# CP 114 - Electrical Circuits

Credit Hours: 4

The study of both D.C. circuits (Ohm’s Law, power, Kirchhoff’s Law, Thevenin’s Law, Norton Law, maximum power transfer, resistance, magnetism) and A.C. circuits (sine wave voltage effects, capacitance, inductance, resonance, and transformers).

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of course, the student will be able to demonstrate:

• an understanding of the nature of AC and DC electricity in regards to voltage, current, resistance, and power.
• an ability to calculate and solve electrical problems using Ohms law, power formulas, and resistance formulas, Kirchoff’s voltage and current laws, Thevenin’s theorem, Norton’s theorem, transformer turns ratio, formulas for frequency/time period of the wavelength of a waveform, inductive reactance capacitive reactance, resonance, RC, RL, periods, impedance, and phase angles of a circuit.
• an understanding of the following concepts: series and parallel circuits, opens and shorts, chassis-ground, designing loaded voltage dividers, internal resistance, maximum power transfer, magnetism, AC current and voltage, inductive reactance, capacitive reactance, impedance, resonance.
