IET 114 : Basic Electricity

This course provides an introduction to direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) electrical theory. Topics include atomic theory, magnetism, properties of conductors and insulators, and characteristics of series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits. Inductors and capacitors are introduced and their effects on DC and AC circuits are examined. Students are prepared to analyze complex circuits, solve for unknown circuit variables and use basic electronic test equipment. This course also provides hands on laboratory exercises to analyze, construct, test, and troubleshoot electrical circuits. Emphasis is placed on the use of a scientific calculator, the operation of common test equipment, and the physical wiring of electrical circuits.This course is also taught as INT 114
