Electrical Circuit Analysis and Design

Introduction to electrical circuit analysis and design of passive and active circuits under Direct Current (DC) and Alternating Current (AC). Linear circuit analysis techniques for various circuit topologies, including three-phase circuits, are introduced. Specific topics include the concepts of current, voltage, resistance, capacitance, inductance, power, energy, transient response of first- and second-order circuits using time-domain methods, and calculation of AC steady-state response using phasors and immittances.  Laboratory work and computer-aided analysis techniques are designed to correlate with circuit analysis theory and design. 3 hours of lecture and 3 hours of laboratory. Prerequisites: PHEN 122, MATH 200.
