Electrical Engineering Technology (EET)

EET 109 Electrical Circuits Laboratory I (1) Use of basic electrical instruments to measure AC and DC voltage, current, power, resistance. Introduction to report writing.

EET 109 Electric Circuits Laboratory I (1)

Electric Circuits Laboratory I provides a variety of experiences building electric circuits and utilizing voltmeters, ammeters, ohmmeters and oscilloscopes to take electrical readings. Emphasis is placed on using computer spreadsheet software and computer analysis software. Throughout the course, technical writing is utilized to describe electrical experiment results. Concepts presented in EET 101 are utilized through this course.

Experiments related to resistor color code, the ohmmeter and Ohm's Law provide a elementary understanding of resistance as well as the measurement of voltage, electric current and resistance. Experiments with resistors in series, parallel and series-parallel arrangements provide experience with electric circuit construction and electric circuit analysis in a laboratory situation. Kirchhoff's Voltage Law (KVL) and Kirchhoff's Current Law (KCL) receive considerable attention. Capacitors are studied in charging and AC circuits. The oscilloscope and signal generator are introduced and utilized in later experiments. AC resistive- capacitive circuits and resistive - inductive circuits are built and analyzed.
