Introduction to Electricity & Industrial Controls-Internal Certificate
Credits Required for Graduation: 7.00
DC/AC electrical theory and the quantities of voltage, current, resistance and power will be introduced. Ohm's Law, series, parallel and combination circuits are covered along with multi-meter usage, troubleshooting and safety. Sources of DC power, AC generation, 3-phase power, electromagnetism and transformers are discussed. DC and AC characteristics of inductive and capacitive circuits will be introduced. Required math concepts are covered in an applied format along with a significant component of "hands on" lab activities. Fundamental wiring concepts, relay ladder logic, sensors, timers, motor fundamentals, motor starters and an introduction to Variable Frequency Drives will also be included.
