5.1. Methodological overview

The learning process designed for this course is as follows

The lerarning process will be developed in three levels: lectures, problem solving classess and laboratory sessions, including student participation in a growing level. Lectures will be used to teach Circuit Theory funamentals providing a high number of practical examples. Students will be assigned with personal work to be completed and corrected in the problem solving classes. Finally, reduced groups will assist to the lab sessions where the students will have the possiblility of appling acquired knowledge.

5.2. Learning tasks

The course program, offered for helping the student to fulfill the foreseen results, includes the next activities...

Lectures  (30 in-class hours).

Fundamental concepts of Circuit Theory will be presented to the students. They will be completed and explained with real examples. Student participation will be favoured with questions and short discussions.


Problem solving classes (15 in-class hours).

Problems will be assigned to the students for their solution. They will be aligned with the theoretical contents of the course. Student homework previous to in-class solving all the problemes will be favoured. 


Laboratory sessions (15 lab hours).

The student will desing, simulate, mount and verify how the proposed circuits work in the lab. A guide will be provided for that, with a previous part consisting in some thoretical calculations that should be done as homework.


Other activities

Some other activities with a mix of in-class and homework could be assigned to the student. 


Evaluation (3 in-class hours.

The evaluation is used not only for grading the students but also to provide them with some feedback of their progress in the course.


Tutorial sessions.  

The students will meet with their teacher to have direct atention, detect learning problems, guiding, problems and homework supervission ...

Atención directa al estudiante, identificación de problemas de aprendizaje, orientación en la asignatura, atención a ejercicios y trabajos…


Homework (18 homework hours).

Problems, exercises and practical cases will be presented to the students periodically for they solution. These could be downloaded from the course web page ( Lab sessions preparation and estraordinary activities are also included in this category.icionales.


Individual study (70 hours). 

Students continuous work will be favoured with a homgeneous distribution of the learning activities during the semester.

5.3. Syllabus

The course program is divided in four sections


     - Sinusoidal steady-state power calculations

     - Three-phase circuits

     - Two port circuits

     - Transients

5.4. Course planning and calendar

In clas sessions schedule

Calendario de sesiones presenciales y presentación de trabajos

Lectures, problem solving sessions and laboratory sessions are schedulled following the timetable fixed by the faculty and published prior to the course begining (

Each teacher will inform about his or her tutory timetable

Other activities will be planified taking into account the students number and they will be published in advance. They will be publised in the course webpage
