Introduction to Transformers
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course describes the basic concept, function, types, and the different components of electrical transformers.  

 

A transformer is an electrical equipment that transfers energy from one circuit to another by electromagnetic induction. They are often used to convert between high and low voltages (step-up or step down). Transformers and their components vary depending on the application and are available in several different configurations.  

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to electrical and mechanical engineers, maintenance personnel and other technical staff 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:

  • Understanding the function of transformers and their physical characteristics
  • Familiarizing with the different components of transformers
  • Learning how to identify a transformer as step-up or step-down and state the current ratio of a transformer when given the turns ratio
  • Learning the mathematical relationship between the power in the primary and the power in the secondary of a transformer
  • Understanding the basics of the different types of transformers
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review section 2 of the " Transformers: Basics, Maintenance, and Diagnostics" document, published by the U.S. Department of the Interior Bureau of Reclamation.

COURSE TITLE: Radar Fundamentals
COURSE NO: E05-014
COURSE PROVIDER: Elie Tawil, P.E., LEED AP
Radar Fundamentals
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides a basic understanding of the fundamental principles, concepts and definitions of radar systems.

 

The term Radar is an acronym made up of the words radio detection and ranging. The term is used to refer to electronic equipment that detect the presence, direction, height, and distance of objects by using reflected electromagnetic energy.

 

Modern radar systems are used for early detection of surface or air objects and provide extremely accurate information on distance, direction, height, and speed of the objects. Radar is also used to guide missiles to targets and direct the firing of gun systems. Other types of radar provide long-distance surveillance and navigation information.

 

This 5 PDH online course is applicable to electrical, instrumentation and communication engineers, as well as other technical personnel interested in gaining a better understanding about radar principles.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Learning about range, bearing, and altitude in relation to radar systems
  • Understanding how pulse width, peak power, and beam width affect radar performance
  • Learning about the factors that affect radar accuracy
  • Understanding the function, principles of operation, and interrelationships of the basic units of a radar system
  • Familiarizing with the classifications of radar systems

COURSE TITLE: Ethical Issue: Deciding if Something is a Gift or a Bribe
COURSE NO: LE1-007
Ethical Issue: Deciding if Something is a Gift or a Bribe
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will establish, through the presentation of many examples, the principles of distinguishing between a gift and a bribe.

 

The federal government has formulated detailed rules covering gifts given to executive-branch employees in many situations. The rules are published in the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) and are illustrated through many examples. Even though the examples are intended for government employees (many of whom are engineers), they also apply to private-sector engineers in similar situations. This course presents selected CFR examples that furnish guidance on the ethics of gift giving in situations that are especially relevant to engineers.

 

This 1 PDH online course is intended for engineers seeking guidance on distinguishing between ethical gift-giving and bribery.
Learning Objectives

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

  • Familiarizing with definitions of a bribe and a gift
  • Knowing the bribe status of a gift based on a personal relationship
  • Understanding the conditions under which gifts to spouses are acceptable
  • Knowing the need to avoid even the appearance of a gift being a bribe
  • Recognizing when gifts involving free attendance at meetings and conferences are acceptable
  • Understanding the importance of the cumulative effect of receiving even small gifts on a periodic basis
  • Learning the importance of gifts received when on assignment rather than outside of work
Course Document
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the course document titled, “Ethical Issue: Deciding if Something is a Gift or a Bribe,” by Mark P. Rossow.
