ELT 111 : Objectives
  
 

The major goals for a student taking this course are:

  • To introduce basic principles of direct current(dc) in electrical/electronic systems.
  • To identify a variety of methods useful in analyzing dc circuits.


  • Upon completion of this course, students should:
  • Understand the basic principles and concepts relative to direct current.
  • Understand important issues in the analysis of dc circuits.
  • Understand the laws and theorems governing the analysis of dc circuits.
    (e.g., Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law, Kirchhoff’s Current Law, Ohm’s Law).
  • Understand relationships between voltage, current and resistance.
  • Understand the significance of engineering notation and the resistor color code.
  • TUnderstand basic troubleshooting principles of a dc circuit.


  • Upon completion of this course, students should be able to:
  • Determine the value of resistors according to their color code.
  • Identify a circuit as either series, parallel or combination.
  • Analyze circuits using a variety of theorems or other analysis methods
    (e.g., Superposition, Thevenin, Node, Norton)
  • Troubleshoot various dc circuits
  •
