GENERAL INFORMATION:

Course title:

CE 104 Basic Electricity II

Campus: CTEC

Initiator: Romino Victor

Date: April 25, 2019

Course description:

This course covers the introduction and examination of the principles, applications and measurement of alternating current. Students will compare different types of alternating current circuits. The course emphasizes filtering basics, reactance, resonance, RC, RL, RLC, relays, transformers, phase angles & relationships and power factors. Students will apply formula to analyze AC circuits. It also includes the theoretical and practical aspects of series, parallel, and series-parallel circuit construction. After this course, the student will be able to solve series, parallel and series-parallel in AC circuit construction.
