EL 203 - Lab for EL202

Credit Hours: 1

This laboratory course provides ample hands on experience with wiring and trouble-shooting of AC circuits by means of the experiments emphasizing: use of AC voltage, current and power measuring instruments; measurement of voltage, current and power in series, parallel and series/parallel RC, RL and RLC single phase circuits; vector diagrams of circuit voltage and current; power factor improvement; current, voltage and power in three-phase circuits; balanced and unbalanced loads; delta-wye connections; transformers.

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

  • 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 circuit problems; and
  • format data into tables and graphs to develop a neat, concise, well-written report.
