EDT 207 - AC Power
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.
Upon successful completion of the course, the student will:
- Define basic terms of electricity.
- Apply Ohm’s law to series circuits and parallel circuits.
- Use meters to measure voltage, current and resistance safely.
- Explain power, power factor and efficiency in electrical circuits.
- Determine the impendence in AC circuits.
- Write electrical symbols.
- Recognize the difference between AC and DC electricity.
- Reproduce sine wave characteristics of AC electricity.
- Explain the differences between single and three-phase electrical circuits.
- Explain uses of current and potential transformers.
- Name different three-phase power systems.
- Basic electrical safety
- Units and electrical notations
- Current, voltage and resistance
- AC and DC voltages
- Series and parallel circuits
- Ohm’s law and power
- Power factor
- Phase rotation, KVA, KVAR, KW and power transformers
- Single and three-phase electrical transformer systems
- Energy and circuit protection
- Current and potential transformers
- Capacitors, inductors and impedance
