ELEC231 - Network Theory I
The fundamental concepts of current, voltage, and power are studied along with the properties of passive circuit elements as well as network theorems. Transient analysis R-L, R-C, and R-L-C circuits and initial conditions are studied. Laboratory experiments parallel classroom theory and include circuit simulation. Prerequisite: MATH280 Calculus I; Corequisite: MATH290 Calculus II. Day Course.
