ERT 105/3 ELECTRICAL TECHNOLOGY
This course is intended to provide students with clear understanding of the DC and AC circuits, basic principles of 3-phase AC circuits, electro-magnetism and magnetic circuits. They will also gain an understanding of the basic operating principles and performance analysis of three most commonly used electric machines, namely, transformers, dc machines, and induction motors.
Ability to explain the principle elements of DC and AC circuits such as current, voltage, power, energy, nodes, branches etc.
Ability to analyze the DC and AC circuits by using Ohm’s Law, Kirchhoff’s Current Law, Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law, Source Transformation and Thevenin’s theorem.
Ability to calculate and analyze parameters of three phase AC system for Wye and Delta connection.
Ability to analyze the basic concept of magnetism and electromagnetism and its application in DC and AC machines.
