September 1993 - August 2000.*
Instructional delivery format: 
Traditional classroom model
Learner Outcomes: 

Students will be able to: analyze basic AC and DC circuits; apply fundamental laws to series, parallel and RC circuits; explain behavior of coils and transformers using arithmetic, not vector, solutions; discuss and explain the uses of Zener and conventional diodes, transistors, SCR's, diacs and triacs; explain basic behavior and application of op-amps; discuss fundamentals of binary numbers, TTL logic and CMOS technology; and discuss the application of motor generation and field regulation to elevator systems.


Topics include: Ohm's law, series and series parallel circuits, scientific notation, capacitance and inductance, diodes, transistors, SCR's triacs, op-amps, TTL logic devices, hall effect sensors, motor-generation and field regulation. Lab exercises support lecture materials.

Credit recommendation:
