CP 104 - AC Electrical Circuits

Credit Hours: 3

This course introduces the theory, mathematical concepts, calculations, applications, and troubleshooting of alternating current in electrical circuits. Topics include generation of alternating current and voltage, phasors and complex numbers, theory and the application of capacitors and inductors in a circuit. Students will study the effect of frequency response will have on different types of filter circuits. Theory of motors and generators are covered.

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

  • analyze the nature of alternating current electricity in regards to voltage, current, resistance and power; and
  • demonstrate an understanding of the following concepts: magnetism; alternating current and voltage; power in AC circuits; capacitance; inductance; transformers; resistance and inductance capacitance circuits; AC motors and generators.
