Presents basic electrical terms, units and Ohm’s Law, analysis of series, parallel and series/ parallel circuits, and the operation and use of batteries. The use of capacitance in DC currents and the operation of magnetic circuits are also covered. In addition, the course introduces alternating current waveforms, average and effective values, and capacitors and inductors in AC circuits. Reactance and impedance are defined. The operation of series and parallel AC circuits, resonance circuits (series and parallel), and polyphase systems are covered. A course fee is required.
