ECE 202 - Circuit Theory II

Credits 3.5
Lecture / 4.5 hours per week
Requirements: Prerequisite: ECE 201; for CPE/ECE majors only
The second course in basic circuit theory and design. Topics include AC circuit steady-state response analysis, review of complex numbers, phasors, coupled inductors and ideal transformers, rms voltage and current, the maximum power transfer theorem, balanced 3-phase systems, and power and energy computations, applications of Laplace transforms to solutions of switched circuits and differential equations with initial conditions, stability, poles/zeros, Fourier transform, frequency response, Bode plots, network analysis, and equivalent circuits. Students are introduced to graphical convolution and Fourier series. Group classroom and project activities require design, implementation and measurement of filters and other circuits to meet design specifications.
