Electrical Circuits

Provided by: Ivy Tech

This course is designed to provide an understanding of circuits using alternating current and the motor operation; The course will provide fundamentals of single- and three-phase alternating current; Analysis of series and parallel circuits, containing resistance, inductance, and capacitance will be covered; Transformer applications both single phase and three-phase along with power distribution will be covered; This course will give each student a general understanding of common types of electric motors, extending from the small shaded pole fan motors to the large three-phase motors; Direct current motors will also be covered; The student will receive an education in motor theory, magnetism and how it affects motor rotation, and how capacitors affect a motor circuit will be included;

Course Objectives:

  • 1 Review of basic electrical concepts (voltage, current, resistance, reactance, and Impedance)
  • 2 Demonstrate and ability to discuss and define electro-magnetism and induction
  • 3 Discuss the operation and use of DC and AC motors
