       4.   Analyzing a balanced, three-phase wye-wye connected circuit and wye-delta
            connected circuit.
       5.   Calculation and conversion of time-domain to s-domain and from s-domain
            to time-domain by applying Laplace transform and inverse Laplace
            transform, respectively.
       6.   Problem solving in circuit analysis by using both Laplace transform and
            inverse Laplace transform.
