Electrical Resistance in Basic Electricity

Areas of Study: Maintenance

The addition of a component in an electric circuit creates an opposition to the displacement of electrons. This opposition constitutes a load which transforms electrical energy into mechanical energy, light energy, or others. Edumine and HumEng International are collaborating on the delivery of online courses for mechanical maintenance, electrical maintenance, and conditional monitoring for mining applications.

Course Summary

Introduction

The addition of a component in an electric circuit creates an opposition to the displacement of electrons. This opposition constitutes a load which transforms electrical energy into mechanical energy, light energy, or others.

Resistance reduces the quantity of transformable energy by lowering the voltage and the total current available. It is wasteful in some cases, like corrosion on battery terminal, or useful like in a variable speed controlled fan. In this module, we will look at the usefulness of resistances and their impact on series and parallel electrical circuits.

Learning Outcomes

  • Explain what resistance is.
  • Recognize the resistance measuring unit.
  • Solve calculations on 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.
