ECMN 120 Electrical Theory for Renewable Energy

This course is an introduction to the basic principles and theory associated with electricity and electronics as they apply to the electrical trades and renewable energy fields. Topics include electrical units, the concepts of voltage, current, resistance, and power, as well as Ohm’s law. The fundamentals of series and parallel circuits are covered in detail. Concepts and theories involving inductance, capacitance, transformers, single-phase and three-phase power systems are also covered. Students are also provided with a basic overview of photovoltaic and wind power generation. Laboratory experiments closely parallel and are correlated with theory. The purpose of this course is not to provide an in-depth analysis of each topic but to provide an overview for the entry-level renewable energy technician.
