EDT 207 - AC Power

Credits: 3
2 Lecture Hours 2 Lab Hours

Prerequisites: EDT 109  

This course is a study of the effects of inductance and capacitance in series and parallel circuits. Students will learn single-phase and three-phase alternating current (AC) power characteristics. Topics include single-phase and three-phase transformer operations, phase-to-phase and phase-to-neutral voltage, current and power factors.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:

  1. Define basic terms of electricity.
  2. Apply Ohm’s law to series circuits and parallel circuits.
  3. Use meters to measure voltage, current and resistance safely.
  4. Explain power, power factor and efficiency in electrical circuits.
  5. Determine the impendence in AC circuits.
  6. Write electrical symbols.
  7. Recognize the difference between AC and DC electricity.
  8. Reproduce sine wave characteristics of AC electricity.
  9. Explain the differences between single and three-phase electrical circuits.
  10. Explain uses of current and potential transformers.
  11. Name different three-phase power systems.
