OBJECTIVES:

At the completion of this course, the student should be able to:

Use engineering notation in the expression of and operation on electrical quantities;

Describe major characte
ristics of electrical components commonly used in DC circuits;

Discuss and relate basic electrical laws and formulas, relating to voltage, current, time, work,
resistance, energy, power, and efficiency;

Solve complex DC resistance circuits by various means
, determining total resistance, all branch
currents, all node voltages, and power in all components;

Build prototype DC circuits in the laboratory;

Demonstrate proper use of test equipment in the laboratory to measure resistance, voltages, and
currents wit
h reasonable accuracy and to specified precision;

AC circuits, motors, and generators, three
-
phase industrial power, power generation, distribution,
transmission, and transformers.

Academic honesty is required in all academic endeavors. Violations of academic honesty include any
instance of plagiarism, cheating, seeking credit for another’s work, falsifying documents or academic
records, or any other
fraudulent activity. Violations of academic honesty may result in a failing grade on
the assignment, failure in the course, or expulsion from the University. When a student’s grade has been
affected, violations of academic honesty will be reported to the

Provost or designated representative on the
Academic Honesty Violation Report forms.

Please see the Western Student Handbook and Calendar for specific activities identified as violations of this
policy and the student due process procedure. This handboo
