Introduction to Electronics Technology (ELC-100)
This course presents an orientation to the various subspecialties within the field, their interrelationships, and their range of applications. The course also covers introductory topics in electrical and electronics drafting, computer-aided circuit analysis, and electronic fabrication.
This course includes Ohms and Kirchoffs laws for analysis of series, parallel, and series/parallel circuits, and Thevenins and Nortons theorems for multiple-loop circuits. Capacitance and inductance transient behavior is also studied, as well as branch, mesh, and node analysis.
This course covers the basics of power systems for residential, commercial, and industrial applications from a practical viewpoint.
This course covers the basics of how to site, design, and install (PV) systems. Topics include shading, the orientation of arrays, sizing for grid-connected and off-grid systems, design of systems for a given electrical load, safety practices for installers and the requirements of the National Electrical Code (NEC.) A PV system will be assembled and installed in class. This course can serve as a pre-requisite for the North American Board of Certified Energy Practitioners (NABCEP.)
Pre or Co-requisite(s): Licensed electrican, completion of IBEW training, a co-requisite of ELC-110, or by permission of the Academic Department Chair
This course introduces sinusoidal inputs and time response of RL, RC, and RLC circuits. Network theorems for AC-circuits are covered, as well as resonance, filters, and pulse response of reactive circuits.
This course is an introduction to the fundamental concepts and applications of solid-state devices.
This couse is the second course in a two-course sequence in electronics. It builds upon the first course with a study of solid-state voltage and power amplifiers, emitter followers, field-effect transistors and circuits, thyristors, frequency effects, and op-amps.
This course emphasizes the application of electronic communication theory to practical systems. This first course of a two-course sequence covers AM and FM systems, television, and telephone. Digital and data communication will be introduced, and continued in Communication Systems II.
This course follows the first course in this sequence, continuing work in digital and data communication, and then covers transmission lines, radiowave propagation, antennas, microwave systems, satellite communications, fiber-optic systems, and cellular communication systems.
