# EL 131 - Lab for EL 130

Credit Hours: 1

Laboratory course to complement EL 130, with experiments emphasizing: use of voltage, current, power and resistance measuring instruments, factors effecting resistance, distribution of voltage, current and power in series, parallel and series/parallel DC resistor circuits, maximum power transfer theorem, Kirchhoff’s Laws, capacitors, inductors, data taking and writing a well-organized report.

Course Outcomes
At the completion of the course, the student should be able to:

• apply theoretical concepts to practical electrical circuits;
• display a working knowledge of electrical symbols by constructing a circuit from a schematic;
• select the proper instruments to measure voltage, current and power;
• demonstrate an understanding of the limitations and loading effects of various meters, determine the proper placement of these meters in a working circuit;
• identify basic components and determine their function in a circuit;
• employ a systematic and methodical approach to analyzing and solving circuital problems;
• format data into tables and graphs using manual and computer techniques; and
• write a neat, concise report, submitted on time with an attitude of quality performance and improvement.
