Electric Circuits 1 introduces students to the fundamental principles and theorems of D.C. (direct current) and A.C. (alternate current) series and parallel resistive circuits. In this theory-only course, students will also be introduced to series and parallel circuit combinations in circuit simulation software. This software will be used in both ETET101 and ETEC103 to investigate the behavior of electrical components, test circuits and prove circuit theorems. Capacitors and Inductors in DC circuits will be introduced. The practical lab applications of these topics are covered in the course ETEC101 Electronics Instrumentation & Techniques. Students are recommended to take ETEC101 concurrently.
