Course Description

This unit covers the determining correct operation of complex series-parallel power circuits and providing solutions as they apply to electrical power engineering work functions. It encompasses working safely, problem solving procedures, including electrical measuring devices, applying appropriate circuit theorems and providing solutions derive from measurements and calculations and providing justification for such solutions.

This learning unit introduces the principle of AC circuit analysis involving: Superposition Theorem, Kirchof Laws, Mesh analysis , Thevenin’s Theorem, Norton Theorem, Maximum Power Transfer, frequency response, complex impedance, transients
