AC Circuits Study Module

This study module introduces students to AC circuits and the components and devices that operate from an AC power source. This includes practically investigating AC waveforms, Capacitive Inductance, RC circuits, RL Circuits, RLC Circuits, and transformer principles.

Typical activities include:
  • Measure the frequency and period of sinusoidal waveforms
  • Measure the voltages across series resistors connected to an AC supply
  • Determine phase shift for a capacitor
  • Measure and calculate inductive reactance
  • Determine impedance and phase angle for a series RC circuit
  • Determine by measurement or calculation currents in parallel RL circuits
  • Recognize the factors that determine the resonant frequency of a series LC circuit
  • Recognize the factors that determine the corner frequency (cut off frequency) of an RC filter
  • Diagnose faults in a transformer

Please note that this resource requires access to an Experiment Platform (either a 300-01 or a 300-02).
