Electrical Circuit Analysis Using the TI-85 or TI-86 / Edition 1by Richard Aston
Pub. Date: 06/03/1999
Publisher: Prentice Hall
This innovative book uses the hand-held programmable graphing calculator as both a calculating tool and a pedagogical tool to teach readers how to do classical circuit analysis and how to make mathematical models of electrical networks that can be programmed on the TI-85 or 86. Introduces a generic method that is compatible with any mathematical computer program. Emphasizes using the computer (specifically the programmable, hand-held graphing calculator TI-85 or 86) as an analysis tool. Tasks include solving for all currents or voltages in any AC or DC circuit of up to 20 nodes or loops; exploring frequency response curves; and performing sensitivity studies on the effects of individual resistor, capacitor, or inductor elements. Includes exercises that require complete computer programs for a variety of common circuits such as bridge circuits, delta-wye circuits, balanced and unbalanced three-phase networks, transistor equivalent circuits, transformer circuits, ladder networks, passive and active filters, differential amplifiers, and instrumentation amplifiers. Other topics include instantaneous power, harmonic representation of square waves, bandwidth filters, and more. For those with an interest in DC/AC Circuits.

When I first picked up this book, there was a little skeptic that sat on my shoulder and said, 'Now WHY do you need this book?' Well, I am glad that I have purchased the book, and for several reasons. For one, it will help me give some of my students the ability to make some of the number crunching less time consuming. This is due to the numerous steps and images that are used to incorporate the analysis side of the TI-85/86. The steps are laid out very distinctly, and are easy for any student who is in the course to walk through this book in addition to their regular text in order to 'drive the concept home'. This book is also informative in the sense that most students who go onto the more advanced classes of Circuit Analysis will be able to continually refer to this book. About the only problem I see with this book is that it does not fully take into effect the power that the basic language of the TI-85/86 actually has. By this I am talking about the over abuse of the STO key. It would be more efficient to use in-line storage by including several 'INPUT ' strings in order to make the programs run smoother.
