Introduction

Electrical technology has two large subject areas: power systems and signals. Power Systems concerns the generation and transmission of electrical energy. Electricity is a convenient way of moving and distributing energy at a central location (the power plant) to the end user, where it powers your lights, refrigerator and computer. Signals concerns the use of electricity to convey information. For example, the video image of a television display and the sounds of a music player are transmitted and processed in electrical form. The information in the video image and sound track are represented by small-scale voltages and currents1 . This representation of the signal can be analog or digital. In analog form2 the magnitude of some voltage or current represents the original signal. For example, the magnitude of a voltage varies in the same fashion as a sound wave: the voltage is said to be an analog representation of the sound wave. Signals almost always begin in analog format. In many cases, the signal is subsequently converted to digital format, in which the original signal is represented by a stream of numbers. In some cases, it is subsequently reconverted back to analog form.
