Electrical Engineering Principles and Practices for Non-Electrical Engineers

This course--designed for engineers, professional engineers, energy professionals, engineering managers, technical professionals, facilities managers and other professionals who are not intimately familiar or current on electrical engineering principles and practices--will present the principles of electricity in a simple, easy to understand, format. Themed after the book published by the instructor, Electrical Engineering for Non-Electrical Engineers, discussion will use simple analogies and practical, day-to-day examples to illustrate the otherwise abstract concepts of electrical engineering. At the conclusion of the class, you will be able to perform straightforward and common calculations associated with voltage, current, resistance, circuit analysis, DC, single phase AC, three phase AC, power, power factor, service factor, load factor, and much more. Practical examples of electrical equipment applications in industrial, commercial and institutional settings will be covered. Discussion will include electrical equipment, components, safety electronic devices, and test instrumentation; you will also be introduced to important concepts in electrical safety.
