Learners solve word problems involving basic mechanical principles such as torque, horsepower, work, and power. Students who have problems with a particular word problem may try it again with a different set of numbers.
Using Blueprints to Troubleshoot a Defective Water Pump
In this simulation activity, an electrician troubleshoots a defective water pump that will not start. To find the problem, the learner selects the appropriate blueprints that must be referred to while performing the troubleshooting steps. Then safety protocols will be followed, such as making lockout-tag out installations and donning PPE items before taking measurements with a multimeter to locate the faulty component.
