Course Description

The purpose of this class is to develop the student’s knowledge and skills in DC/AC machines and basic control circuits, PPE, electrical panels and overcurrent protection. The DC/AC machines will focus on the wiring and troubleshooting of DC shunt motors, single phase motors (split-phase, capacitor start, and permanent capacitor), dual voltage transformers, and three phase motors.  The basic control circuits will consist of start/stop/jog, dual start/stop, sequence circuits, and reversing circuits. There will also be a module focused on the installation of a PLC system (based on the MicroLogix 1200 PLC). Students will learn how to utilize a test equipment and electrical prints to troubleshoot electrical systems.
