This course introduces active devices into DC and AC circuits. Semiconductor materials, pn junctions, diodes, BJT’s, FET’s, and more complex active devices such as operational amplifiers will be examined. Parameter measurements in normal and faulted circuits will be emphasized in order to further develop system troubleshooting competence. The fundamentals of digital circuit concepts will also be explored, including digital number systems, logic gates, and flip flops.
- This course is open to Applied Process Technology, Power Plant Technology, Electric Utility Technology, Mechatronics, or Petroleum Technology majors only. Other students may be admitted with coordinator consent.
