To get the most from this course a basic understanding of the fundamentals of electricity and DC circuit analysis needs to be known.

Alternating current is the form in which electric power is delivered to businesses and residences, it is the form of electrical energy that consumers typically use when they plug kitchen appliances, televisions, fans and electric lamps into a wall socket.

The usual waveform of alternating current, in most electric power circuits, is a sine wave. This course deals specifically with sinusoidal waveforms and will provide the student with a basic understanding of working with circuits involving Alternating Current. Sinusoidal waveforms, vectors and phasors, reactance and impedance of R, L, C circuits, as they relate to the basic laws and theorems of electricity will be covered in this course. How to work with AC Power, Power Factor, Resonance, Complex Numbers, Reactance and Impedance are also included within the course.
