EE 2060 - Linear Circuits - Steady State II

3 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 )
