AC/DC Theory: Electrical Measurement

AC/DC Theory: Electrical Measurement is part six of the AC/DC Theory 14-part training series.

The course identifies characteristics of test equipment used to measure voltage, amperage, and resistance. It also demonstrates proper usage of test instruments.

Course objectives include:

  • Explain how the VOM works and should be connected to a circuit
  • Calculate the value of shunt required to increase the current capability
  • Calculate the series dropping resistance required to increase the voltage capability
  • Define voltmeter loading.
