The basic objective of this course is to introduce students to the fundamental theory and mathematics for the analysis of Alternating Current (AC) electrical circuits, frequency response and transfer function of circuits. Through the material presented in this course, students will learn:
Sinusoidal sources and the sinusoidal response. Complex excitations and the phasor concept. Use of the impedance and admittance concepts to solve the sinusoidal responses. Kirchoff’s Laws in the frequency domain and impedance combinations
Sinusoidal Steadystate Analysis:
Nodal and mesh analysis for phasor circuits. Sinusoidal steadystate analysis using other techniques such as Superposition, Source Transformation and Thevenin, Norton equivalent circuits
AC Power Analysis:
Instantaneous and average power concepts and the effective or the RMS value. Maximum Power Transfer for impedance circuits. Other power concepts for phasor circuits such as the apparent power, power factor and the complex pow
ThreePhase Circuits:
Balanced threephase voltages. Threephase connection types such as balanced YY, YD and DD connections. Power in the balanced circuits. Unbalanced threephase systems
Magnetically Coupled Circuits:
Mutual inductance and energy in a coupled circuit. Analysis of linear transformer circuits. The ideal transformer and equivalent reflected transformer circuits, autotransformer circuits
Frequency Response:
Transfer function, decibel scale and Bode plots. The series and parallel resonance circuits. Frequency response of filters, passive and active filter circuits. Filter design using magnitude and frequency scaling
The Laplace Transform and Circuit Analysis in the sDomain:
The Laplace transform, inverse Laplace transform and transform properties. Application of the Laplace transform to electric circuits and the transfer function
