Description

An electrical circuit describes about the current and voltage flow. This flow is different for different types of circuits like open, closed and short circuits. To measure this current and voltage Kirchhoff's current and voltage laws are used. It comprises of poly phase systems like star & delta systems, and their power factor analysis. This power factor varies with balanced loads and unbalanced loads.
This course is designed to have basic knowledge about the electrical circuits, mesh & node analysis and also describes about the balanced and unbalanced loads in detail.
After completing the course students will know how to calculate the current, voltage& resistance in a circuit, a wide knowledge about complex inductance, power factor analysis and poly phase systems.
