EE 201  Linear Networks: SteadyState Analysis4 lecture hours 0 lab hours 4 credits Course Description This course introduces the topics of steadystate analysis of networks using time and frequency domain methods with linear circuit models. It includes the topics mesh and nodal analysis, source transformations, network theorems, and complex power. Circuit simulation is also introduced for analysis of steadystate circuits. (prereq: MA 137 or MA 225 ) Course Learning Outcomes Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
