In this course, Electrical Engineering students will be taught to analyze RLC circuit in time domain, in phasor form, in frequency domain and in S domain. Student will learn power transmission in single and three phase system, their power measurement methods and power factor correction for efficient transmission of power. Students will be given the concept to formulate equations and choose among the different methods to analyze an electrical network.
