Course Description

This unit covers determining correct operation of single source
d.c. parallel and series-parallel circuits and providing solutions
as they apply to various electrotechnology work functions. It
encompasses working safely, problem solving procedures,
including the use of voltage, current and resistance measuring
devices, providing solutions derived from measurements and calculations to predictable problems in multiple path circuit.
