The most important topics in network theory/ electrical circuits are DC and AC steady states, this is where 80% of the problems come from and is the best area to score. Here are the few questions of the examination’s taste, hope you like them.
Circuit theory uses:
This is an important subject for electrical engineers for reduction of bigger circuits and analyse. It is the base necessity for any machine/circuit/gadget to design.
“Network theory is the study of graphs as a representation of either symmetric relations or asymmetric relations between discrete objects. In computer science and network science, network theory is a part of graph theory: a network can be defined as a graph in which nodes and/or edges have attributes (e.g. names).
Network theory has applications in many disciplines including statistical physics, particle physics, computer science, electrical engineering, biology, economics, finance, operations research, climatology, ecology and sociology. Applications of network theory include logistical networks, the World Wide Web, Internet, gene regulatory networks, metabolic networks, social networks, epistemological networks, etc. see List of network theory topics for more examples.
Euler’s solution of the Seven Bridges of Königsberg problem is considered to be the first true proof in the theory of networks.
Network problems that involve finding an optimal way of doing something are studied under the name combinatorial optimization. Examples include network flow, shortest path problem, transport problem, transshipment problem, location problem, matching problem, assignment problem, packing problem, routing problem, critical path analysis and PERT (Program Evaluation & Review Technique). In order to break a NP-hard task of network optimization down into subtasks the network is decomposed into relatively independent subnets.” – WIKIPEDIA (SOURCES)
