WTT 112-1 Electronics Theory I

The study of alternating current (AC) circuits begins with the generation of a sine wave and review of trigonometric functions and continues through resonance and filter circuits.  In-depth look at inductors and capacitors and how they affect an AC and DC circuit differently. Introduction to the components of electronics, both passive and active. Subjects studied include power supplies, solid state components, frequency, resistance, capacitance, modulation, wave theory, testing devices and electronic systems as they are used in the control of a wind turbine.  Prerequisite: WTT 105.  Must earn a grade of C or higher in order to enroll in subsequent courses.
