Phasor analysis and AC three phase power; transfer functions; Bode plots; filters and resonance; Laplace transforms; transformers; two-port networks. First and second order circuits.
This course is the second part of an introduction to circuit analysis. This is not a course on physics but on a mathematical abstraction (a model) used to represent a variety of engineering problems (one of which, of course, is the solution of physical electric and electronics circuits). This course assumes that the student has a working knowledge of ordinary linear differential equations, basic integral-differential calculus, a thorough knowledge of complex numbers arithmetic and representations, and the physics background that describes the basic electromagnetic entities and relationships. The student must be completely comfortable with nodal analysis of RLC netwoks with both dependent and independent sources, as well as with Thevenin/Helmholtz equivalent circuits. The approach of the course is very dynamic, and relies heavily on computer software tools (Matlab, Maple, CircuitMaker 2000), and both on email and on a web site. The use of any version of programmable graphic calculator (with a functionality similar to that of the Hewlett-Packard HP-48 series), which is nowadays mandatory for grade 12 students anyway, is advisable.
