AC/DC Principles teaches how to
apply basic laws and analysis techniques to introductory circuits as
well as actual AC and DC circuit applications.
Ohm's law Kirchoff's law, Thevenin's theorem,
and Norton's theorem are also applied to basic circuits. Mathematics
is applied at algebraic and trigonometric levels and all
mathematical formulas are followed by step-by-step example problems.
The text includes an introduction to concepts
of electricity, network analysis techniques, vector diagrams and
phase relationships, and concludes with chapters on resonance,
three-phase alternating current, transformers, and alternating
