# EET 214 - Electrical Engineering Circuits 2

Credits: 4
3 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours

Prerequisites: EET 119

Description
(Formerly MIT-210) This course is a continuation of basic circuit analysis. Emphasis is on alternating current circuits. Topics include effective values, power factors, resistor capacitor (RC), resistor inductor circuits (RL), inductance and capacitance (RLC) circuit filters, multisource mesh and nodal analysis, transformer action, resonance andinductance. Computer analysis of circuit problems is covered.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

1. Define time constant of an RC circuit, transient and steady-state analysis, complex impedance of RC, RL and RLC and of parallel and series-parallel circuits.
2. Calculate total circuit impedance, total and branch currents in a series-parallel alternating current (AC) circuit and leading or lagging power factors.
3. Apply software to measure total current and its phase angle to compare the measured values with calculated values.
4. Solve multi-loop circuits by applying network theorems.
5. Analyze complex AC circuits to determine the maximum power delivered to a load.
6. Produce graphs by using computer spreadsheets.
7. Assess measured and calculated values of series and parallel RLC AC circuits.
8. Employ the oscilloscope instrument to measure phase angle for output voltage of a series RLC AC circuit.
