• Industrial Electricity – Power II

    This course covers the principles and applications of transformers.  Typical transformers such as step up, step down, buck/boost, isolation and autotransformers are discussed.  Single Phase as well as Three Phase power distribution derived from transformers within the facilities will be discussed.
