Two things are important for a circuit to work, 1) there must be a complete circuit and 2) there must be no short circuits. A short-circuit is a term used to describe the phenomena when an electric circuit bypasses its main load, taking a shorter and unintended path. This results in abnormal current levels in the electrical circuits, which can potentially cause circuit damage, overheating, fire or explosion. Therefore, it's important to protect personnel and equipment by calculating short-circuits currents during system upgrade and design.
The purpose of this course 4-hour course is to gain a basic understanding of short circuit analysis.
The course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of course materials.
