Teaches principles and operation of laboratory instruments such as VOM, electronic voltmeters, digital multimeters, oscilloscopes, counters, wave generators, and power supplies. Presents application to circuit measurements, including transient and steady-state response of simple networks with laboratory applications of laws and theories of circuits plus measurement of AC quantities. Laboratory 3 hours per week.
GENERAL COURSE PURPOSE
The course will familiarize the student with laboratory instruments and procedures, as related to the circuit theories taught in EGR 251-252. It will form the foundation for all later work with electrical instrumentation.
ENTRY LEVEL COMPETENCIES
Prerequisite for this course is EGR 251 - "Basic Electric Circuits I" or EGR 250 - Electrical Theory".
The objective of this course is to convey to the student the basic operational principles of various multipurpose laboratory instruments including voltmeters, multimeters, ammeters, oscilloscopes, waveform generators, counters, power supplies and the like. The objective will also demonstrate the use for measurements in specific circuits.
