Syllabus, outline , and guidelines

The basics of electrical engineering are introduced in this fundamental course including the principles of voltage, current, resistance, capacitance, inductance, power and energy. In addition, the student is expected to identify, analyse [KVL, KCL] and solve series and parallel resistive circuits. The principal of capacitance and inductance are laid out including its function, and the equivalent series/parallel combinations. The student is introduced to the concept of impedance and sinusoidal waveforms including phasor notation. Finally, the power triangle (S,P,Q) principal is introduced along with the concept of power factor for single and three phase circuits.
