Catalog Data

Special types of linear networks are analyzed using the circuit analysis techniques learned in EE-201. These special applications include three-phase balanced AC circuits, circuits containing coupled coils (including the linear and ideal transformer), operational amplifier circuits, and two-ports. Analysis techniques will include both classical methods and computer simulation using SPICE. (prerequisite: EE-201).
