Big Bad Tech: In this lesson we'll introduce and discuss the most fundamental of all electrical relationships known as Ohm’s Law. We’ll learn the cause, effect, and opposition relationship between voltage, current, and resistance and use it to calculate unknown quantities given known or observed inputs. Additionally, we’ll use an understanding of Ohm’s law to troubleshoot basic electrical circuits.To View the Latest Video Click Here
Big Bad Tech: In this lesson we'll introduce and discuss the concept of electrical power. We'll take a look at the different permutations of power calculations for DC electricity, sometimes collectively known as Watt’s Laws. We’ll review power and energy and use power figures to error check calculations and to troubleshoot basic electrical circuits.To View the Latest Video Click Here
The Fall Update is in at the Big Bad Tech youtube channel! This channel is a work in progress and will eventually encompass the entire basic electronics series (DC, AC, 3φAC), hydraulics, motor control, motors/generators, power electronics, renewable energy applications (wind, solar, hydro) and more. Additional modules coming soon.To View the Latest Video Click Here
