This interactive training unit is designed to familiarize trainees with basic principles associated with the parts and operation of electrical circuits. After completing this unit, trainees should be able to identify the parts of a basic circuit, describe the relationships between voltage, current, and resistance in a circuit, explain how current flows through series circuits and parallel circuits, describe the basic operation of transformers, fuses, circuit breakers, and solenoids, and explain how voltmeters and ammeters can help operators detect electrical problems.


  • Basic Circuits
    • List the parts of a basic circuit.
    • Explain how Ohm's Law describes the relationships between current, voltage, and resistance in a circuit.
    • Explain the basic difference between series circuits and parallel circuits with respect to current flow.
    • Describe the basic operation of a transformer.
    • Explain the difference between a step-up transformer and a step-down transformer.
  • Protection and Indicators
    • State the general function of fuses and circuit breakers.
    • Describe the basic operation of a fuse.
    • Describe the basic operation of a circuit breaker.
    • Describe the basic operation of a solenoid.
    • Explain how voltmeters and ammeters can help personnel spot electrical problems before equipment damage occurs.
