This is the fourth lesson in the Electrical Theory for Troubleshooters Course. This lesson describes the behavior of voltage, current, and resistance in a parallel circuit. The learner is also instructed in the identification of the series and parallel portions of a series-parallel circuit.
- Describe how voltage, current, and resistance behave in a parallel circuit.
- Identify the series portions of a series-parallel circuit.
- Identify the parallel portions of a series-parallel circuit.
- Simplify a series-parallel circuit to determine how voltage, current and resistance behave.
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.
