# EL 159 - Lab for EL 158

Credit Hours: 1

This laboratory course will provide hands-on experience for DC electrical circuits and will include the following experiments: 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; Kirchhoff’s Laws; superposition and Thevenin’s theorems verified; RC time constant. AC experiments emphasize the use of AC voltage, current and power measuring instruments; measurement of voltage, current and power in series RC, RL and RLC single phase circuits; vector diagrams of circuit voltage and current.

Course Outcomes
Upon completion of this course, the student will 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;
• determine the proper placement of 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; and
• format data into tables and graphs to develop a neat, concise, well-written report.
