Learning Outcomes

The student has a good command of phasor calculations of AC circuits, is able to apply phasor diagrams and associated calculations on real circuits, and knows how to select the best solution technique to a given application. The student can utilize mathematical software of the field.

Student's Workload

The total amount of student's work is 81 h, which contains 42 h of contact studies in the youth program and 30 h of contact studies in the adult program. The remaining time is used for individual studies.
The assessment of student’s own learning 1 h is included in contact lessons.


Phasor diagrams and associated calculations, power in AC circuits, series and parallel resonance circuits and their applications. The use of matrix equations in the loop and node methods, the superposition method, Thevenen and Norton techniques, applications. Simple network functions, decibel calculations, circuits with amplifiers.
