Course List (4 Courses)
Technical Electricity 1 ET101 3 cr.
This introductory course provides the basic knowledge and skills necessary within any electrical service technician program. It includes an in-depth study of electron theory, Ohm's Law, series and parallel circuits, as well as electrical energy and power relationships. Also included are methods of generation of electromotive force, electromagnetism, and motor principles and capacitance as these apply to DC circuits. Uses, construction, and calibration of voltmeters and ammeters are investigated.
Technical Electricity 2 ET102 3 cr.
This course reinforces information acquired in ET101 and applies it to alternating current (AC) circuits. It investigates AC sine wave generation, mutual inductance inductive and capacitive reactance, and instantaneous values of voltage and current as well as real and apparent power. Uses, construction, and calibration of AC metering equipment are an integral part of this course. Practical application of each topic in both introductory courses are included in all laboratory experiments.
ystems Diagrams ET104 3 cr.
This course covers the types, application, and use of electrical/electronic drawings, including schematic diagrams and symbols, as well as the operation of electro-mechanical devices. It differentiates between schematics and wiring diagrams and develops the use of block diagrams, schematics, ladder-logic diagrams, wiring diagrams, assembly drawings, and bills of material. Topics include Programmable Logic Controllers (PLCs), Basic Relay PLC Instructions, PLC Timers and Counters, and PLC programs in the form of PLC ladder diagrams.
Commercial/Industrial Wiring and Codes ET236 4 cr.
This course introduces electrical wiring techniques with an emphasis on design and layout of single and polyphase systems. Topics include diagnosis and repair of equipment malfunctions, interpretation of the National Electrical Code (NEC), estimation of project costs and progress, and installation techniques. Electrical systems studied include lighting, heating, ventilation, interior and exterior power distribution, and emergency energy conservation. Activities are focused on commercial and industrial electrical systems.
