What’s Covered in Advanced Circuit Theory
What are Network Theorems:
Electric circuit theorems are always beneficial to help find voltage and currents in multiloop circuits. These theorems use fundamental rules or formulas and basic equations of mathematics to analyze basic components of electrical or electronics parameters such as voltages, currents, resistance, and so on
What is Kirchhoff’s Circuit Laws :
Kirchhoff’s circuit laws are two equalities that deal with the current and potential difference (commonly known as voltage) in the lumped element model of electrical circuits. They were first described in 1845 by German physicist Gustav Kirchhoff.
What is Super Position:
The superposition theorem states that a circuit with multiple voltage and current sources is equal to the sum of simplified circuits using just one of the sources. A circuit composed of two voltage sources, for example, will be equal to the sum of two circuits, each one using one of the sources and having the other removed.
What is Thevenin to Norton Conversions
Since Thevenin’s and Norton’s Theorems are two equally valid methods of reducing a complex network down to something simpler to analyze, there must be some way to convert a Thevenin equivalent circuit to a Norton equivalent circuit, and vice versa (just what you were dying to know, right?.

Operational Amplifier Section
Historical Back Ground:
The operational Amplifier was developed for use in Analog Computers in the 1940’s.Early Operational Amplifiers used Vacuum Tubes were large in size and consumed large amount’s of Power.
In 1967 FairChild Semiconductor introduced the first Integrated circuit Op=Amp. Todays Operational Amplifiers are far super then there Vacuum tube predserors. They are much smaller consume much less power and can be bought for a few dollars.
Introduction
The Operational Amplifier “(or OpAmp) is a high Performance Linear Amplifier with an amazing variety of uses. The OpAmp has two inputs, () inverting and (+) and noninverting and one output. The polarity of a signal applied to the output. A Signal applied to the noninverting input retains it’s polarity at the Output.
The gain of an Opamp is determined by a feedback resistor that feeds some of the amplified signal from the output to the inverting. This reduces the amplitude of the output signal, hence the gain. The smaller the resistor, the lower the gain.
