# EE 2070 - Linear Circuits - Transients

3 lecture hours 0 lab hours 3 credits
Course Description
After a brief review of DC and AC circuit concepts and methods, the course introduces and develops series and parallel resonance and the transient analysis of circuits, using both classical and Laplace transform techniques.  In addition, the analysis of circuits with step-function and sinusoidal sources leads to a general consideration of transfer functions.  Multisim is used to simulate system responses. (prereq:EE 2060 ) (coreq: MA 235  or MA 2440H)
Course Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
