Single-Course Danish 5 ECTS

Electric circuits 2

Overall Course Objectives

Understanding and application of analog signals, components and their composition in alternating current circuits as well as their usage in applications

Learning Objectives

  • Understanding of different notations and parameters of alternating currents, voltage and power
  • Apply basic Fourier series
  • Explain and apply decibel and bode plot
  • Explain basic physical principles behind passive components (resistors, inductors and capacitors)
  • Determine properties of passive circuits, such as impedances and power
  • Apply basic LaPlace transformations
  • Determine and analyse transfer functions
  • Analyse active alternating current circuitries
  • Link basic theoretical knowledge to practical applications
  • Demonstrate knowledge about technical terms also in English
  • Compare different simulation and measurement tools
  • Design solutions for realistic engineering problems

Course Content

Electric signals in alternating current circuitries in time and frequency domain, passive components in alternating current contexts, analog electrical circuits, transfer functions, and their applications (e.g. passive and active filters, amplifiers, motor drives, oscillator, power supplies)

Recommended prerequisites

31001, – knowledge of trigonometric functions,
– complex numbers, and
– ohm’s law and Kirchhoff’s rules applied to direct current circuits

Teaching Method

Videos and quizzes, chat-based communication, problem solving and lab work.
Mandatory exercises


The course is a second semester constituent of the bachelor programme Electro Technology.
E-learning: the course is ready for digital twin university & education 4.0: the theory part can be taken “self-paced” to a high extend (based on videos, quizzes and chat-based help).
The hands-on part can be organised as a camp (but either camp or as regular course – not both).
