Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this course, students will have acquired a broader knowledge of differential and integral calculus and the skills necessary to handle problems in these areas. Students will learn to use Taylor series for a variety of qualitative approximations relevant to a range of problems in electrical engineering. They will also be introduced to the concept of Fourier series and will acquire the necessary techniques to use them to describe periodic processes. After learning about different types of solutions to second-order differential equations and having acquired the skills needed to solve such equations, students will be able to analyse the basic temporal behaviour of elementary and complex systems arising in different areas of electrical engineering.
