All related to electricity l.jpg
All Related to Electricity

  • A fundamental property of matter, associated with atomic particles whose movements , free or controlled, lead to the development of fields of force and the generation of kinetic or potential energy.

    • Funk and Wagnall New International Dictionary of the English Language, Ferguson Publishing Company, Chicago, 1997, pp. 406

Quantifying electricity l.jpg
Quantifying Electricity

  • Current

    • Flow of positive electrical charge

    • Measured in Amperes

  • Voltage

    • “Pressure” that causes current to flow

    • Measured in volts

  • Impedance

    • Circuit opposition to current flow

    • Resistance in many circuits

    • Measured in ohms (W)

Basic electrical quantity relationships l.jpg
Basic Electrical Quantity Relationships

  • Current flow is directly proportional to the voltage and inversely proportional to the impedance.

  • Ohm’s Law

Ac vs d c l.jpg
AC vs. D C

  • AC – alternating current

    • Continuously varying in time

  • DC – direct current

    • Constant in long term (steady state)

Ac measurements l.jpg
AC Measurements

  • Zero average value

  • Use RMS to measure values

    • RMS – Root Mean Square

Electrical power l.jpg
Electrical Power

  • Power calculation needed for useful work

  • Instantaneous power

  • Average power

Where pf = power factor

Energy calculation l.jpg
Energy Calculation

  • Energy calculation relates to work done

  • Energy is power used over time

  • Equation for constant power

Comparison of energy users l.jpg

Single residence energy use calculation l.jpg
Single Residence Energy Use Calculation

  • Sum last digits of your groups ZIDs

  • Use last digit of sum to choose appliance

  • Estimate hours of use in a year

  • Estimate total energy

Us average residential energy used l.jpg
US Average Residential Energy Used

  • Total residential electrical energy use 2005 = 1,201,147,845 kWh

  • Number of households 2001 = 107 Million

    Source: http://www.eia.doe.gov/emeu/reps/appli/us_table.html

  • Energy per household = 11.2 MWh

Appliance design l.jpg
Appliance Design

  • Find a consumer need

  • Determine technical specifications

  • Develop system and components

  • Evaluate design

  • Repeat as necessary

Example electric glove l.jpg
Example:Electric Glove

  • Developing an electrically heated glove

  • Uses resistive heat

  • Nominal heat 1 W

  • Not to exceed 2 W

  • Should last 2 hours.
