A Programmed Review for Electrical Engineering by James H. Bentley

By James H. Bentley

The box of electric engineering is especially innovative-new items and new principles are continuĀ­ best friend being constructed. but these kinds of options are in accordance with the basic ideas of electric engineering: Ohm's legislations, Kirchhoff's legislation, suggestions keep an eye on, waveforms, capacitance, resistance, inductance, electrical energy, magnetism, present, voltage, strength, strength. it really is those simple basics that are verified for within the specialist Engineering exam (PE Exam). this article offers an equipped overview of the elemental electric engineering basics. it truly is an outgrowth of an electric engineering refresher direction taught by way of the writer to applicants getting ready for the pro Engineering Examination-a path which has enabled ratings of electric engineers in Minnesota and Wisconsin to effectively cross the PE examination. the fabric is consultant of the kind of questions showing within the PE checks ready by way of the nationwide Council of Engineering Examiners (NCEE) during the last twelve years. each one challenge within the textual content has been conscientiously chosen to demonstrate a particular notion. incorporated with each one challenge is no less than one answer. even though the suggestions were rigorously checked, either through the writer and via scholars, there's transformations of interpretation. additionally, every now and then definite assumptions may have to be made sooner than challenge answer, and because those to person, the ultimate resolution can also fluctuate. The assumptions will range from person writer has tried to maintain the necessities for assumptions and interpretation to a miniĀ­ mum.

If your answer is not correct, review pp. 17, 20, and 21. CAPACITORS The problems in this section illustrate the fundamental properties of capacitor energy and charge. PROBLEM 2-7. CAPACITOR ENERGY AND CHARGE The current waveform shown below approximates a current impulse. If this pulse is applied to a capacitor, determine: a. how much energy is applied to the capacitor; b. how much charge it accepts. -I f--- IOOnsec Solution: Equations required for solution are: 1 W=-CV 2 2 Q=CV V = -1 C IT 0 i dt (the integral represents the area under the current impulse curve) Solving for capacitor voltage: 1 V=-10- 7 1 10 - 7 0 4dt= 4 X 10-7 10-7 = 4 volts 37 A PROGRAMMED REVIEW FOR ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING Therefore, 10- 7 a.

707Vmax, for one complete cycle c. -----------------------~-- VViRMS + V~RMS + VhMS + ... + V~RMS where every term is at a different frequency (including dc). 27 A PROGRAMMED REVIEW FOR ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING Average Value The average value of any ac wave which is symmetrical about the zero axis is zero. However, when average value is applied to alternating quantities, it usually means the average of either the positive or negative loop of the wave. Since the average ordinate multiplied by the base is equal to the area under the curve, =-2 [T12 i dt average value T 0 where T is one cycle.

The comparison between a Norton equivalent circuit and a Thevenin equivalent circuit for a two-port network is illustrated below. b Norton Circuit Thevenin Circuit where AN is a constant-current source through short-circuited terminals. It=AN-VtG N AN It GN GN Vt = - - - Note that these two sources are equivalent only in the current, voltage, and power they deliver to the terminals a-b. They are not equivalent in the amount of internal power they consume within themselves. 19 A PROGRAMMED REVIEW FOR ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING VOLTAGE DIVISION AND SUPERPOSITION Two time-saving methods of analyzing circuits are illustrated below.
