ETM 110 - Electrical Power and Control Circuits
Formerly: IA 100
This course focuses on the concepts and principles of electricity, magnetism and logic applied to electrical power and control logic circuits. Major topics studied in this course include relay ladder logic control circuits, electric motor control circuits, solid state control systems, single and three phase transformers and motors, DC motors, rectifiers, generators/alternators and a variety of input and output control devices applied to automation and machine tool applications. Emphasis is placed on reading, drawing and analyzing ladder logic, line diagrams and wiring diagrams as a global means of communication in the electrical field. Programmable controllers and variable speed motor drives will be used in addition to hard-wired relay ladder logic control circuits as a means of controlling electrical power components and systems. Team based troubleshooting and problem solving will be an integral part of the course.
