In your first exposure to designing an electrical circuit, first
with a Direct Current (DC) and then using Alternating Current
(AC), you will learn to understand the basic principles which
control the flow of electrons safely throughout the design. As
you learn more about the management of electricity, you will learn
to recognize components like resistors, capacitors, diodes and
integrated circuits. The textbook will instruct you in the service
of safety devices like enclosures, fuses and circuit breakers.
DC circuits used? Where do you find a single phase lighting
circuit? Who uses three phase power? You will explore all these
questions and more by going through the chapters. Yes, the World
Class CAD Challenges will give you authentic drawing exercises
to accomplish where you must learn to diagram a circuit and
communicate with the symbols showing electrical components.
This primary textbook of electrical design will not present
every single application for controlling or distributing electrical
power, but will start to acquaint you with the basic tools required
to operate satisfactorily in the field. In the Computer Aided
Electrical Design series of text, the authors will continue
to challenge your understanding and help you to achieve a classical
solution. As we venture towards problems yet to be solved, your
solutions will many times result as an evolution of understanding
from where you have come.
exceed the World Class CAD Challenges and you will build the
confidence to design electrical circuits with the best.
