This full-color guide provides a clear introduction to DC/AC circuits with numerous exercises and examples, an abundance of illustrations, photographs, tables and charts, and a strong emphasis on troubleshooting. Uses a conventional-flow approach throughout, and incorporates mathematical concepts only when needed to understand the discussion. Covers everything from components, quantities and units to voltage, current and resistance; series circuits; magnetism and electromagnetism; phasors and complex numbers; capacitors; inductors; RC and RL circuits; circuit theorems, and more. Considers reactive circuits by circuit type as well as by component type. Integrates many TECH Tips (Technology Theory Into Practice) and PSpice Computer Analysis sections that apply theory learned to a practical activity using realistic circuit board and instrument graphics. Weaves worked examples and related exercises throughout to clarify basic concepts and illustrate procedures and troubleshooting techniques. Contains over 1,300 full-color illustrations, and over 750 problem sets and 850 self-test and review questions. For electronic technology professionals or anyone who wants a fundamental understanding of the principles of electric circuits.

This book provides an exceptionally clear introduction to DC/AC circuits supported by superior exercises, examples, and illustrations and an emphasis on troubleshooting and applications. The Fifth Edition features stronger coverage of key areas (including new PSpice sections in all chapters), new exercises throughout the text, and an improved pedagogical framework. It includes specially designed Technology Theory Into Practice (TECH Tip) sections which link principles to real world practices as well as numerous troubleshooting sections. Plus, Principles of Electric Circuits, Fifth Edition features an exciting new full color format which uses color to enhance the instructional value of photographs, illustrations, tables, charts, and graphs. Throughout the text's coverage, the use of mathematics is limited to only those concepts that are needed for understanding. Floyd's acclaimed troubleshooting emphasis, as always, provides students with the problem solving experience they need to step out of the classroom and into a job!Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission.

This seventh edition of Principles of Electric Circuits: Conventional Current Version provides a complete and straightforward coverage of the basics of electrical components and circuits, with emphasis on analysis, applications, and troubleshooting. Many improvements have been made over the previous edition, but the coverage and organization remain the same. A new text design and layout enhance the text's appearance and usability.
New Features and Improvements
Troubleshooter Quiz. A multiple-choice quiz in the chapter end matter tests the student's grasp of what happens in a circuit as a result of certain changes or faults. The student must determine whether a specified quantity or parameter increases, decreases, or remains the same as a result of the introduction of a fault or a change in another circuit parameter. Answers are at the end of the chapter.
Engineering Notation. Chapter 1 includes an expanded coverage of engineering notation and the use of the calculator in scientific and engineering notation.
Electrical Safety. The topic of electrical safety is introduced in Chapter 2. It is supplemented by a feature called "Safety Note" located at appropriate points throughout the text and identified by a special logo.
Troubleshooting. An improved coverage of troubleshooting begins in Section 3-6 with an introduction. A systematic method called APM (analysis, planning, and measurement) is introduced and used in many of the troubleshooting sections and examples. Troubleshooting features are identified by a new logo.
Circuit Simulations. In addition to the EWB circuit simulations for Troubleshooting and Analysis problems that are available on the CD-ROM accompanying the textbook, Multisim circuits have been added. To avoid any backward compatibility issues, the EWB files have been retained for those who have not yet upgraded to Multisim.
Circuit Simulation Tutorials. The EWB and PSpice tutorials continue to be available on the website. In addition, Multisim tutorials are now available online. All of the tutorials can be downloaded for student use from www.prenhall.com/floyd.
Key Terms Terms. identified as most important in each chapter are listed in the chapter opener. Within the chapter, the key terms are in color boldface and indicated with a "key" icon. Each key term is defined at the end of the chapter and in the comprehensive glossary at the end of the book.
Answer Reminders. Notes to remind students where to find the answers to the various exercises and problems appear throughout each chapter.
