Module Description:The aims of this module are to introduce the vocabulary, terminology, symbols and notation relating to DC circuits. To enable the student to apply the basic laws and theorems applied to DC circuits. And to be able to recognise, select, apply, test and measure basic DC circuits.
Learning Outcomes:
On successful completion of this module the learner should be able to
  1. Recognise basic electrical science definitions and principles.
  2. Identify series, parallel and series-parallel dc circuits.
  3. Apply basic circuit and component laws to dc circuits.
  4. Analyse and test dc circuits.
