This course covers basic electronic theory which includes electron flow, current flow, impedance, inductance, and capacitance. Rectification of A/C power, the theory and operation of charging circuits, batteries, voltage regulation and testing these systems will also be discussed. The lab exercises are designed to reinforce the theory taught in class.
