Electric Circuit Analysis/Circuit Analysis - Lab1

Home Laboratory Exercise

The Grand Idea:

Home Laboratory Exercises should be simple and safe enough for students to perform on their own. At the same time they should help the student to understand the underlying concepts of Electrical Engineering.

This means that HLEs can only be confined to low voltage experiments for safety purposes. Students are seriously discouraged from tampering with the mains at home. This could be fatal!

Current Situation:

At this point in time, Wikiversity is not able to offer HLEs as this feature is still very experimental. There are many other issues to be considered before embarking on this project.

Into The Near Future:

It is the sincere hope and wish of active participants in this course - and many other similar courses - that Wikiversity may soon host a Remote Laboratory Server where students can perform experiments in a virtual laboratory in real time.

In the mean time, here is what you can do to further your knowledge in electrical engineering.

Part:1 Start-up Guide

Here are a few things you can do to further your self in Electrical Engineering:

  1. Subscribe to an electronics/electrical engineering hobby magazine (or you could get one at your local library)
  2. Use the Internet (there are many blogs dedicated to Electrical Engineering and related hobbies)
  3. Get yourself a Beginners Electronics Kit, which may include the following:
    • Electronics Tool Box.
    • Digital Multimeter.
    • Soldering Iron.
    • Soldering wire.
    • A batch of Resistors, Diodes, etc...
  4. Take an active interest in your surroundings (look around and try to identify electrical installations in your area).
