ELEC1500 - Circuit Theory II

The concepts of impedance and admittance in sinusoidal circuits are examined. Circuits are solved using superposition, Thevenin, Norton, nodal, and mesh analysis. Resonant circuits and transformer theory are also studied. Laboratory work and computer-aided analysis techniques are designed to correlate with theory. Prerequisite: ELEC1100, Circuit Theory I. Corequisite: MATH1500, Precalculus.
