# EL 202 - Electrical Circuits III

Credit Hours: 3

This course will provide an overview of circuit analysis techniques for AC circuits including the following topics: AC series, parallel and series/parallel circuit analysis; phasors; Kirchhoff’s Law; network theorems; AC power, maximum power transfer, power factor and power factor correction; resonance; polyphase systems: delta-wye connections, three-phase voltage/current/power, vector representation, and balanced and unbalanced three-phase loads; magnetic circuits; transformers; and mesh and nodal analysis.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will be able to:

• apply AC phasor/vector theory and advanced network theorems and circuit analysis tools to combinational series-parallel RLC circuits and determine the voltages, currents, impedance, phase angle, apparent power, true power, reactive power, and power factor improvement;
• calculate the circuital values for series, parallel and series/parallel resonant circuits;
• correctly apply electrical subscripting, symbols and units to polyphase systems;
• apply AC theory to explain basic transformer operation and to determine the primary and secondary values of voltage, current, power, and impedance;
• employ a systematic and methodical approach to mathematically solving circuit problems; and
• identify and use appropriate technical literature for the research assignment.
