Module description
The Circuit Analysis 2 course is a follow-up of the Circuit Analysis 1 course from module 1. Five new methods for circuit analysis are presented: Sinusoidal signals and phasor domain, Power of sinusoidal signals, Bode diagrams, Fourier series, and Convolution.

In the project Power Electronics project teams of 6 students design and build a so-called solar power inverter that converts the DC power of a solar panel into AC power and feeds this into the grid. Challenges in this project are the maximum power transfer from the solar panel, conversion into AC and adaptation of the voltage and phase to the grid. The project group that builds the most efficient inverter wins a prize. The Project also includes a pre-project and a project organisation and report part.

In the Programming in C course, the student learns to program in a procedural programming language in C. The following will be discussed, among other things: fundamental programming constructions (data types, assignment, selection and repetition assignments), procedural abstraction (methods and parameters) and data abstraction (arrays, structures). Furthermore, the following topics are discussed: the use of dynamic data structures such as lists and binary trees, reading and writing files and the use of a compiler. By way of illustration, a number of algorithms will be discussed, such as prime number generation, greatest common divisor and sorting.

The calculus 2 for EE course builds on the Calculus 1 course and addresses among others integration, convergence, Taylor series and three-dimensional geometry.

Further details of these courses can be found on Osiris under their individual entries.
