ES 2210 - Electric Circuit Analysis

This course is an introduction to the basic concepts of electrical circuit theory, dependent sources, network theorems, fir and second order circuits, phasers, and three-phase circuits.

Analysis will include steady-state DC and AC circuits using phasors, resistor, capacitor and inductor elements in circuits with both constant voltage and current sources as well as sinusoidal sources. Concepts covered also include mesh and node analysis, ideal transformers, balanced 3-phase circuit analysis techniques and the descriptions of power and energy in electrical circuits.
