Ce cours définit les notions de base des circuits électriques composés des trois éléments passifs (résistance, inductance et condensateur), linéaires et des sources de tension et de courant.

On traite ces circuits avec les lois élémentaires de l'électricité puis on développe une série de méthodes de combinaisons des éléments et de transformations du circuit qui mènent à leur simplification et permettent une analyse aisée des courants, tensions et puissances présents. Quelques circuits particuliers classiques sont présentés. 

Toutes ces méthodes sont premièrement développées en régime continu puis elles sont généralisées au régime alternatif, faisant intervenir le calcul complexe. L'importance du régime alternatif réside dans le fait qu'il est omniprésent au niveau de la distribution électrique domestique et industrielle.

This course is presented in French.

Learn how electronic gadgets are designed, developed, and built as embedded systems that shape the world.

This is part one of a two part sequence. Together these are hands-on, learn-by-doing courses that show you how to build solutions to real-world problems using embedded systems. In this course, we take a bottom-up approach to problem solving, building gradually from simple interfacing of switches and LEDs to complex concepts like a microcontroller-based pacemaker, digital lock, and a traffic light controller. We will present both general principles and practical tips for building circuits and programming the microcontroller in the C programming language. You will develop debugging skills using oscilloscopes, logic analyzers, and software instrumentation. Laboratory assignments are first performed in simulation, and then you will build and debug your system on the real microcontroller. At the conclusion of this part 1 you will possess the knowledge to build your own traffic light controller from the ground up.

This is the fourth time we have offered this course. Since the reviews have been overwhelmingly positive we do not plan major changes over the previous offerings of the course. We did however break the large class into two smaller classes. There are eight labs in part 1 and six labs in part 2. Students can pick and choose a subset of labs to achieve certification. The three labs that students found most rewarding in this part were designing the software algorithm for a demand pacemaker, interfacing switches and LEDS, and the finite state machine traffic light controller.

To complete this course, you will be required to purchase a Texas Instruments TM4C123 microcontroller kit and a few electronic components.

This microcontroller has a state-of-the-art ARM Cortex-M4 processor.

We will provide instructions about purchasing the kit and installing required software at: http://edx-org-utaustinx.s3.amazonaws.com/UT601x/index.html.

Nuestras economías están sedientas de energía. Sin energía la economía mundial simplemente se detendría en seco; no habría generación suficiente de electricidad, combustibles para los automóviles, transporte público, transporte terrestre de mercancías, ya sea por ferrocarril o autobús. No se podrían mover las mercancías por vía marítima, la producción alimenticia sufriría de problemas, el suministro de agua potable se vería comprometido.

La energía ha permitido desde finales del Siglo XVIII, un desarrollo sin igual en los ámbitos científico, tecnológico y económico de nuestra sociedad. Hemos gozado, hasta ahora, de un suministro relativamente barato de energía a través de los combustibles fósiles, generando un impacto ambiental negativo.

La trayectoria seleccionada de consumo de combustibles fósiles hasta el momento, no es sostenible a largo plazo. De ahí el reto que no debemos esquivar, aun cuando lo podríamos negar: ¿qué debemos hacer para lograr una supervivencia futura hacia una economía de bajo carbono con una menor dependencia de los combustibles fósiles, y así asegurar que las generaciones futuras tengan la posibilidad de disfrutar una mejor calidad de vida?

Estamos ante un hito histórico sobre cómo debemos usar y apropiarnos de los recursos naturales, así como trabajar en disminuir la pobreza y desigualdad social.

Este curso te permitirá adentrarte al fascinante mundo de la energía. Los contenidos del curso, además de brindarte herramientas para la interpretación y manejo de información básica sobre la energía, te llevarán a través de los cambios históricos ligados con la energía que han sido fundamentales en el desarrollo de la sociedad moderna. Los contenidos del curso te ayudarán a la resolución de preguntas como: ¿ha sido siempre la energía un factor de cambio en el desarrollo de la sociedad? ¿la era del petróleo se terminará antes de que se termine el petróleo? ¿cuál es la importancia actual de los energéticos en la economía? ¿te imaginas cómo se obtendrá la energía necesaria para mantener nuestra calidad de vida en el futuro?

If you would like to be notified when Version 2 of Energy becomes available, please fill out this notification form. Version 1 is currently in "archive" mode, and certificates are no longer available.

Humanity faces an immense challenge: providing abundant energy to everyone without wrecking the planet. If we want a high-energy future while protecting the natural world for our children, we must consider the environmental consequences of energy production and use. But money matters too: energy solutions that ignore economic costs are not realistic—particularly in a world where billions of people currently can’t afford access to basic energy services. How can we proceed?

Energy Within Environmental Constraints won’t give you the answer. Instead, we will teach you how to ask the right questions and estimate the consequences of different choices.

This course is intended for a diverse audience. Whether you are a student, an activist, a policymaker, a business owner, or a concerned citizen, this course will help you start to think carefully about our current energy system and how we can improve its environmental performance.

This course:

  • Covers engineering, environmental science, and economics to enable critical, quantitative thinking about our energy system
  • Focuses on a working understanding of energy technologies, rich in details of real devices and light on theory; you won’t find any electrodynamics here but will find enough about modern commercial solar panels to estimate if they would be profitable to install in a given location
  • Covers environmental impacts of the energy system, focusing on air pollution, climate change, and land use
  • Emphasizes costs: the cascade of capital and operating costs from energy extraction all the way through end uses
  • Emphasizes quantitative comparisons and tradeoffs: how much more expensive is electricity from solar panels than from coal plants, and how much pollution does it prevent?  Is solar power as cost-effective an environmental investment as nuclear power or energy efficiency?  And how do we include considerations other than cost?

Please note that this is an abridged course, equivalent to roughly half of a full semester-long undergraduate course.  See the syllabus for topics that we include and a list of some we exclude.
