DC Theory, 3E
Keljik / NJATC
Discover the fundamental direct
current (DC) principles and applications, as well as the theories
that underlie those principles – all in an effort to build a strong
foundation in electrical technology!
Written with the student
electrician in mind, DC Theory, 3E uses a reader-friendly
approach and begins with the basics of electricity and DC circuits,
including how properties of materials are categorized within
conductors, semiconductors, and insulators. Coverage gradually
progresses to tackle more complex topics, like DC parallel circuits,
DC combination circuits, magnetism and generators.
With an emphasis on safety
throughout, this book provides a valuable combination of both
information and safe practice, providing students with the skills
and knowledge necessary for future success in the electrical field.
- links theory to practice through Field
Notes, which offer added insight and practical tips for the
beginning electrical worker or student electrician.
- reinforces critical concepts with chapter
objectives and review questions.
- engages students with practice problems
throughout the book, encouraging both critical thinking and the
application of key concepts to the world of work.
