    This 3-hour interactive online course expands on the fundamentals introduced in Basic Electricity I and introduces mesh analysis as a method to solve complex DC circuits.

    This 3-hour interactive online course expands on the fundamentals introduced in Basic Electricity I and introduces mesh analysis as a method to solve complex DC circuits. Both substitution and matrix analysis methods are used to solve the loop problems. Three important theorems, Superposition Theorem, Thevenin’s Theorem, and Norton’s Theorem are introduced to aid in reducing complex problems to a simpler form. This course also covers the analysis of capacitors and inductors in DC circuits including calculating capacitor and inductor voltage and current levels at different time periods. (Intermediate - 3 hours).
