This course is the 2nd in a three part series intended to support the flipped classroom approach for traditional basic electronics classes. Basic Electronics 2 covers capacitors and the transient capacitor charge and discharge process, inductors and the transient inductor storage and release process, sinusoidal properties, complex numbers and complex impedance, phasors, AC Ohm’s Law, series AC circuit analysis, parallel AC circuit analysis, and series-parallel AC circuit analysis. The text includes discussions of Kirchhoff’s Voltage Law, the AC Voltage Divider Rule, Kirchhoff’s Current Law, and the AC Current Divider Rule. Additionally the text covers use of AC voltmeters, AC ammeters, function generators, and oscilloscopes. These resources are meant to accompany a hands on lab with the guidance of an instructor.
This course is the 3rd installment in a three part series intended to support the flipped classroom approach for traditional basic electronics classes. Basic Electronics 3 covers apparent, real, and reactive power and power factor, power factor correction, ideal and non-ideal transformers, and transformer connection diagrams, AC circuit analysis techniques and theorems like source conversion, the AC superposition theorem, AC Thevenin’s Theorem, and the AC Maximum Power Transfer Theorem, 3 phase AC systems including balanced and unbalanced 4 wire Y configurations, 3 wire Y configurations, and delta configurations, the single wattmeter method and the two wattmeter method. These resources are meant to accompany a hands on lab with the guidance of an instructor.
This collection of instructional resources is intended to support teaching the “Hydraulics and Electrical Control of Hydraulic Systems” class using the flipped classroom format where lecture content is placed online and all class time is re-purposed into a hands on workshops or lab activities. Lectures are available at all times and can be paused, rewound, and reviewed to support the learning process. Additionally, these resources can be used to facilitate supplementary or remedial instruction.
Success in this course depends upon the active participation and discipline of the student. Watch the assigned lectures in the sequence dictated by your instructor and use the associated study guides to assist in comprehension of the material. Pause the lecture when asked to do so and attempt the example problems. If you struggle with the example problem, the online lecture will guide you to the correct solution.
These resources are divided into 6 units where each unit might take a 1-2 weeks to assimilate, review, and conduct associated lab activities. The complete playlist is arranged in the intended sequence, however, a particular class may choose to place more or less emphasis on a particular topic given that class’s intended focus.
All of the recorded lectures are collected in a YouTube playlist.
