This course covers advanced principles of passive DC and AC electrical circuits. The DC network is initially introduced to provide a solid understanding of the relationships of multiple current and voltage supply configurations in multi-loop circuits. The single-phase sinusoidal AC network is then introduced followed by multi-phase AC networks. Basic filtering networks and transformer theory are also covered. Substantial laboratory-based activities are included to reinforce and validate the circuit theory. A basic background in college-level general physics II is required as well as a working knowledge of complex-number mathematics, simultaneous equations, and basic trigonometry to enroll in this course.
