Circuit Analysis

Professional Internship




  1. [Díodes]
    1. [Analysis of Diode circuits: rectifiers, limiters, Voltage regulator, etc.]
  2. [Transistors]
    1. [Analysis of Transistor Circuits: amplifiers, switching circuits, etc]
  3. [MOSFETs]
    1. [ Analysis of MOSFETcircuits: switching circuits, etc]
  4. [Operational Amplifiers]
    1.  [Analysis of Operational Amplifiers: Inverting and non-inverting Amplifier, summing amplifier, differential amplifier]
  5. [ Electrical Systems for Manned and Unmanned Aircrafts]
    1. [Electric Propulsion, Electromechanical Actuators, Energy storage systems,Energy Distribution and Auto Pilots] 


The syllabus of this Curricular Unit encompasses the basic knowledge for circuit analysis with diodes, Transistors, Mosfets and Operational Amplifiers. Additionally the students will be familiar with eletrical Systems for Manned and Unmanned Aircrafts such as Electric Propulsion, Actuators, Energy Storage, Energy Distribution and Auto Pilots.

Teaching methodologies and assessment

The structure of the classes will be divided in theoretical classes, using the expositive and interactive method or through the use of slides, and practical classes for problem solving exercises. The students will be solving exercices individually with all the support from the Professor. The interaction between students with the Professor becomes very pertinent in this classes since it helps the students for a more participating methodology instead of the standard method. The evaluation method is performed during six months, by continuous evaluation, according to the Regulation of evaluation of Knowledge of the ULP. The method includes: Group work (20%) and written tests (80%).
