ELEC291 - Network Theory II

In this continuation of Network Theory I, the concept of complex impedance and admittance is included. Circuits are analyzed using network theorems. Magnetic circuits, transformer concepts and AC power are studied in addition to three-phase balanced circuits. The Laplace Transform analysis and its application to circuit analysis are also studied. Prerequisites: ELEC231, Network Theory I and MATH295, Engineering Calculus II.
