Fundamentals of Electricity
Credits: 3
Location: North
Department: MEC Mechatronics Technology
Subject: Mechatronics Technology
This course introduces the student to the fundamentals of direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) electric circuits. This is accomplished through a series of hands-on exercises performed in the lab. The operation of basic circuit components and their electrical quantities are observed by constructing circuits and using a digital multimeter (DMM) to measure their operation. Students will learn how to read a schematic diagram and build series and parallel circuits from these diagrams.
