ELEC281 - Network Theory II

In this continuation of Network Theory I, the concept of complex impedance and admittance is presented and circuits are solved using network theorems. Magnetic circuits and transformer concepts are presented as well as three-phase balanced circuits. Prerequisite: ELEC231 Network Theory I; MATH290 Calculus II. Day Course.
