In this animated learning object, students view the operation of an oscilloscope that is used to measure AC voltages. A brief quiz completes the activity.
The student studies the method to calculate complex power where the Vrms of a circuit is multiplied by the complex conjugate of the total circuit current. Several examples are given, along with the power triangle.
Learners follow the steps for reducing all of the elements of a complex circuit to a single current source and a single source resistance to create a simple circuit. Several examples are given for dc circuits. The conversion between Thevenin and Norton is also presented.
