Course Brief

This unit will develop learners understanding of fundamental Electrical and Electronic Principles through analysis of simple direct current (DC) circuits. Learners are then taken through the various properties and parameters associated with capacitance and inductance, before finally considering the application of single-phase alternating current (AC) theory. The unit will encourage an investigative approach through practical construction, measurement and testing of circuits and, where applicable, the use of computer-based circuit analysis and simulation
