About this Course

Generally, most people are familiar with alternating current (AC) in their everyday lives. It is common knowledge that a wall socket in a home in the United States is 120 VAC, but did you know that the peak voltage from that wall socket is 170 volts? That fact is simply a characteristic of AC that is described in this module.

A technician must have in-depth knowledge of AC generation, characteristics, and measurement to maintain and troubleshoot industrial equipment effectively.

By the end of this course, you will be able to:

  • Describe the operation of a simple AC generator
  • Explain the development of a sine wave output in an AC generator
  • Describe how a three-phase AC output is generated
  • Identify effective and average values of an AC voltage and demonstrate how to calculate each
