Course Summary

Introduction

In an electrical circuit, voltage represents the electrical pressure. This pressure allows for the displacement of electrons which produces the electrical intensity.

The flow is the quantity of water running inside the pipe of a water-filled tank. The flow of water can be compared to the quantity of electrons moving through a conductor. The potential difference, or tank level, represents the electrical voltage and the flow represents the electrical intensity in the conductor.

Learning Outcomes

  • Explain what intensity means.
  • Recognize intensity measuring units.
  • Explain the use of intensity in series, parallel, and series-parallel circuits.

Recommended Background

  • This course is suitable for anyone with an interest in mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, or conditional monitoring for mining applications.

HumEng International

HumEng provides online courses and assessments for mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, and condition monitoring for applications in mining.

The HumEng mission is to design, develop and implement training solutions that increase operational efficiency and productivity, and to sustain these improvements through training best practices.

The HumEng approach to training is based on skills management. Experience has proven that the acquisition of key skills, and the transfer of these skills to the shop floor, increases a company's competitiveness. This is even truer today, when operations must often rely on fewer employees, due to rationalization or to recruiting challenges.
