NST 261 - Electric Circuits Theory II
Course Description: This course is designed to explore the sinusoidal forcing function, complex numbers, phasors, sinusoidal steady-state conditions, impedance, average real power, reactive power and rms values, exponential forcing function, poles and zeros in the s-plane, concept of the system function and its use in determining the forced response and resonance, reactance cancellation and concept of s-plane vectors. The course also covers Thevenin’s and Norton’s theorems, superposition, reciprocity, and maximum power in the frequency domain, impedance and admittance. Introduction to matrices and their use in circuit analysis, magnetic coupling, mutual inductance, and ideal transformer. The course includes four lab sessions, which familiarize students with equipment and demonstrate the concepts in the course.
Prerequisite(s): Completion of NST 260 Electric Circuits Theory I and MAT 292 Calculus III for Science and completion of or concurrent enrollment in MAT 298 Differential Equations
