Course Summary

Introduction

In order to produce electricity, there must be a difference between the negative and positive charges applied to the ends of circuits.

Electrons are like flowing water; as water flows from a filled tank to an empty connected one, so do the electrons. As electrons travel from a power source in a wire towards the ground, they create the voltage or potential difference. In this module, we will show how to create the difference between the charges.

Learning Outcomes

  • Explain what voltage is.
  • Recognize the measuring unit of voltage and solve basic calculations.
  • Recognize the various terms pertaining to voltage.
  • Explain the use of voltage 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.
