Alternating Current Fundamentals


Fundamental principles of the behavior and flow of alternating current electricity. Includes problem solving related to current, voltage, impedance, reactance, and power factor in series and parallel circuits. Familiarization with the above principles help to form a better understanding of the operating principles of alternating current (AC) motors, generators, and control equipment.
