Basic Electrical Theory - Overview of AC Power, AC Generators, AC Reactive Components, and Voltage Regulators

A. Bhatia, B.E.

Alternating current (AC) unlike Direct current (DC) flow first in one direction then in the opposite direction. The most common AC waveform is a sine (or sinusoidal) waveform. This electrical training course provides a basic introduction to AC theory, electrical circuits, AC generator and voltage regulation. This course will be extremely helpful to individuals who are just beginning a career in electrical work, or who require a basic knowledge of electrical principals and equipment to better their primary responsibilities. This course is also a prerequisite for the all other electrical training.

This 4-hr course material is based entirely on US Department of Energy training materials DOE-HDBK-1011/3-92, Fundamentals Handbook, Electrical Science, and Volume 3 of 4. The volumes 1, 2 and 4 of the handbook have been separately listed.

The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
