Course Summary

Introduction

In electricity, one must know the voltage and the intensity to calculate the consumption of electrical power. In this module, we will explain what electrical power is and how to measure it.

For example, in a 12-volt circuit with a 1 ampere light bulb, the power is equal to 12 watts.

Electrical Power = Voltage × Intensity

Learning Outcomes

  • Explain what electrical power is.
  • Recognize the measuring unit of electrical power.
  • Explain the usefulness of electrical power.

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.
