EIC 155 AC Circuit Fundamentals
Up one level
Emphasizes resistance, current, voltage, and power in AC, measurements, computations of series and parallel circuits, circuit analysis, and troubleshooting with basic test equipment. It covers the principles of AC electricity, magnetism, inductive and capacitive circuits; use of phasors to represent AC quantities; the concept of reactive volt-amperes and power factor; and use of instruments, including VOM’s and oscilloscopes. The course explores the principles of polyphase alternating current systems, Wye and Delta circuit configurations; safety procedures will be explored.
Prerequisites: EIC 150 or permission of instructor.
