I don't think you can get by on one book, and I definitely don't think you'll get the "hands on" and theory in one book either. Then there's digital and analog.

You could start with, a kind of online book. They were alright for me when i started off, but that was a couple years ago. If you want an academic intro to circuits, you could try to look up your nearby university's intro to electronics course and see what book they use (mine used [this]

I'd recommend the academic approach if you want to go to advanced territory, you'll need to learn trigonometry, how to differentiate and integrate. As well as some differential equations and linear algebra.

If you're trying to do this on a budget, you could always buy an older addition of an academic book. The fundamentals usually doesn't change much between editions. You could try the schaums outline books on Circuit Analysis as well, they are cheap. I can't vouch for their accuracy though.

This is what I used for Electric Circuits I. I'd say it was pretty good (and obviously covers all that).

When I took it a year ago, the examples were sparse and it felt like the course didn't keep up with the labs. In the first week and a half, we were covering physics fundamentals, the syllabus, and the professor's standards in class and in the lab we jumped straight into voltage and current dividers. We had three or four homework assignments and IIRC there was a single circuit in each homework.

My advice is to get a really good fundamentals of electrical engineering book and work as much of that book as possible. I used this book and I found it very helpful. It would be a good idea to watch EE videos on YouTube as well. EEVblog, GreatScott, ElectroBOOM, and bigclive are all good resources.

Most is just taking an equation and plugging values. But, you need to understand the units being used to understand how things piece together. Linear Algebra helps. An understanding of complex numbers and the z-transform is also beneficial for oscillating systems (AC). Id just pick up a book and go from there.

We used and I'm a huge fan of the book by [Alexander and Sadiku, Fundamentals of Electric Circuits] (

Personally, as a current(lol EE jokes) EE undergrad I like to use a lot of reference material that have tons of examples that are worked out so I can not only check my answers, but check my logic as well.

I would highly, highly recommend <Fundamentals of Electric Circuits> - <Charles Alexander and Matthew Sadiku>. I use this book even now in my senior year. There are lots of helpful examples that step you through every iteration of the circuit analysis process. I love this book and I think this will definitely ease you back into electrical engineering.

As a side note, it's very easy to find a pdf of this book online. PM if you're interested in the book, but not necessarily the price;)

>2. If it's not too difficult and something that could be learned over a few months (minus full time work), what sort of subjects, books, pdfs, wikis or other resources would I need to be looking at to get started? I'm a web designer so this isn't really my field... but if there's a specific area of electronics that covers this sort of project, it'd really help to find out.

It is too difficult to do in a few months, but if you are really interested in learning, follow the curriculum of an Electrical Engineering BS. First you need to know calculus, this would be a good place to start, get the used version of course. Alternatively, watch the Khan Academy videos for calculus and find some problems to practice, though this will be less thorough.

Once you have gotten to integrals, start your calculus-based physics education. There is no point in really starting before, as algebra based physics isn't terribly useful for actually understanding things, and you will have to relearn it all with calculus anyways. Halliday and Resnick is a fairly good intro text that includes calculus. The one I linked is just the E&M sections, you can learn the mechanics stuff from Khan -- you just need a cursory understanding of the mechanics. Unfortunately the Khan videos aren't very good for E&M, they are generally too algebra-based. Last I checked he doesn't even cover Gauss's law.

After that you will need some Linear Algebra, Differential Equations, Digital Logic, Circuits, and programming just to round out your fundamentals. Now you are roughly 2 years into a basic ECE curriculum, ignoring a lot of filler courses as necessary.

After this it gets a bit more flexible.

Textbooks on Signals and Systems, Microcontrollers/Microcomputers, Antenna Design, Embedded Devices, Electric Networks, and Digital System Design should round out your education. However that doesn't mean you know what you need to design what you are thinking of -- you also need to get a bunch of real world knowledge and practice. Make a few basic devices, get them manufactured, just to get a feel for the process. Delve into the various IEEE standards and UL standards to learn what you need to do to produce a device that can be sold and will be compatible. You have a lot of research ahead of you, so good luck!

Calculus up to derivatives & integrals

    (Circuit analysis)

    (Mixed logic design & Synthesis of circuits)

    Before these I would highly urge that you finish calculus. These two books are what I started with as a hardware engineer @ university (in silicon valley). Then move on to FPGA development. The basic fundamentals are crucial for you to be able to move forward.

Le invito a que se lea este libro:

Aunque, para entenderlo, va a tener que leerse este:

Y este:

Si le parece que la inversion de tiempo es demasiada, y si me da por un momento el beneficio de la duda, dejeme decirle que no hay rayo en el mundo que pueda causar un incendo cuando el sistema de pararrayos esta bien diseñado y el mantenimiento es adecuado.

Es lo mismo de la red electrica nacional. Un desastre producto de la falta de mantenimiento y planificacion propia de la 5ta republica.

Ningun sistema aguanta la combinacion de incapacidad mas corrupcion.

Si no me cree a mi, preguntele a un ingeniero amigo suyo. Eso si, si no es chavista es preferible. Las posibilidades de que no sea un pirata son mejores.
