EET 112 - AC Circuits

Lecture Hours: 3 Lab Hours: 3 Credits: 4

Description: This course is a study of capacitive and inductive reactance and impedance in series, parallel and series-parallel circuits. It also includes power, power-factors, resonance and transformers. Circuits are analyzed using mathematics, and verified using electrical instruments.

Prerequisite(s): Take MAT 110 EET 111  
Course Topics:
  • AC resistor circuits.
  • Capacitor DC circuits
  • Inductor DC circuits
  • Capacitor and inductor response in AC circuits.
  • RC, RL, and RLC AC circuits.
  • Power utilization in AC circuits.
  • Series and parallel impedance circuits.
  • Transformer, resonant, and three-phase circuits.
