ELECTRICAL THEORY: Basic Electricity Review
This interactive training unit is designed to familiarize trainees with some of the basic principles associated with electricity and electrical circuits. After completing this unit, trainees should be able to explain where electricity comes from; what voltage, current, and resistance are; and how their values can be calculated for various types of circuits. They should also be able to explain how electrical circuits are affected by induction, inductance, and capacitance.
Explain what atoms are, and how they are constructed.
Explain what voltage is, and how it can be produced.
Explain what current is, and state the basic difference between direct current and alternating current.
Explain what resistance is, and state the basic difference between a conductor and an insulator.
Explain how voltage, current, and resistance can be measured.
Explain what power and electrical energy are and how they can be measured.
Explain how Ohm's Law relates to current, voltage, and resistance.
Explain how to use Ohm's Law to calculate current, voltage, or resistance when the other two values are known.
Describe the basic operating principles of a series circuit.
Explain how to calculate values for current, voltage, and resistance in a series circuit.
Describe the basic operating principles of a parallel circuit.
Explain how to calculate values for current, voltage, and resistance in a parallel circuit.
Describe the basic operating principles of a series-parallel circuit.
Explain how to calculate values for current, voltage, and resistance in a series-parallel circuit.
Explain what induction is and how voltage can be induced in a conductor.
Describe the basic operation of a transformer.
Explain what inductance is and how it affects electrical circuits.
Explain how the inductance of an inductor can be increased.
Explain what capacitance is and how it affects electrical circuits.
Describe the basic operation of a capacitor.
