ELEC 101 - Electrical Theory 2b
An alternating current circuits course that covers the response of RCL and transformer circuits to combinations of sinusoidal (AC) voltage and current sources utilizing network theorems and systems of equations. Polyphase systems and the transient response of simple capacitive and inductive circuits are also covered. Students are taught to work competently with sinusoidal voltage expressions, sinusoidal phase displacements, complex numbers, complex impedance, complex powers, power factors, and graphical PSPICE circuit simulation software. Prerequisite: minimum C grade in ELEC 100 or permission of instructor 4 credits (3 lecture hours, 1 recitation hour, 2 laboratory hours), spring semester This course satisfies SUNY General Education Requirements for Natural Sciences.
