ELE-2120 AC Circuits

This course covers an introduction to alternating current, inductance, capacitance, inductive and capacitive reactance, fundamental AC circuitry, and single phase transformer.

Advisory: Advisory: Knowledge of basic DC circuits (or a course equivalent to ELE-2110: DC Circuits) and an understanding of trigonometric functions (or proficiency in a course equivalent to at least MAT-1290: Precalculus) is needed to succeed in this course.

Note: This course requires that students use NI Circuit Design Suite software, which is a Windows-based product and will not run on Macs. Students can run this software and other Windows software on a Mac using Apple's Boot Camp technology or third-party virtualization tools like Parallels or VMWare Fusion. These tools make it possible to run Mac OSX and a Windows operating system side by side. This solution will require a Windows license.
