ELEC 102 - AC Circuits


4 credits (3 lecture, 2 lab)
This course covers the study of resistive and reactive components and circuits for time-varying signals. Major topics in AC Circuits include: Sinusoids, and transients, reactance, impedance, resonance, phasors, complex numbers, polar and rectangular notation and conversion, loop and nodal analysis using complex numbers. Use of the VOM, DMM, oscilloscope in the evaluation of time varying signals is stressed in the laboratory.  (This course is primarily intended for students in the AAS Electronic Technology Program offered in the evening.)  Spring semester only
Prerequisite(s): ELEC 101 or permission of instructor.
