the Sixth Edition demonstrates 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. The book offers numerous design problems and MATLAB examples, and focuses on the circuits that we encounter everyday.

New integration of interactive examples and problem solving, which helps readers understand circuit analysis concepts in an interactive way

New problems in every chapter and new examples

A CD–ROM offers exercises, interactive illustrations, and a circuit design lab that allows users to experiment with different circuits

From the Back Cover:

A remarkably accessible approach ... Numerous design problem types ... MATLAB examples ... A real–world emphasis on the circuits that we encounter everyday ... These are just a few reasons why Dorf and Svoboda’s INTRODUCTION TO ELECTRIC CIRCUITS has been so successful at helping students master electric circuits and build strong problem–solving skills. Here’s one more—Electric Circuit Study Applets!

The Electric Circuit Study Applets feature hundreds of Web–based problems organized into numerous problem sets. These Applets are available FREE at www.wiley.com/college/dorf with the registration code included in the front of this text. It’s like getting a free, online study guide! Numerous call–outs throughout the text direct you to Applets that apply to the topic being studied.

With these Applets you can:

  • Practice on countless problems: A random number generator changes the values of resistances, capacitances, and other circuit parameters, so you can challenge yourself with a seemingly endless array of problems.
  • Get immediate feedback: As you work through the problems, t he Applets instantly check your answers.
  • Examine detailed Worked Examples: Simply press the Worked Examples button and the program shows you how to solve similar problems step–by–step. The entire set of Worked Examples is also available for download as a .pdf file for your convenience.
  • Assess your understanding of key concepts: Each set of problems covers a particular set of circuit analysis topics, allowing you to track your progress.
  • Make calculations while online: Simply click on the button for the pop–up calculator.

Together the Applets and Worked Examples are the next step in providing an integrated, self–paced learning environment. They take circuit analysis study into a modern framework.

About the Author:

Richard C. Dorf, professor of electrical and computer engineering at the University of California, Davis, teaches graduate and undergraduate courses in electrical engineering in the fields of circuits and control systems. He earned a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the U.S. Naval Postgraduate School, an M.S. from the University of Colorado, and a B.S. from Clarkson University. Highly concerned with the discipline of electrical engineering and its wide value to social and economic needs, he has written and lectured internationally on the contributions and advances in electrical engineering.

James A. Svoboda is an associate professor of electrical and computer engineering at Clarkson University, where he teaches courses on topics such as circuits, electronics, and computer programming. He earned a Ph.D. in electrical engineering from the University of Wisconsin at Madison, an M.S. from the University of Colorado, and a B.S. from General Motors Institute.
