Electricity is the indispensable power source for water and wastewater systems. Participants in this course will learn how electricity is produced and distributed, and how to apply fundamental electrical, AC and DC theory to the operation of water and wastewater facility operation and control.
Students will build a working series and parallel circuit, including the addition of relay logic. Students will identify and use test meters, learn how to trace electrical systems by identifying and interpreting electrical symbols, and will pick up vital safety and troubleshooting information they can apply immediately.
This is a hands-on workshop, enrollment is limited.
