APR 190 - Electrical Theory 1

1-4 Credit(s)

First course of a two-term sequence in electrical theory. The first term defines the basic electrical units, the basic laws of electrical theory as they apply to DC circuits such as series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits. AC waveforms and AC circuit components are introduced. Electronic test equipment such as the digital multimeter, oscilloscope and function generators are used to measure electrical signals and troubleshoot basic electrical circuits. 

Prerequisite: RD 087  AND EL 115  OR prior college AND MTH 060  OR higher with a letter grade of C- or better, OR placement
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be able to:
1. Read resistor color codes
2. Measure voltage, current, and resistance
3. Knowledge of DC series-parallel circuit characteristics
4. Understand basic AC circuits and use of the oscilloscope
