201-Electrical Engineering Fundamentals for Non-Electrical Engineers
Course Objectives: This continuing education course is written specifically for professional engineers with the objective of relating to and enhancing the practice of engineering.
Electrical Engineering Fundamentals for Non-Electrical Engineers is a course designed to promote an understanding of the fundamentals of electricity. The course covers the differences between Alternating Current (AC) and Direct Current (DC) power sources by explaining the behavior of the voltage and current for both types of sources. The fundamental circuit building blocks including resistors, capacitors and inductors are covered including their behavior in series and parallel circuits as well as transient analysis. The course covers Ohm's law and Kirchoff's Laws and their application to performing circuit analysis. This course also includes a brief introduction to imaginary numbers and phasors as related to current, voltage, and impedance.
It is designed as a course for engineers that either have not had a substantial amount of electrical training or it has been some time since receiving that training. The course offers easy to read graphs, real world examples, and sample problems to promote understanding.
