You will develop an understanding of the electrical distribution system by learning the basic concepts for direct current circuits and extending this knowledge to single-phase and 3-phase alternating current circuits.
The objective of this course is to explain, without using rigorous mathematical derivations, the meaning of electrical quantities, including kVA, kW and power factor. Topics include distribution system configuration, electromagnetic fields, major electrical machinery, system protection, power system metering, and the importance of power quality. You will receive an explanation of load characteristics and their effects on power costs.
Explain basic electrical system quantities, identify sources of generation, cogeneration issues, and distribution system configuration
