Basic Fundamentals of Electricity and DC Circuit Analysis

Last updated 5/2022 English

Electricity, Power, Law's & Theorems, Resistors, Capacitors and Inductors, Circuit Current Flow

This course examines Ohm's Law, Series and Parallel Circuits, the first, and perhaps most important, relationship between current, voltage, and impedance, Ohm’s Law, and its relevance to Series and Parallel Circuits. Subsequently this will lead to the development of Kirchhoff's Laws as they help to further analyze Network Analysis & Metering Circuits.

Conductors and Insulators are investigated along with their connected components, Capacitors, Inductors and how they are influenced by Electromagnetism.

Who this course is for

Anyone wanting to understand the Basic concepts of electricity, it's laws, theorems and DC circuit analysis as it applied to resistors, capacitors and inductors.

  1. I’m very new to electrical anything so this is pretty helpful ~ L McDonald
  2. His methodology is clear and simple. Makes understanding of the basics - a natural peaceful time. Thank you ~ Walter C
  3. Covers all the basics very well. I like how it also covered practical considerations and applications too ~ K Osborne
  4. Simple terms that are easy to understand. Graphics work well enough to show meaning of terms ~ L Flynn
  5. Good course, can be confusing if you are new to DC power. Very well explained the content can become a little overwhelming. You will learn a lot about DC power in the course ~ T Bradley
What you'll learn
  1. This course introduces the fundamental concepts of electrical direct current circuits, which form the basis to all electrical/electronic systems.
  2. This includes: • Ohm's Law • Power • Series and Parallel Circuits • Ohm's Law • Series and Parallel Circuits • Circuit Theorems (Thevenin, Norton, Superposition) • Kirchhoff's Laws • Mesh Circuits and Network Analysis • Conductors and Insulators • Electric Fields & Capacitors • Electromagnetism & Inductors

The student should have an understanding of basic math and linear equations.
