Electrical and Electronic Principles

The aims of this section are to re-introduce myself to the vocabulary, terminology, symbols and notation relating to DC and AC circuits. To enable the me to apply the basic laws and theorems applied to DC and AC circuits. To be able to recognise, select, apply, test and measure basic DC and AC circuits. On successful completion of this section I will be able to:

  1. Recognise and interpret basic DC and AC circuits.
  2. Identify series, parallel and series-parallel DC and AC circuits.
  3. Use basic circuit and component laws for DC and AC circuits.
  4. Grasp and apply basic electronic and electrical concepts.

To complete this section I will be working from the following book(s):
