Chapter 3. AC Circuits

Electric power is generated, distributed, and used as sinusoidal voltages and currents in a great variety of commercial and domestic applications. Furthermore, in the industrial world a vast number of small-, medium-, or large-size ac power generators and loads are interlinked. Therefore, the design, operation, maintenance, and management of such systems very much depend on a good understanding of ac circuit theory.

The analysis of ac circuits involves the study of the behavior of the system under both normal and abnormal operating conditions. However, this book is not intended to include abnormal conditions. Instead, it focuses on the foremost fundamental issues and normal conditions and presents visual aids and interactive ...
