Description

The Complete Laboratory Manual for Electricity covers all aspects of a typical industrial electricity curriculum, ranging from elementary series and parallel circuits to motor control. This hands-on lab manual can be used as a stand-alone or as a supplement to any textbook, as its content spans more than is typically covered in any single text. Each lab includes objectives, a thorough discussion of the topic, illustrations, step-by-step procedures for conducting an electrical experiment, and study questions about the experiment. The experiments are designed to be conducted with common equipment and supplies that can be found in most hardware stores and electrical supply houses.show more
