ELEC291 - 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.
At the end of this course, students should have proficiency in the following topics:
- Applications of complex algebra to AC circuits
- AC waveforms (Average, Peak and RMS values)
- Phasor and Impedance diagrams
- Application of Network Theorems (Nodal, Mesh, Superposition, Thevenin, and Norton) to AC circuits
- Low-Pass, High-Pass and Band-Pass filters
