Time-on-Task Hours: 41

Course Description:

Basic Electricity is an introductory level course for individuals working in industrial skilled trades and maintenance technician jobs. The course covers the basic nature and functionality of electricity. Students will explore the basic properties of electrical circuit, voltage, current, resistance and power. In addition, students will learn to utilize Ohm’s Law to determine electrical properties in series and parallel circuits and apply Watt’s Law to simple circuits.


Course Objectives:

• Identity basic electricity components and their schematic symbols
• Know basic DC circuit properties—voltage, current, resistance and power
• Analyze voltage sources
• Determine resistor values using the resistor color code
• Apply Ohm’s Law to simple series and parallel circuits
• Apply Watt’s Law to simple circuits
• Calculate parallel resistors
• Learn basics to using a digital multimeter

eBook Information

The text assumes that the reader has no prior electrical training, and is written at a level that makes it readily accessible to all postsecondary students. From the start, Paynter and Boydell's goal has been to produce a fundamentals book that students can really use in their studies.

The chapters follow a logical progression that begins with fundamental topics such as safety, electrical and electronic career paths, and test equipment, followed by electrical properties, units of measure, fundamental electrical laws, DC components and circuits, residential electrical wiring, magnetism, AC components and circuits, three-phase AC, transformers, generators and motors, alternators, power transmission and distribution, green power, and copper and fiber optic cabling. These topics prepare the reader for the courses that follow while providing a solid foundation for both traditional and emerging electrical career paths.
