Course Description

315 - Introduction to Electrical Theory and DC Circuits
It is important for any engineer to have a fundamental knowledge of electrical circuits.  This course provides an introduction to electrical theory and DC circuits.  The content can be used to introduce yourself to these topics or can serve as a general review.  No previous knowledge of electrical theory is required for this course.

Many applicational example problems are provided for general theory and for DC circuits.  Circuits are analyzed in several arrangements including series, parallel, and a combination of series and parallel arrangements.  Basic problems are presented first that cover key electrical concepts such as Coulomb’s law, resistance, Ohm’s law, and power.  Series and parallel arrangements are discussed based on developing equivalent resistance for the circuit.  More complex analysis tools like voltage divider rule, current divider rule, and Kirchoff’s laws are also used.

There was some missing information in the class that was necessary to complete the test. Luckily I remembered how to solve matrices on my own.

I think that this course needs more work on some of the basic concepts. Some of the units were introduced and some likes volts and ohms just showed and were being used. Would help to explain potential as related to voltage. I was using this to introduce myself to electrical theory and the part about no previous knowledge is a little bit stretching it. When you really don't know anything about electrical theory (like me) there are a few holes along the way that need some explanation. The problems in this course were the most through provoking so far because you had to use multiple principles learned. I spent a few hours on the couple of them that gave me the most difficulty. Fill in the holes and this will be a five star course

Good refresher. Required a bit more thought than some other online course/test combinations. It also wasn't another old government publication repackaged as a course for credit . (at lease it didn't appear to be...)
