# EL 175 - Lab for EL 174

Credit Hours: 1

Laboratory course to complement EL 174 with 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 voltages and current, power factor improvement, current, voltage and power in three-phase circuits, balanced and unbalanced loads, delta-wye connections, data collection and analysis, well organized reports.

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;
• 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;
• develop a neat, concise, well-written report; and
• work in teams to affect the final circuit and data.
