In this scenario, learners take the role of a delivery driver who must find a new travel route after the Interstate is closed to trucks. “Drivers” listen to traffic reports and write directions for a new route. This activity has audio content.
In this animated object, learners examine the signals produced at the N.O. (normally open) and N.C. (normally closed) outputs of sourcing and sinking four-wire sensors. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Op Amp Fundamentals: The Transconductance Amplifier
Students read an introduction to the transconductance amplifier. They also view formulas for voltage-to-current conversion, closed-loop input, and output impedance. An example of how R1 controls the conversion factor is given.
Learners study animations showing the integral function of a closed-loop control system and the difference between the two types of integral controller settings, reset rate and reset time. A short quiz completes the activity.
