Basic Electricity Study Module

This electronics study module is designed to connect to the 300-01 or 300-02 Advanced Electronics Experiment Platforms as part of a modular electronics programme.

The study module is designed to introduce students to electricity and electronics through a wide range of practical activities. Using either of the Experiment Platforms, users can select from a range of faults to be inserted into the study module circuits to develop electronic diagnostic and faultfinding techniques.

The board can also be used in conjunction with our optional cloud-based engineering software, which offers online interactive theory presentations, investigations, and assessments to underpin the practical learning carried out on this resource.

Topics include the following:
  • Symbols and Switches
  • Magnetism and Relays
  • Measuring Electricity
  • Lamps in Series and Parallel
  • Motors and Generators
  • Thermistors
  • Fault Finding
Typical activities include:
  • Represent electrical circuits in diagrams
  • Set up and investigate circuits with switches
  • Identify what magnetism is
  • Set up and investigate a latched relay system
  • Explain why metals are good conductors
  • Explain EMF and Potential Difference
  • Use a multimeter to measure current and voltage
  • Work out current, voltage and power requirements for lamps in series and parallel
  • State what resistance is
  • Recognize construction/use of variable resistors
  • Recognize how a potentiometer can be used to set voltage across a component
  • Measure the current flowing in a circuit
  • Measure and calculate resistance
  • State the relationship between electric current and magnetic field
  • Recognize the dynamo/generator effect
  • Locate faults in simple electric circuits

Please Note: This resource requires access to an Experiment Platform (either a 300-01 or a 300-02).
