Duration 1 module (40 hours)
This module helps prepare students for further learning in the power applications of electricity. It provides students with the fundamental concepts of alternating current and the terms used to describe waveforms and sine waves in particular. They will gain an understanding of how resistive, inductive and capacitive components behave in an AC circuit. Students will develop further skills in working with and solving problems in single source series and parallel AC circuits. An introduction to basic transformer principles is also covered.
