Does your next project require some knowledge in Electrical Engineering, but you're not an Electrical Engineer? PDH Now is here to help.
EE 101: An Introduction to Electrical Engineering Concepts for the non-Electrical Engineer is a course that Guides non-electrical engineers through the many questions that arise when they must interact with and understand the subject of electrical power.
For many non-electrical engineers understanding how electricity "works" and knowing how to specify equipment that utilizes electricity can be confusing. Electricity can't be pumped out of the ground like oil or captured from moving air like wind energy. So it is called a secondary source of energy, meaning that it is produced by the use of primary energy sources such as coal, natural gas, or nuclear reactions. Although it is a secondary source, electricity plays such an essential role in contemporary America that its supply and demand are often examined separately from the primary sources used to produce it. Electricity as a power source is omnipresent, powering the vast majority of our nation's residential, industrial and commercial loads. A loss of electricity, no matter how brief, is all it takes to reveal our near total dependence on the invisible power source and to leave us feeling "powerless," both figuratively and literally.
