UMass Lowell will resume on-campus instruction, research and campus life for Fall 2020. View the plan for more info.
Serves as an introduction to direct current and alternating current analysis of electric circuits, with emphasis on energy and power. Covers design and use of multi-range voltmeters, ammeters, and ohmmeters, the use of bridges and oscilloscopes, phasor analysis of AC circuits, Trigonometric Fourier series, BODE plots, transformers, relays, solenoids, mechanical analogs and magnetic analogs with the application of Fourier and BODE techniques. Students will also be introduced to DC and AC motors and generators, residential circuits, equipment protection, and introduction to digital logic including minimization techniques. Availability and cost of instruments and components is stressed throughout this course. Not for EE majors. Engineering Science (100%).
Pre-Req: MATH 1320 Calculus II with a grade of 'C' or better, or Spring 2020 grade of "P".
