Subject Title
Electricity

Subject Description
This course begins the network analysis stream in the Technology program. All of the basic concepts of D.C. electricity are introduced at a math level consistent with that being done in MTH 155. Thevenin and Norton Theorems are covered in the D.C. Networks area, since they prove useful in applications of Time Constants and associated calculations in Inductor and Capacitor Charging and Discharging circuits.

Credit Status
One subject credit in Computer Engineering Technology, Electronic Engineering Technology programs, and Electronic Engineering Technician programs.

One credit towards the Faculty of Continuing Education and Training, Applied Electronic Troubleshooting Techniques certificate program.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

1. Explain the concepts of charge, current, voltage and resistance as they relate on schematic diagrams.

2. Apply the five main circuit laws (Ohm's Law, Kirchhoff's Law, and Divider rules) to the analysis of resistive series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits.

3. Construct series, parallel and series-parallel resistive circuits in the lab from schematic diagrams using a breadboard and/or a computer simulation program.

4. Demonstrate the safe setup, verification, troubleshooting, and operation of the lab equipment including: digital multimeters, DC power supplies, oscilloscopes, and function generators.

5. Use network theorems (including Superposition and Thévenin's Theorems) to calculate voltages and currents in electric circuits, and demonstrate the use of these theorems through measurements and simulations in the lab.

6. Explain with the help of diagrams, the characteristics of DC voltage and current sources, and convert between these two source types.

7. Calculate energy, power, and efficiency in resistive circuits.

8. Use the Maximum Power Transfer Theorem to calculate values of source and/or load resistance.

9. Explain the characteristics of a capacitor as a circuit element, and determine the transient response of an RC circuit using lab equipment.

10. Explain the characteristics of an inductor as a circuit element and analyze parameters of basic RL circuits.
