Basic Fundamentals of Electricity and DC Circuit Analysis

Electricity, Power, Law’s & Theorems, Resistors, Capacitors and Inductors, Circuit Current Flow

This course examines Ohm’s Law, Series and Parallel Circuits, the first, and perhaps most important, relationship between current, voltage, and impedance, Ohm’s Law, and its relevance to Series and Parallel Circuits.  Subsequently this will lead to the development of Kirchhoff’s Laws as they help to further analyze Network Analysis & Metering Circuits.

What you’ll learn

  • This course introduces the fundamental concepts of electrical direct current circuits, which form the basis to all electrical/electronic systems..

Basic Fundamentals of Electricity and DC Circuit Analysis

Requirements

  • The student should have an understanding of basic math and linear equations..

This course examines Ohm’s Law, Series and Parallel Circuits, the first, and perhaps most important, relationship between current, voltage, and impedance, Ohm’s Law, and its relevance to Series and Parallel Circuits.  Subsequently this will lead to the development of Kirchhoff’s Laws as they help to further analyze Network Analysis & Metering Circuits.

Conductors and Insulators are investigated along with their connected components, Capacitors, Inductors and how they are influenced by Electromagnetism.
