Applied Integrated Electrical Math III

SKMA 113

Course Description

Prerequisite: SKMA 112. This course is the third in a series of electrical mathematics and circuit analysis intended to give an electrical apprentice the necessary background to maintain and service industrial control equipment. It will include a study of capacitance, capacitive reactance, vectors, phasers. series AC circuits, power factor and three-phase systems. Trigonometry and pythagorean mathematics will be used in the computation of the phase relationships of the various quantities studied. (45)
