This course extends upon the concepts learned in Electrical and Electronics Fundamentals and establishes the core material required for power systems and protection & control courses. The course covers fundamental concepts in AC power, transformers and three-phase circuits. Topics include a review in complex numbers; three-phase theory ideal transformer, transformer losses and testing methods, special transformers such as distribution transformers, autotransformer, current and potential transformers and three phase transformers. The course is 50% theory and 50% practical.
This course builds upon the concepts learned in IN3263 Embedded Programming and Networks with a focus on project work that reinforces the concepts covered. By completing this course, learners will be able to identify the processing and hardware needs of a project in order to select the appropriate controller. They will also be able to use advanced microcontroller programming techniques such as bitwise operators, polled loops and interrupts, inter-device communication (UART, SPI, I2C, CAN, etc), hardware timers, external displays, motor controllers, and both analog and digital sensors. A focus on debugging and troubleshooting techniques will complement each topic.
The skyrocketing demand for clean, abundant energy has resulted in a need for comprehensive information that can be used by builders, technicians, energy industry professionals, and anyone else that wants to learn about alternative forms of energy and their everyday uses. This course explores solar, wind, and other sources and the technology available to harness them. Students will gain a better understanding on how these systems work as well as how they are put together.
This course introduces students to the installation & design of various residential circuits used in a common household. Also, students will be working on actual installations of basic household circuits and electrical services used in the workplace. Topics include: introduction to the electrical code, symbols, service calculations, & installations, wiring methods, grounding.
This course is designed to provide the student with a basic understanding of communication networks, telecommunication cabling, communication standards, and how to properly install and test an F connector and RJ45 jack.
This course course builds a profound understanding of various utility power systems and renewable energy systems used in Ontario. The students will learn the principle operation and components of the generating stations followed by learning the fundamentals of low voltage distribution systems and high voltage distribution system and its challenges. Then we look at the cost of electricity and DC transmission systems. This course introduces the student to electrical power systems and is designed to cover generation, distribution and transmission of electric power.
