PHASOR TOOLBOX FOR AC CIRCUIT ANALYSIS USING MATLAB
The paper expounds the research performed during teaching of AC Electric Circuit Analysis for Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology curriculum. Matlab is the computational and mod-elling engine of choice for the class. The course content consists of complex, polar and phasor nota-tions and their interconversions, mathematical operations for polar a phasor variables, plotting of phasor diagrams etc.
Introduction of MATLAB in the Engineering Technology program empowers the students in the early stage of their learning process. The authors have developed a tool box for Matlab platform that makes computation involving AC Circuit Analysis. Such a tool box does not exist within Matlab. This paper presents a MATLAB phasor toolbox for analyzing ac sinusoidal circuits in the Electrical and Computer Engineering Technology program. The toolbox has functions for conversion among complex, polar and phasor forms. It includes functions for adding, subtraction, multiplication and division of phasors, plotting phasors on the complex plane and in the time domain and many useful analysis.
The paper provides in details the code that is designed for twenty such functions, as a resource for fellow educators. The paper also provides the pedagogical underpinning and some samples of course work using the above toolbox.
