EL 201 Switching Circuits & Digital Logic                                             2 1 1 4 5

Digital electronics course is a classic subject. Digital techniques are useful because it is easier to get an electronic device to switch into one of a number of known states than to accurately reproduce a continuous range of values. One advantage of digital circuits when compared to analog circuits is signals represented digitally can be transmitted without degradation due to noise. In a digital system, a more precise representation of a signal can be obtained by using more binary digits to represent it. Computer controlled digital systems can be controlled by software, allowing new functions to be added without changing hardware. The course deals with the basic and fundamental concept of digital electronics, which will help the students to design digital circuits. The course includes the topics:

AC Machines: Transformer: Working principle, Ideal Transformer, Equivalent Circuit, Transformer tests, Voltage regulation, Efficiency. Three Phase Induction Motor: working Principle, Single Phase induction motor, Principle of Operation, Application, Stepper motor.
