electrical systems introduction
Electrical Systems Introduction
  • Electrical Systems Introduction
  • Electrical Systems
  • Electrical System Commonalities
  • Voltage
  • Current
  • Current: DC Power
  • Current: AC Power
  • Resistance and Impedance
  • Power
  • Ohm's Law
electrical system commonalities
Electrical System Commonalities
  • Different countries have different electrical systems. There is commonality in:
    • The basics of electrical power and distribution
    • The characteristics of electricity
    • How an electrical circuit works
    • How electricity is managed in an AV system
    • Electrical safety issues
voltage
Voltage
  • Measure of electrical pressure
  • Potential force
  • Difference of potential
  • Symbol: V (or E)
current
Current
  • Flow of electrons
  • Symbol: I (or A)
  • Measured in amperes

Direct Current Alternating Current

current dc power
Current: DC Power
  • Facts about DC power:
    • Charge stays at a constant flow
      • does not reverse direction
    • Can be positive or negative
    • Computer signals, batteries, and power supplies usually use DC power.
current ac power
Current: AC Power
  • Voltage
    • USA: 120 volts
    • Europe: 230 volts
  • Signal alternates
  • Current travels in cycles
  • Frequency in Hertz (Hz) or cps
  • Current returns to source
resistance and impedance
Resistance and Impedance
  • Resistance (R): Opposition to the flow of electrons
    • Measured in ohms (Ω)
    • Resistance in a conductor
  • Impedance (Z): Resistance and reactance in an AC circuit
    • Measured in ohms (Ω)
power
Power

Power is the rate at which work is done.

  • Symbol: P
  • Measured in watts (W)
  • One watt expended when one amp of direct current flows through a resistance of one ohm
ohm s law
Ohm's Law
  • Current proportional to voltage
    • Voltage increase = current increase if resistance stays the same
  • Current and resistance inversely proportional
    • Resistance increase = current decrease if voltage stays the same
ohm s law formula
Ohm’s Law Formula
