AC Electrical Circuits Workbook

Welcome to the AC Electrical Circuits Workbook, an open educational resource (OER). The goal of this workbook is to provide a large number of problems and exercises in the area of AC electrical circuits to supplement or replace the exercises found in textbooks. It is offered free of charge under a Creative Commons non-commercial, share-alike with attribution license.
If you are already familiar with the DC Electrical Circuits Workbook, the format of this title is similar. The workbook is split into several sections, each with an overview and review of the basic concepts and issues addressed in that section. These are followed by the exercises which are generally divided into four major types: analysis, design, challenge and simulation. Many SPICE-based circuit simulators are available, both free and commercial, that can be used with this workbook. The answers to most odd-numbered exercises can be found in the Appendix. A table of standard resistor sizes is also in the Appendix, which is useful for real-world design problems. If you have any questions regarding this workbook, or are interested in contributing to the project, do not hesitate to contact me.
This workbook is part of a series of OER titles in the areas of electricity, electronics, audio and computer programming. It includes three textbooks covering semiconductor devices, operational amplifiers, and embedded programming using the C language with the Arduino platform. There is a workbook covering DC electrical circuits similar to this one, and also seven laboratory manuals; one for each of the aforementioned texts plus individual titles covering DC electrical circuits, AC electrical circuits, computer programming using the Python language, and the science of sound. The most recent versions of all of my OER texts and manuals may be found at my MVCC web site as well as my mirror site:”
