This course covers the fundamentals of electrical engineering including electricity and magnetism, magnetic field and magnetic flux, and Ohm's Law. It then looks at electrical components and circuits including resistors, RC and RL circuits, and impedance, reactance, and resonance. Both direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) are then investigated by focusing on the power, voltage, and frequency of each.
Each week has a one-hour pre-recorded session with the instructor. There is a total of five hours of pre-recorded sessions in this course.
- Week 1: Introduction
- Week 2: Electrical Fundamentals
- Week 3: Electrical Components and Circuits
