Riedel Electric Circuits 7 ed Prentice Hall 2005 Description Electrical circuits play a central role in modern technology Circuits can be found in applications as mundane as house wiring and as esoteric as the cellular telephone ES 203 Electrical Systems parallels the engineering science themes introduced in ES 201 Conservation anal Accounting Principles but focuses on the principles of electric circuit analysis In electrical circuits energy storage is primarily in the form of electrical and magnetic energy and energy conversion is primarily from electrical energy to mechanical energy or heat Solution techniques will draw on Kirchhoff39s celebrated laws and the lumped models of circuit elements ES 203 Electrical Systems plays a dual role in the curriculum It complements the Mechanical Systems and Thermal amp Fluial Systems courses in providing a balanced introduction to engineering systems It also serves as the introductory course in electric circuits for electrical computer optical biomedical and mechanical engineering and engineering physics majors Followon courses continue in several directions Electrical and mechanical engineering students will go on to take ES 205 Engineering Systems in which the uni ed conservation and accounting techniques will be combined with specialized techniques to solve multidisciplinary system problems Students majoring in electrical computer optical or biomedical engineering will take ECE 200 Circuits anal Systems where they will continue the formal study of electric circuits Students majoring in mechanical engineering will continue their study of circuits in ECE 207 Elements of Electrical Engineering I Page 1 of8 ES 203 Electrical Systems Fall 200607 Engaging the Material Mastering any new subject requires a continuous effort to make sense of new ideas and concepts and to relate them to what you already know Learning to identify formulate and solve technical problems requires diligent practice in applying a logical problemsolving methodology Learning to solve reallife engineering problems also requires a willingness to deal with ambiguity and uncertainty You will achieve none of the objectives of this course by passively sitting in the classroom and waiting to be entertained by the instructor Throughout this course it will be your responsibility to make learning an active process Several suggestions of ways in which you can actively engage the course material are Come to class ready to participate and learn Take notes in class You cannot possibly write down everything your instructor and classmates say so taking notes will encourage you to actively listen to identify what is important Edit your notes shortly after class to ll in gaps and formulate questions Ask questions Do not hesitate to seek out your instructor for help You will never reveal your ignorance by asking questions but you sure can reveal ignorance on the exams if you don t ask questions Read the text Take notes on what you read Verify derivations Work the examples Try working the textbook examples without looking at the solutions Ask questions when you don t understand something D0 ALL the homework You cannot learn to play the violin by attending concerts You cannot learn to solve engineering problems by watching your instructor solve them Search out the underlying principle Identify the central concept Avoid the what39s the formula for that approach to problem solving Participate Explaining your solution method to a classmate can be an excellent way of clarifying your own thinking about a problem Ask questions Examinations Dates Tuesday September 26 Tuesday October 24 Midterm Examination 1 Midterm Examination 11 Lab Practical Test Ninth Week Lab Session Final Exam Finals Week M There will normally be no make up exams Examinations of one sort or another will make up 60 of your grade and warrant careful preparation Examination questions will be based on the lecture material the textbook the homework and the laboratory work The two midterm exams will be conducted in the evening and will each be of fifty minutes duration Midterm and final examinations will be closedbook and closednotes You will not be permitted a formula sheet Use of a non QWERTY calculator will be permitted Laptop computers will not be allowed in Page 2 of8 ES 203 Electrical Systems Fall 200607 the examination room during examinations even for entertainment purposes An examination that is missed for an excused reason will be waived and your grade on the Final Exam will be used to provide the missing grade Excused absence from an examination normally requires advance approval or formal documentation of an emergency An examination that is missed for an unexcused reason will be given a grade of zero Grading Grades will be based on examinations homework laboratory work and class participation The relative weights are shown below Midterm Exam 1 15 Midterm Exam II 15 Final Exam 30 Homework 15 Lab 15 Lab Practical Test 10 Independent of point totals satisfactory completion each of the ten lab projects is required in order to receive a passing grade in the course This applies to each student individually you cannot send your lab partner to complete a lab for you Independent of point totals you must earn a grade of at least 60 on the Final Exam in order to receive a passing grade in the course A i5 adjustment may be made to take into account attendance class participation enthusiasm overall effort etc Such adjustments are at the discretion of the E8203 faculty as a whole This course is not graded on a curve Everyone in the class has an equal opportunity to earn an A Grades will be assigned at the end ofthe quarter based on averages as follows 90 and upA 86 to 89 B 80 to 85 76 to 79 C 70 to 75 60 to 69 Below 60F Attendance Regardless of whether formal attendance is taken attendance at each class is expected A portion of the i5 discretionary points may be related to attendance Experience has shown that regular attendance improves learning and consequently improves test and homework performance As a rule of thumb you should consider yourself seriously behind if you miss more than four classes in a four credithour course According to our Academic Rules and Procedures A student whose m absences in a course excused or unexcused exceed two per credit is liable to fail the course Eight absences in this course are grounds for failure Missing an attendance check due to lateness may be counted as an absence Page 3 of8 ES 203 Electrical Systems Fall 200607 It is an old joke that education is one of the few products for which purchasers pay a substantial sum of money and then often try to avoid consuming Always bear in mind that each class missed costs you money since you chose not to receive the services you purchased Attendance in the laboratory is mandatory Calculators amp Computers A good scienti c calculator is an essential tool for engineering work You will need a calculator that can perform arithmetic with compleX numbers A TI83 plus or better or an HP48 or better is recommended Calculators with a QWERTY keyboard layout are not allowed on exams You are encouraged to practice doing the homework with the same calculator you will use on the exam Computers in the classroom can greatly facilitate the learning process but they can pose a significant distraction if improperly used Please do not use your laptop computer during class to do homework play games read your mail surf the web or run software packages unrelated to the classroom activity Failure to cooperate in this matter will certainly irritate your instructor and can adversely in uence your course grade Page 4 of8 ES 203 Electrical Systems Fall 200607 General Schedule Format Solutions Grading O Effort Homework Procedures The homework is intended to help you to understand the concepts presented in the course and to provide you with practice in problem solving Problem sets are due each Tuesday in class before the bell rings at the beginning of class New assignments will be distributed using ANGEL or as otherwise indicated by your instructor Be prepared to look for a new assignment each Tuesday Problem sets will be graded and returned generally by the Tuesday after they are submitted Problem sets may be reviewed in class Keep a copy if you want to have it available during class for questions review etc Late problem sets will be penalized by 20 if they are turned in after the bell rings but before the deadline set by your instructor Assignments turned in after the deadline will not be accepted except in cases of bonefide emergency Arrange with your instructor to turn in homework early if you will be away for job interviews athletic events etc The required format is described in the Sophomore Engineering Curriculum Guidelines and Standards for Writing Assignments It is your responsibility to make your methods and results clear to the grader Homework answers not solutions will be placed on Angel by noon on the Wednesday following the due date Solutions may be viewed not copied in your instructor s office Problem sets will be graded on the basis of a fixed number of points per problem This way you earn more credit for longer problem sets No credit will be given for answers to problems unless the solution methods are clear Homework plays a particularly important role in this course as it provides you an opportunity to check your understanding of the material presented and to improve your skills in applying it solve problems A subject with a signi cant mathematical component such as this one requires a great deal of practice if the theory is to become a useful tool No one becomes a skilled tennis player by only reading books about tennis and you should not expect to become a skilled problem solver without solving Page 5 of8 ES 203 Electrical Systems Fall 200607 some problems You will probably nd that most of the real learning takes place in the reading thinking talking and working problems that you do outside of class As a rule of thumb expect to put in two hours outside of class doing homework reading the text and studying for every credit hour Take pride in your written work It is the tangible evidence of the considerable effort you have put into creating it Make sure you do a good job conveying information to the grader Make sure your diagrams are neat and welllabeled your handwriting is legible and your thought processes are clear Don t form the habit of hiding uncertainty behind sloppiness We do not require perfection but we expect everyone to do his or her best If You Need Help Responsib 0 Please do not hesitate to see your instructor for help whenever you need it Start the problems early enough in the week to leave time for questions Homework and study help can also be obtained from the Learning Center and the tutors in the New Residence Hall ility Some of the homework problems will be drill problems intended to develop skill in using the techniques presented in class Other problems will challenge you to extend familiar concepts to new situations You are encouraged at all times to discuss course material with your classmates and to help each other to understand and assimilate the concepts presented Nevertheless a distinction is made between helping someone to understand concepts and providing someone with specific answers When you actually write out your solutions to the homework problems it is expected that you will work individually without reference to other students39 work Remember that help with these problems can also be obtained from the textbook the Learning Center the library and the course instructor When special problems are to be worked in groups this will be explicitly stated on the assignment sheets RoseHulman Institute of Technology does not tolerate plagiarism or cheating in any form The penalties for these and other forms of academic misconduct range from a lowered course grade through failure in the course up to and including suspension from the Institute quotThe Institute values its reputation for moral leadership as much as its reputation for academic excellence and expects all persons associated with it to maintain the reputation The Institute s Code of Ethics is simple and direct RoseHulman expects its students to be responsible adults and to behave at all times with honor and integrity All students are expected to abide by this Code and to aid in its enforcement by reporting violations of itquot Student Handbook Page 6 of8 ES 203 Electrical Systems Fall 200607 Laboratory Procedures Laboratory Schedule The challenging laboratory projects will be very helpful in enhancing your understanding of the engineering systems course material Ten laboratory sessions will accompany ES 203 Electrical Systems You will be scheduled to perform these lab projects one day per week depending on your section The ES 203 laboratories will be held in rooms B105 and C1 15 Lab projects will be carried out in teams of two You may choose your own lab partner but please plan on keeping the same partner for all ten of the electrical systems projects Attendance in the laboratory is mandatory Please plan to spend the entire scheduled three hours in the laboratory Each individual student is expected to complete all of the assigned lab projects satisfactorily maintain a laboratory notebook and pass the Lab Practical Exam Be on time to lab Students who are more than 10 minutes late to lab will be required to perform the lab alone even if this means using another room or time Minimum Requirements The ten electrical systems laboratory projects will be considered part of the ES 203 course You are individually required to satisfactorily complete these laboratory assignments to pass the course In addition twentyfive percent of your course grade will be based on your performance in the laboratory The laboratory grade will be determined by your timely completion of the prelab assignments your completion of the laboratory projects the quality of your laboratory work the quality of your laboratory notebook and your performance on the Laboratory Practical Exam Laboratory notebooks will be graded on presentation format clarity and on English usage as well as on technical content Laboratory Notebook Each individual student is required to keep a laboratory notebook 10quot x 778quot 80 sheets 5x5 quadruled 26251 available at the Bookstore The format for notebook entries can be found under Lab Logs in the Sophomore Engineering Curriculum Guidelines anal Standards for Writing Assignments Additional specifications are provided in the ES 203 7 Electrical Systems Laboratory Manual Keeping a permanent record of your laboratory activities is an essential part of good engineering practice Preparation for the Laboratory Sessions A prelab assignment must be completed and turned in at the beginning of the class before the lab ie due Tuesday if you have a Wednesday lab or due Thursday if you have a Friday lab Hand in a copy of the prelab and put the original in your lab notebook The pre lab must be present in your laboratory notebook to receive credit for the lab You can either do the prelab in your notebook or on separate engineering paper but in either case you must make a photocopy one to submit and the other for your notebook Only one copy need be Page 7 of8 ES 203 Electrical Systems Fall 200607 submitted for each laboratory group The solutions to the prelab will be present at the start of the lab period Laboratory Reports Laboratory notebooks will be collected at the conclusion of each laboratory period The notebook entries will be graded Both members of a lab
