ETE 100 - Fundamentals of Direct and Alternating Current


This is an introductory course designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of direct (D.C.) and alternating current (A.C.). Topics include resistive, capactive, and inductive components in series and parallel, direct current combinations, Ohm’s Law, Kirchoff’s current and voltage laws, the voltage divider fule, and RC time constants. Students will build and troubleshoot direct current circuits using a digital multi-meter and oscilloscope. Additionally, students will learn how to use transformers, function generators and the oscilloscope in testing alternating current circuits built in laboratory. Course content also includes instruction on alternating current concepts including; reactance, resonance, tuning, A.C. to D.C. conversion, isolation, and safety.
Prerequisite(s): None
4 credits plus 2 contact hours = 3 lecture, 3 laboratory
