A Review Of Alternating Current Circuits By Kerchner And Corcoran: Chapter 103
Alternating current (AC) circuits are ubiquitous in electrical and electronic systems. They are involved in power generation and distribution, signal amplification and modulation, and information processing and storage. AC circuits deal with voltages and currents that vary sinusoidally in time and have different phases and frequencies. To design and understand AC circuits, one needs to acquire the knowledge and skills that can cope with the complex and dynamic behavior of AC phenomena. In this article, we will present one of the most renowned and comprehensive textbooks on AC circuits: Alternating Current Circuits by Russell M. Kerchner and George F. Corcoran. We will outline the main features and topics of the book, and demonstrate why it is still a relevant source for electrical engineering students and professionals.
