About this Unit
This unit is to introduce a number of concepts within electrical engineering. These include The basic definitions of charge, current, potential difference, power; Electric circuits and basic laws such as Ohms and Kirchoffs Laws; Thevenin, Nortons and the maximum power theorems; Capacitor and resistor circuits and time constants, An introduction to Electronics, communication waves, Logic gates and number systems and an introduction to Electrical Machines and Renewable Energy systems Basic principles are explained and applied to a range of typical electrical circuits and devices. These foundations provide students with the basic requirements for a career in engineering where the concepts can be developed or applied to more complex engineering systems.
