This is the eighth lesson in the Electrical Theory for Troubleshooters Course. This lesson explains capacitors, their function, and how capacitance affects AC circuits.
- Define capacitance and identify its schematic symbol.
- Explain how a capacitor becomes charged and discharged.
- Explain how capacitance affects AC circuits.
These lessons are excellent for the training of electricians and electronic technicians as well as for the multi-craft training needs of process and manufacturing facilities. The first four lessons in this course cover basic electrical concepts including Ohm’s Law and Kirchhoff’s Law, as well as the use of these laws to determine voltage, current, and resistance in series and parallel circuits.
