SECTION 3 Electronics 133– ACCircuits
AC Circuits is the study of how AC voltages and currents are generated and the effect of AC on electronics components such as inductors and capacitors. AC testing procedures will be emphasized.
Students successfully completing the course will be able to demonstrate an understanding of:
1. Define cycle, alternation, period, peak, peak-to-peak, and effective (rms) values of AC.
2. Define and calculate frequency, period, phase relationship, and amplitude of AC waveforms.
3. Label key parameters of sinusoidal waveforms.
4. Explain the concept of resonance.
5. Solve for XL , IL , and VL values in series and parallel inductances.
6. Explain capacitive and inductive reactance.
7. Solve for XC values in series and parallel capacitances.
8. Define and calculate impedance in series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits.
OUTLINE: Subject matter will be presented in the following order:
