Electrical Systems and Control

Electrical Systems and Control focuses on basic electrical control components, wiring and motor starting methods. In addition to examining limit switches, sensors (inductive and capacitive), photo sensors and ultrasonic sensors, you will also learn the basics of PLC operation (PLC bases and PLC devices and programming), numbering system, terminology and programming. Lastly, this Electrical Systems and Control course will offer an introduction to DC/AC drives. This course will give you the know-how to: use electrical control components in control circuits; design basic two and three-wire electrical control; interpret and understand electrical schematic diagrams; understand electrical power systems, control circuits and motor starters; use PLC based control and programming concept and applications; identify AC drives and their applications. This course is part of the Electrical Power Systems program at Centennial College
