Electrical Engineering Technology (EET)

EET 114 Electrical Circuits II (4) Direct and alternating current circuit analysis including Thevenin and Norton Theorems, mesh, node analysis. Capacitance, inductance, resonance, power, polyphase circuits.


Electrical Circuits II is the second of two circuit courses aimed at developing fundamentals of electrical circuit operation and analysis. It covers topics in graphical analysis of circuit operation; capacitive, inductive, and magnetic circuits; and sinusoidal excitation and AC reactance due to inductors and capacitors.

EET 114 is normally taken in the second semester of the freshman year concurrently with a coordinated lab course, EET 118. Completion of EET 114 provides a student with all the circuit analysis fundamentals that will be needed for later courses in electronics and AC machinery.
