# CP 102 - DC Electrical Circuits

Credit Hours: 3

The study of direct current fundamentals including Ohm’s law, series, parallel circuits, complex series-parallel circuit analysis and circuit theorems. Advanced study in mathematical conversions, generators and motor concepts will also be examined.

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

• demonstrate an understanding of the nature of DC electricity in regards to voltage, current, resistance and power;
• solve electrical problems using Ohm’s law, power formulas, resistance formulas, Kirchhoff’s voltage and current laws;
• apply an understanding of the following concepts: series circuits, parallel circuits, complex series-parallel circuits, opens and shorts, chassis-ground, designing loaded voltage dividers and internal resistance; and
• demonstrate an understanding of DC motors and generators.
