9780131701793: Principles of Electric Circuits: Conventional Current Version (8th Edition)

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. It features an exciting full color format which uses color to enhance the instructional value of photographs, illustrations, tables, charts, and graphs. Throughout the book'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 learners with the problem solving experience they need for a successful career in electronics. Chapter topics cover components, quantities and units; voltage, current, and resistance; Ohm's Law; energy and power; series circuits; parallel circuits; series-parallel circuits; circuit theorems and conversions; branch, mesh, and node analysis; magnetism and electromagnetism; an introduction to alternating current and voltage; phasors and complex numbers; capacitors; inductors; transformers; RC circuits; RL circuits; RLC circuits and resonance; basic filters; circuit theorems in AC analysis; pulse response of reactive circuits; and polyphase systems in power applications. For electronics technicians, electronics teachers, and electronics hobbyists.

From the Back Cover:

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.
