New to this edition

Introductory Circuit Analysis provides the following features to facilitate learning:

  • Imperative reorganization involved:
    • The removal of chapter 26 covering the seldom-used topic of Systems Analysis.
    • The breaking up of chapter 15 into two chapters, Series and Parallel AC networks, to reinforce the importance of this subject matter and helps students understand it. Example problems and supplementary computer coverage of the topics have also been expanded.
  • Calculator Coverage includes detailed steps throughout the text that guide students in performing difficult equations on Texas Instrument’s TI-89 graphing calculator.
  • Over 100 pieces of critical new field developments have been inserted into the text, including:
    • The improved efficiency level of solar panels.
    • The growing use of fuel cells in applications at home, in cars, and in a variety of portable systems.
    • The introduction of smart meters to the residential and industrial world.
    • The use of lumens to define lighting needs.
    • The use of LEDs over fluorescent CFLs and incandescent lamps.
    • The growing popularity of inverters and converters in many aspects of our everyday lives, as well as in a variety of charts, graphs, and tables.
    • Expanded coverage of shorts and open circuits.
    • A total revision of derivatives and their impact on specific quantities.
    • Recent applications of superconductors, and many more.
  • Problem Sections at the end of each chapter have been updated with new information to reinforce understanding of major concepts.
    • Reorganization has put problems in order from least to most difficult, with the most difficult questions indicated by an asterisk.
    • Lengthy problems have been broken up into different sections to encourage a step-by-step problem-solving approach.
  • The Laboratory Manual has been extensively updated to provide additional examples of experiments that apply the subject matter.
  • Approximately 300 beautiful new photos and illustrations color the text.
  • Computer Software supplements such as Cadance’s OrCAD version 16.6 (PSpice) and Multisim have been updated and include over 90 clear printouts that cover and guide the use of each program.
  • Computer Sections have been expanded to verify experimental results and to demonstrate how the computer can be used as an additional piece of laboratory equipment.
