Circuit Analysis 2 ELEX 2105

Electrical and Computer Engineering Course

International Fees

International fees are typically 3.12 times the domestic tuition. Exact cost will be calculated upon completion of registration.

Course details

This course is an introduction to the behavior of electrical circuits and networks when driven by single and multiple alternating current (AC) sources. Topics include the sine wave (average and effective values); power and power factor; resistance, capacitance and inductance as elements in AC circuits; phasor diagrams; analysis of AC circuits with complex algebra; resonance and resonant circuits; high pass and low pass filters; the application of circuit laws and theorems to AC circuits; and coupled circuits. The circuit theory is verified using multimeters, wattmeters, function generators, dual trace oscilloscopes and circuit simulation software.
