CTSEET is the documentation website for courses offered by Dr. M. E. AlSharidah. It records all course descriptions, learning outcomes, objectives, syllabus, and notes.

## 2. Syllabus, outline , and guidelines

### Description:

This course starts with presentation of source conversion. The chapters thereafter focus on the fundamental theorems of DC electrical network such as mesh analysis, nodal analysis, superposition, Thevenin's and Norton's theorems, maximum power transfer and finally Millman's theorem. The same theorems are repeated for AC electrical networks. Finally, methods for analyzing and calculating electrical quantities of balanced three-phase systems will be discussed.
