EE 2060  Linear Circuits  Steady State II3 lecture hours 2 lab hours 4 credits Course Description After a brief review of DC circuit concepts and methods, AC circuit analysis and frequency as a variable are introduced and developed. Specific topics covered include phasors, impedance, complex AC power, mutual inductance and transformers, RL and RC filters, and Bode plots. The use of the computer application Multisim is continued to include the AC analysis of circuits. The associated laboratory reinforces the lecture material. (prereq: EE 2050 , MA 137 or MA 1410H ) Course Learning Outcomes Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
