Unit 8: Series-Parallel AC Circuits


In Unit 6 and Unit 7 you learned that to analyze a series AC circuit or a parallel AC circuit, you follow the same steps as when you analyze a series DC circuit or a parallel DC circuit, but that at each step you must use complex numbers instead of real numbers. We'll see in this unit that, as you've probably guessed, series-parallel AC circuits are a lot like series-parallel DC circuits, except that again you need to use complex numbers throughout the analysis.
