A. Objective

To provide the trainee with a review of the fundamentals of electricity associated calculations, and other considerations.

B. Assignment

The trainer will present a fundamental review of electricity, including:

  • direct-current (DC),
  • alternating-current (AC),
  • Ohm's Law,
  • voltage dividers,
  • capacitive effects,
  • frequency response,
  • input impedance,
  • line regulation,
  • grounding,
  • "floating" equipment, and
  • high-voltage measurements.

The trainee will be assigned calculations and exercises as needed to provide practical experience in the proper use of electricity and in the handling of problems associated with its use and measurement.
