Electrical theory is introduced with a focus on simple explanations that are easy to understand. Answers are given to the questions "How does this work?" and "Why do I need to know this?".
Basic electrical concepts are explained including the meaning of the terms "amps", "volts", "ohms", and "watts". Ohm's Law and why Ohm's Law is important will be explained in simple language. The concept of voltage drop, causes of voltage drop, problems, and remedies will be covered. The differences between AC and DC are covered along with example voltage sources for either type of electric current.
Household and industrial electrical circuits commonly found in the home, office, and industrial environment will be examined along with 1-phase and 3-phase power circuits. The meaning and purpose of "hot wires", "neutrals", and "grounds" will be explained.
As a bonus, attendees will learn, using hands-on exercises, how to safely use a digital multimeter to measure and test simple electrical circuits. During the seminar, the student will test a circuit for the absence of voltage, measure and record any voltage levels present, and identify whether the voltage is AC or DC. The student will be given instruction of how to properly and safely test a fuse within a circuit and will use a digital multimeter to test a fuse which is installed in the test circuit.
Students will be introduced to electrical transformer theory and, using a digital multimeter, will measure the input and output voltage of a transformer.
This introductory level seminar is well suited for people who have a need to understand basic electrical terminology for their job and for mechanical maintenance personnel who will benefit from electrical cross-training.
A Note Regarding Electrical Safety Training for OSHA Compliance:
The 2012 NFPA 70E® requires, in Article 110, that electrical workers be trained to select the appropriate voltage detector and shall demonstrate how to use a device to verify the absence of voltage. This seminar meets that requirement.
