OSUIT Workforce & Economic Development offers engineering training designed as non-credit, certificate, or short-term intensive courses of study. These areas of training include Electrical/Electronics and Civil Engineering.
This course covers the fundamentals of DC and AC electric circuit theory. This includes coverage of direct current, alternating current, Ohm's law, energy and power relationships, and series, parallel and combinational resistive circuit laws. An introduction to magnetism and electromagnetism and their roles in DC and AC motor and generator operation will be introduced. Inductance and capacitance and their fundamental applications will also be introduced, as well as troubleshooting and safety in electrical circuits. Learners will be introduced to electronic test equipment and its proper operation, including the digital multimeter, oscilloscope, function generator and DC power supplies.
Introduction to circuit analysis techniques in DC and AC electric circuits. This includes coverage of rules and laws such as Kirchhoff's Voltage and Current Laws, loaded voltage dividers, Thevenin's Theorem, maximum power transfer theorem, superposition principle, and Wheatstone bridges. The student will analyze combinational inductive, reactive, and resistive circuits. Power factor will be introduced, along with basic passive AC circuits, such as filters, integrators and differentiators. Fundamental transformer theory will be introduced.
This is the first course in programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and applications series of three courses. The course will enable participants to read schematics involving contactors, control relays, timing relays and create ladder logic diagrams, run and test them for automation applications. Participants will be introduced to input and output modules, power supplies, selection and installation of controllers, and interfacing controllers with equipment and HMIs. Upon successful completion, participants should be able to install PLCs, create simple programs for automation requirements, interface sensors and actuators to implement a basic control system.
An introduction to a wide range of electronic devices and industrial automatic controls. Emphasis is placed on motor speed/position controls and programmable devices. Topics include specialized switches, sensors, stepper motors, stepper motor controllers, variable frequency drives, and control systems common to the industrial environment. Participants also analyze how variable speed drives save energy and maintenance costs in industrial applications.
