ELEC 137 - Alternating Current and Non-Sine Waves

3 credits

Alternating current circuits and different waveforms are analyzed: Sine/usoidal, exponential, rectangular, square, triangular and mixed waveforms. Average and effective values are calculated. Complex number algebra is used. Impedance, reactance, conductance, admittance and reactance concepts are studied. The laws of circuit analysis are applied to AC excitation. RL, RC, RLC circuits are studied; simulation and hands-on laboratories to illustrate theory.

Corequisite: MATH 135 College Algebra with Trigonometry .
Prerequisites: ELEC 128 Electrical Circuits .
