Electrical Measurements

Learners will study voltage, voltmeters, and analog and digital multimeters, as well as learn to define series and parallel circuits and describe their voltage characteristics. The segment then covers current and its units of measurement, different types of ammeters, and how to use them to measure current, as well the current characteristics of series and parallel circuits. This segment concludes by explaining resistance and its units of measurement, different types of ohmmeters and how to use them, resistance characteristics in series and parallel circuits, and methods of measuring continuity.

Circuit Analysis

Students will learn about power and its units of measurement, formulas for calculating series resistance and the total power used in an electrical circuit, as well as Ohm’s Law and Kirchhoff’s Law for a Series Circuit. The segment then progresses to Kirchhoff’s Current Law and how to calculate total parallel resistance and concludes with types of circuit protection, such as fuses and circuit breakers.

Inductance and Capacitance

Students will study electromagnetism and the functions of electromagnetic devices, inductor operation, how to measure inductance, the effects of inductance on AC and DC circuits, and how to calculate total series and total parallel inductance and inductive reactance. The segment then covers capacitance, its units of measurements, and capacitor types and their operation, the effects of a capacitor in an AC and a DC circuit, and how to calculate total series and total parallel capacitance and capacitive reactance. The segment concludes with the functions of a fluorescent light fixture, an RC timing circuit in a time-delay relay, and capacitors and inductors in an electric power supply.

Combination Circuits

Students will learn about series-parallel circuits (aka combination circuit), methods for identifying the series and parallel sections of a circuit, and the steps for solving a combination circuit. The segment then discusses: how switches are used in combination circuits; the function of a variable resistor; the types, function, and operation of voltage dividers; and the effects of a short circuit and how to troubleshoot one, as well as how to troubleshoot an open circuit.


Learners will study transformer operation, transformer troubleshooting, and calculating transformer output voltage. The segment then covers transformer sizing, the importance of a transformer’s input and output power relationship, calculating a transformer’s current load, control transformers, and the function of a tap on the secondary of a transformer.
