A beginning course in electricity, this course covers basic electric circuit theory, the nature of electricity, resistance, current and voltage. Detailed coverage of topics includes direct current, alternating current, Ohm’s law, series circuits and parallel circuits as well as energy and power relationships. This course also covers DC circuit analysis techniques including mesh and nodal analysis, and network theorems such as Norton’s, Thevenin’s and maximum power transfer. The transient response of capacitors and inductors are discussed when a DC voltage is applied using the various circuit and analysis techniques. Additional topics include the discussion of alternating waveform characteristics and analysis of sinusoidal alternating waveforms. Laboratory experiments are designed to reinforce the classroom work.
