COURSE TITLE: Circuit Control Devices
COURSE NO: E03-006
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Circuit Control Devices
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides general requirements, classifications, installation, maintenance, testing, and application information for circuit control devices, and covers the requirements for switches, relays and solenoids.

 

Circuit control in its simplest form, is the application and removal of power. This can also be expressed as turning a circuit on and off or opening and closing a circuit. Before you learn about the application of circuit control devices, you should know why circuit control is needed. If a circuit develops problems that could damage the equipment or endanger personnel, it should be possible to remove the power from that circuit. The circuit protection devices (fuses and breakers) are not the control devices; these are protection devices that will remove power automatically in event of overload conditions. Circuit control devices allow you to turn the device ON when it is needed and OFF when it is not needed.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to students, professional engineers, service technicians, energy auditors, operational & maintenance personnel, facility engineers who are interested in gaining a better understanding in circuit control devices.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • State reasons for providing circuit control devices
  • List three general types of circuit control devices
  • Identify the schematic symbols for a switch, a solenoid, and a relay

COURSE TITLE: Circuit Protection Devices
COURSE NO: E03-005
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Circuit Protection Devices
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes how a proper circuit protection strategy reduces long-term maintenance needs and costs, and minimizes system downtime.

 

Too much current flowing through an electric circuit can damage the circuit and can create a safety hazard. How much current is "too much current"? That depends on the circuit and its components. For some circuits, 1 ampere would be too much current, while for other circuits 1 ampere would be perfectly acceptable. A proper circuit protection strategy reduces long-term maintenance needs and other costs, and minimizes system downtime. Circuit protection devices protect electrical equipment by rapidly disconnecting power to components in the event of an abnormal overload conditions resulting from excessive voltages, ground faults, and accidental shorting of a circuit.

 

This 3 PDH online course is applicable to students, professional engineers, service technicians, energy auditors, operational & maintenance personnel, facility engineers who are interested in gaining a better understanding in circuit protection.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • State the reasons why circuit protection is needed
  • Define a direct short, an excessive current condition, and an excessive heat condition

  • Identify two types of circuit protection devices and learn their types and characteristics
  • List the three time delay ratings of circuit breakers
  • Define selective tripping and state why it is used

COURSE TITLE: Electrical Conductors
COURSE NO: E02-005
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Electrical Conductors
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides general requirements, classifications and application information for electrical conductors.

 

A conductor is a piece of metal used to conduct electricity, known colloquially as an electrical wire. Wires are very good conductors, which mean that they have very little resistance. In fact, their resistance is so small that often we consider it to be zero. (In other words, we often treat wires as perfect conductors).

 

In United States, conductors are measured by American wire gauge (abbreviated AWG) for smaller ones, and circular mils for larger ones. To give you some idea how thick these wires are; AWG 0000 wire is about 11.7 millimeters in diameter (a little less than one-half inch thick) and at the opposite end of the scale, AWG 40 is less than 0.1 millimeters in diameter (about as thick as a strand of hair from your head). The wiring inside the walls of your home is usually AWG 10 or AWG 12 wire.

 

This 2 PDH online course is applicable to students, professional engineers, service technicians, energy auditors, operational & maintenance personnel, facility engineers who are interested in gaining a better understanding of electrical conductors.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Recall the definitions of unit size, mil-foot, square mil, and circular mil
  • Define specific resistance and recall the three factors used to calculate it in ohms
  • Describe the proper use of the American Wire Gauge when making wire measurements
  • State the factors required in selecting proper size wire
  • State the advantages and disadvantages of copper or aluminum as conductors

COURSE TITLE: Transformers
COURSE NO: E04-006
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
Transformers
Course Highlights

This online engineerng PDH course explains how transformers convert between high and low voltages, change impedance, and provide electrical isolation between circuits.

 

A transformer is an electrical device that transfers energy from one circuit to another purely by magnetic coupling. Transformers are often used to convert between high and low voltages, to change impedance, and to provide electrical isolation between circuits.

 

A basic transformer consists of two sets of coils or windings close to each other (sometimes wrapped around an iron or ferrite "core"). Each set of windings is simply an inductor. Power is fed into one coil (the "primary"), which creates a magnetic field. The magnetic field causes current to flow in the other coil (the "secondary"). The alternating current that flows through the primary winding establishes a time-varying magnetic flux, some of which links to the secondary winding and induces a voltage across it.  The number of times the wires are wrapped around the core ("turns") is very important and determines how the transformer changes the voltage.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to electrical engineers, design and construction personnel, technical staff and facility personnel who are interested in gaining a better understanding of transformers.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Understand transformer action and its physical characteristics
  • State the difference in construction between a high and a low voltage transformer

  • State the meaning of leakage flux and its effect on the coefficient of coupling
  • Identify a transformer as step up or step down and state the current ratio of a transformer when given the turns ratio
  • State the mathematical relationship between the power in the primary and the power in the secondary of a transformer
  • State the three power losses in a transformer
  • List five different types of transformers according to their applications
  • State the general safety precautions when working with transformers
