Circuits and systems II

EE-205

Lecturer(s) :

Gastpar Michael Christoph

Language:

English

Summary

This class teaches the theory of linear time-invariant (LTI) systems. These systems serve both as models of physical reality (such as the wireless channel) and as engineered systems (such as electrical circuits, filters and control strategies).

Content

The design of advanced systems (such as WiFi, cell phones, drones, airplanes) requires a thorough theoretical underpinning. This class teaches one of the most powerful and important pillars: The theory of linear time-invariant (LTI) systems. These systems serve both as models of physical reality (such as the wireless channel) and as engineered systems (such as filters and control strategies).

The class will cover the following topics:

 

  1. Systems: Definitions (1 week)
  2. LTI Systems (3 weeks)
  3. The Frequency Response of stable LTI Systems (1 week)
  4. Fourier Techniques for stable LTI Systems (3 weeks); with applications to Communication Systems and Signal Processing
  5. Laplace and Z-Transform Techniques for LTI Systems (5 weeks); with applications to Control Systems

 

Keywords

Systems, Circuits, Signals, Frequency Response, Transfer Function, Fourier Transform, Laplace Transform, Z Transform, Stability, Causality, Sampling
