ET 129 - Electrical Theory 1

4 Credit(s)

First course of a two-term sequence in electrical theory. This first term defines basic electrical units and laws of electrical theory as they apply to DC series, parallel, and combination circuits. AC waveforms and AC circuit components are introduced. Digital multimeters, oscilloscopes and function generators are used to measure electrical signals and troubleshoot basic circuits.

Prerequisite: RD 087  and EL 115  OR prior college AND MTH 060  or higher with a grade of C- or better, or placement test.
Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this course, the student should 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.
