EE230 Special Network Applications
Textbooks: Fundamentals of Electric Circuits, Alexander and Sadiku, Second Edition, McGrawHill.
Instructor: Hadi Saadat
Catalog Data
Special types of linear networks are analyzed using the circuit analysis techniques learned in EE201. These special applications include threephase balanced AC circuits, circuits containing coupled coils (including the linear and ideal transformer), operational amplifier circuits, and twoports. Analysis techniques will include both classical methods and computer simulation using SPICE. (prerequisite: EE201).
