Conductors temperature effects on conductors and insulators l.jpg

Conductors,Temperature Effects on Conductors, and Insulators


Conductors l.jpg

Conductors

  • A Conductor is a material that has very little resistance and permits electrons to move through it easily.

  • Conductors include wire, cable, and cord.

  • Electrical circuits and components are connected using Conductors.


Conductors4 l.jpg

Conductors

  • Conductor material include copper, aluminum, copper-clad aluminum, steel, and bronze.

  • Copper and Aluminum are the most commonly used materials.

  • Copper is most common.

  • Copper is preferred because it has a lower resistance than aluminum for any given wire size.


Conductors5 l.jpg

Conductors

  • Conductance is the measure of how good a conductor is at carrying current.

  • Conductance is inversely proportional to resistance.

  • A good Conductor has a high Conductance value and a very small resistance to current flow.


Conductors6 l.jpg

Conductors

  • Conductors are not meant to offer any resistance or opposition to current flow.

  • Conductance is the measure of how good a Conductor is, and even the best Conductors have some value of resistance.

  • We can calculate a Conductor’s resistance with the formula R=V/I


Temperature effects on conductors l.jpg

Temperature Effects on Conductors

  • When heat is applied to a Conductor, the atoms within the Conductor convert this thermal energy into mechanical energy or movement.

  • These random moving atoms cause collisions between the directed electrons (current flow) and the adjacent atoms, resulting in an opposition to current flow (resistance).


Temperature effects on conductors8 l.jpg

Temperature Effects on Conductors

  • This means the greater the heat applied to the conductor (more current flowing), the greater the atom movement, causing more collisions of atoms to occur and consequently, greater conductor resistance.

  • More current more heat. More heat more resistance.


Insulators l.jpg

Insulators

  • Insulators is any material that offers high resistance or opposition to current flow.

  • Remember Conductors permit the easy flow of current.

  • Insulators can, with sufficient pressure or voltage applied across them, “break down” and conduct current.


Resistors resistance and resistivity l.jpg

Resistors, Resistance, and Resistivity


Resistivity l.jpg

Resistivity

  • Resistivity is the resistance (in Ohms) that a certain length of conductive material (in feet) will offer to the flow of current.


Resistors resistance and resistivity12 l.jpg

Resistors, Resistance, and Resistivity

  • Electrical Resistance is opposition to the flow of electrons through any material.

  • A Resistor is a device that limits the current flowing in an electronic circuit.

  • Resistors are classified by their resistance value (in Ώ) and their power dissipation (in Watts).


Resistors resistance and resistivity13 l.jpg

Resistors, Resistance, and Resistivity

  • Resistors are used for dividing voltage, reducing voltage, developing heat, and limiting current.

  • Resistors may be fixed, variable or tapped.

  • A Fixed Resistor is a Resistor with a set value, such as 100Ώ.


Resistors resistance and resistivity14 l.jpg

Resistors, Resistance, and Resistivity

  • A Variable (adjustable) Resistor is a resistor with a set range of values, such as 0Ώ to 1000Ώ.

  • A Tapped Resistor is a resistor that contains fixed tap points of different resistances.

  • A Thermistor is a device that changes resistance with a change in temperature. Thermistors are semiconductor devices.


Resistors resistance and resistivity15 l.jpg

Resistors, Resistance, and Resistivity

  • There are two types of Thermistors – positive temperature coefficient (PTC) and the negative temperature coefficient (NTC).

  • A PTC Thermistor has an increasing resistance value with an increase in temperature.

  • A NTC Thermistor has a decreasing resistance value with an increasing in temperature. The NTC Thermistor is the most common type.

Capacitance, Capacitors, Diodes and Transistors


Capacitance capacitors and diodes l.jpg

Capacitance, Capacitors, and Diodes

  • Capacitance is the ability to store energy in the form of an electrical charge.

  • Capacitance is the property of an electric device that permits the storage of electrically separated charges when potential differences exist between the conductors.


Capacitance capacitors and diodes19 l.jpg

Capacitance, Capacitors, and Diodes

  • A Capacitor is an electric device designed to store electrical energy by means of an electrostatic field.

  • Capacitors are used as filters in AC circuits to block DC voltages in electronic circuits, and to improve torque in motors.


Capacitance capacitors and diodes20 l.jpg

Capacitance, Capacitors, and Diodes

  • Capacitors include fixed, variable, and electrolytic polarized.

  • Once Capacitors are discharged, the must be recharged.

  • Tolerance of some Capacitors is indicated by a letter code following the number.


Capacitance capacitors and diodes21 l.jpg

Capacitance, Capacitors, and Diodes

  • A Diode is a semiconductor device that offers very high opposition to current flow in one direction and very low opposition to current flow in in the opposite direction.

  • Diodes are also know as Rectifiers because they change AC into pulsating DC.


Capacitance capacitors and diodes22 l.jpg

Capacitance, Capacitors, and Diodes

  • Diodes are rated according to their type, voltage, and current capacity.

  • The most common types of diodes include zener, tunnel, photoconductive, and light-emitting diodes (LED).

  • Diodes are a available in current ranges of a few milliamps to over 1000A.


Capacitance capacitors and diodes23 l.jpg

Capacitance, Capacitors, and Diodes

  • A Zener Diode is a silicon PN junction that differs from a standard diode in that it operates in the reverse breakdown region.

  • A Zener Diode operates as a voltage regulator in an electronic circuit.

  • Zener Diodes allow varying amounts of reverse current flow through them and continue to maintain a relatively constant voltage drop when reverse biased.


Capacitance capacitors and diodes24 l.jpg

Capacitance, Capacitors, and Diodes

  • A Tunnel Diode is a diode designed so that the current flowing through the diode decreases with an increase in applied voltage for a specific range of forward voltage.

  • Tunnel Diodes operate as an amplifier or oscillator in an electronic circuit.

  • Tunnel Diodes exhibit negative resistance when operated within a specific range of forward voltage.

  • Tunnel Diodes are used in logic circuits and for level sensing.

  • A Photoconductive Diode is a diode that conducts current when energized by light.

  • Photoconductive Diodes decrease resistance as light increases.

  • A Light Emitting Diode (LED) is a Diode that emits light when forward current is applied.

Transistors l.jpg

Transistors

  • A Transistor is a three-terminal device that controls current through the device depending on the amount of voltage applied to the base.

  • Transistors are made of semiconductor material.

  • Transistors are used to start and stop (switch) current flow or to increase (amplify) current flow in DC circuits.


Transistors29 l.jpg

Transistors

  • Transistors can be NPN or PNP, Unijunction, and Junction Field-Effect Transistors (JFET), and Phototransistors.

  • An NPN Transistor is a transistor that is formed by sandwiching a thin layer of P-type material between two layers of N-type material.


Transistors30 l.jpg

Transistors

  • An PNP Transistor is a transistor that is formed by sandwiching a thin layer of N-type material between two layers of P-type material.

  • NPN and PNP transistors function as a switch. They start, stop, or increase the flow of current in a DC circuit.

  • Transistors also function as amplifiers in allowing a very small current to control a much larger current.

Transistors

  • A Unijunction Transistor (UJT) is a transistor consisting of N-type material with a region of P-type material doped within the N-type material.

  • A UJT is used in timer circuits.

  • A Junction Field-Effect Transistor (JFET) is a device in which output current is controlled by the voltage on the input.

Digital Logic Gates

  • A Digital Logic Gate is a circuit that performs a special logic operation such as AND, OR, NOT, NOR, NAND, and exclusive OR.

  • Digital Logic Gates are used in most electronic devices.

  • Digital circuits operation on binary signals. Binary signals have two states – the signal is high (1) or low (0) … on (1) or off (0).
