Electrical Control Fundamentals

Electrical Control Fundamentals is designed to educate students at an introductory level, the theory of electricity fundamentals primarily applied to an industrial environment. Key concepts of Ohm's Law are explored to provide students with a necessary foundation in the investigation of Direct Current (DC) and Alternating Current (AC) circuit theory. Electric motors, VFDs and associated control devices are studied along with schematics reading and electrical symbols. The course concludes with an introduction to relay ladder logic. The laboratory component of this course provides practical experience with electrical devices that can be directly related to industrial control components found in industry. This course is a prerequisite for Automation Fundamentals, OPER 3133.
