What will you learn in this course?

Description

This course will teach you the basic fundamental knowledge you need to work with AC circuits. If you are working in any electrical engineering industry, this course is essential.

You will learn:

  • What alternating current (AC) is and how to identify AC waveforms. 
  • What phase shifting is. 
  • How to describe AC quantities. 
  • What root mean square (RMS) is and its significance. 
  • What electrical vectors (phasers) are and how to identify their characteristics, such as length, frequency, relative phase angles etc.
  • Polar notation and its relevance. 
  • What the terms reactance and impedance are. 
  • What resistive, inductive and capacitive (RLC) circuits are.
  • How to describe power flow within an AC circuit.
  • What harmonic frequency is. 
  • Significance of resonance frequency in AC generators.


Instructor

Graham has been involved with the power engineering industry for over 35 years. He has taught thousands of students, both online, and offline. In this course, he will pass onto you some of what he has learnt during his time in the power engineering industry.

So if you want to learn about AC circuit analysis, you have come to the right place!
