Summary

Summary

Current with the 1996 Code changes, this new edition provides essential discussion of DC theory, including the latest devices, circuits and materials as well as relevant applications. Designed for courses in basic electricity, this book covers everything from series, parallel and series-parallel circuits, to electromagnetism and electromotive force, to remote control systems for lighting circuits. Instructional aides such as: achievement reviews for reinforcing concepts, practical problems to test readers' learning, learning objectives at the beginning of each unit followed by "points to remember" summaries. This book is a companion to Electricity 2.
