ELEC 1014 - AC-DC Fundamentals of Electricity

Credit Hours: 4 Lecture Hours: 3 Lab Hours: 2
Corequisite(s): MATH 1233 - Technical Mathematics  with a grade of “C” or better
AC/DC Fundamentals of Electricity presents the basic concepts of DC and AC electricity. General topics covered include voltage, current, and Ohm’s Law, equivalent resistance, power in DC circuits, series and parallel circuits, phase angle and phase shift, instantaneous power and average power, inductive reactance, capacitive reactance, active and reactive power, apparent power and the power triangle. Solving simple AC circuits using circuit Impedance Calculation, solving AC circuits using the power triangle method. This course uses training systems and combines a modular design approach with computer-based data acquisition and control to introduce students to the fundamentals of electricity. The training system is designed to operate at a low voltage to ensure safety of students beginning their training in electric power technology. Offered in fall & spring This course will incorporate a variety of teaching and learning methods- lectures, readings, lab exercises, and lab work.
