This course is concerned with the
analysis of alternate current (AC) circuits. Sinusoidal
steady-state analysis, AC power analysis, magnetically coupled
circuits, and frequency responses are covered. Laplace transforms
are introduced and are used to solve first, second and higher
order differential equations. The use of Laplace transforms for
circuit analysis is studied and applied.
The goal of this course is to extend
fundamental knowledge of circuit analysis by introducing general
techniques based on linear system theory. New mathematical techniques
such as the Fourier and Laplace transforms are introduced and shown
to generalize DC and AC curcuit analysis. The use of computer tools
such as Multisim and MATLAB is emphasized.
The laboratory experience will teach you how to design, prototype
and fabricate useful electrical circuits. Extensive use of simulation
tools will be made to debug and verify hardware performance.
