Course Objectives: The student should understand the basic concepts of advanced electrical circuits involving linear elements such as resistors, capacitors, inductors, mutually coupled circuits (including various transformers), all forms of time varying sources, dependent sources, and polyphase systems. The student will be expected to solve these in the time domain as well as the frequency domain. In addition, the student will be expected to solve these circuits using PSpice.
