AC/DC Theory: Capacitive Circuits

AC/DC Theory: Capacitive Circuits is part 11 of the AC/DC Theory 14-part training series.

The course will help students differentiate between true defects in the circuits and the effects caused by capacitors.

Course objectives include:

  • Describe commonly used capacitors
  • Calculate total capacitance for capacitors in series and parallel
  • Describe the phase relationships between current and voltage in different types of capacitor circuits
  • Calculate impedance in series and parallel RC circuits.
