Mobile Electricity

This course explains the fundamentals of electricity, including voltage, current, magnetism, and Ohm’s Law. It introduces inductance, capacitance, and resistance, and discusses the basics of dc circuits, including series, parallel, and series parallel. It continues with the fundamental components that control circuit current and voltage, their applications, and their associated symbols. It explains how a battery stores and dispenses electrical power and how an alternator generates electricity and concludes with the starting systems and remote start/stop features associated with many vehicles.

Lesson 1 - Electrical Fundamentals

Explains the fundamentals of electricity including voltage, current, basics of magnetism, and Ohm's Law. It also introduces inductance, capacitance, and resistance.

Learning Objectives:
After this course, the learner will be able to:

    • Express constants and variables using SI prefixes.
    • Recognize the formulas related to capacitance and inductance.
    • Explain the relationship between current, voltage, resistance, and power.
    • Identify fundamental principles of magnetism.

Lesson 2 - Introduction to Electrical Circuits

Discusses the basics of dc circuits, including series, parallel, and series parallel. Course continues with the fundamental components that control circuit current and voltage, their applications, and their associated symbols.

Learning Objectives:
After this course, the learner will be able to:

    • Define a circuit.
    • List and describe three types of DC circuits.
    • List and describe nine components of circuits.

Lesson 3 - Starting and Charging Circuits

Explains how a battery stores and dispenses electrical power, how an alternator generates electricity—charging the battery, and supplying additional electricity. Then, various components of starting systems are discussed, followed by remote start and stop features associated with many mobile vehicles.

Learning Objectives:
After this course, the learner will be able to:

    • Describe how a battery stores and dispenses electrical power.
    • Explain the two major functions of a vehicle’s charging system.
    • List and describe the five main components of a vehicle’s starting system.
