Course Objectives: The objective of this course is to extend the basic knowledge
gained in EAS230 (Fundamentals and
Applications of Analog Devices) to upper level network problems. This
course will develop the student skills in Circuit Analysis Resistive, AC steady
state, steadystate power analysis, frequency response analysis, as well as
advanced techniques such as

2. 
Be able to apply knowledge of mathematics and engineering science to analyze electrical circuits involving sinusoidal steady state using phasors; basic problems in power systems including rms values, real and reactive power and power factor correction; resonant circuits and simple filters. 
3. 
Be able to apply the knowledge of 
4. 
Have an understanding of how Fourier Series extends steady state analysis to generalized periodic signals. 
5. 
Be able to use simulation and programming packages such as PSPICE in the analysis and design of content areas including AC analysis and frequency responses.
