The course provides introductory treatment of the field of Electrical Engineering to the students of various branches of engineering.

Course Outcome

After learning the course the students should be able to:

  1. Understand electrical current, potential difference, power and energy, sources of electrical energy, resistance and its behavior with temperature.
  2. Use the Ohm’s Law and the Kirchhoff’s Law and star delta transformation for solving resistive series, parallel and series-parallel circuits.
  3. Define Electric field, lines of force, electric field intensity, electric flux, flux density and permittivity. Capacitor, charging and discharging phenomena of capacitors and calculations of capacitance for capacitors connected in series and parallel circuits.
  4. Describe the magnetic field, Faradays Laws; Lenz's Law; Fleming's Rules. Flux density, permeability, the Effect of magnetic field on current carrying conductor. Perform calculation of Magnetic circuits. Concept of statically and dynamically induced EMF, self-inductance, mutual inductance and coefficient of coupling.
  5. Understand the B-H curve, Hysteresis loop and Eddy current losses. Calculate the Energy stored in magnetic fields
  6. Understand AC Quantities, the mathematical operation on AC waveforms, Draw phasor diagram and waveforms for purely resistive, purely inductive and purely capacitive as well as series and parallel R-L-C circuits and also circuit Resonance and Q-factor and derive resonance frequency for such circuits
  7. Understand Concepts of Real power, Reactive power, apparent power and Power factor and perform calculations of these quantities for series and parallel R-L-C circuits.
  8. Describe three phase supply and its advantages. Understand the star and delta connection and their relationships. Draw phasor diagram for balanced and unbalanced three phase circuit. Calculate power and it’s measurement by wattmeter.
  9. Understand the principle of battery, construction of simple cell. Define

Active Learning
  1. Preparation of videos for showing real life applications, Preparation of animations for understanding the concepts, Preparation of Pictures with annotations to explain the concepts.
  2. Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus of Elements of Electrical Engineering is covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should be sent to achievements@gtu.edu.in.
