This six hour course treats the subject of power in three phase circuits. The course will be of interest to any engineer who is concerned with the application of electricity and three phase circuits. This will be the case since three phase circuits are used wherever large amounts of electrical power are used. And, in dealing with large amounts of electrical current the subject of power often arises. Along with the increasing cost of energy, the power consumption of electrical devices and the associate efficiency has become an increasingly important issue. For this reason, the subject matter of this course will be of particular interest as calculating and measuring power in three phase circuits can be a challenge to anyone who has not been exposed to the need on a frequent basis. In many ways the course simplifies the subject of three phase power into easily understood and elementary electrical principles. To illustrate the principles used in the course in an easily understood manner, a number of specific examples are presented and numerous illustrations are included.
This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
