(OSHA) certification, electrical and on-the-job safety, tool and
material familiarization, plan design and specifications, wire
diagramming, and the use of applicable National Electrical
Code (NEC) standards.
Co-requisite: ELEC 117

ELEC 126 (3 credits)
Electricity II: Systems Design

This course is an advanced study in commercial and
industrial electrical systems design and installation. Sizing
various raceway systems for commercial and industrial
applications, custom electrical enclosure sizing, and polyphase distribution systems are reviewed in detail. Industrial
process and motor control material, circuit planning and
design, and AC motors sizing and wiring methods introduce
students to advanced electrical control systems.
Prerequisites: ELEC 113, ELEC 117, and ELEC 120
Co-requisite: 168

48 * Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology

ELEC 157 (1 credit)
Electricity II: Theory and Analysis Lab

Laboratory assignments enable students to analyze AC
waveforms and AC circuit characteristics by connecting the
appropriate electrical components and utilizing electrical
measuring instruments to take specific measurements.
Computer software is used to enable advanced circuit
analysis and troubleshooting.
Prerequisites: ELEC 113, ELEC 117, and ELEC 120
Co-requisite: ELEC 162

ELEC 162 (4 credit)
Electricity II: Theory and Analysis

This course presents advanced study in the principles, laws,
and formulas relating to alternating current (AC) applications
in electricity. Topics include AC waveform analysis,
electromagnetism, power generation and distribution,
vector diagrams, power factor and correction, single-phase
and poly-phase systems, and motors.
Prerequisites: ELEC 113, ELEC 117, and ELEC 120
Co-requisite: ELEC 157

ELEC 168 (4 credit)
Electricity II: Practicum

This course is a hands-on approach to commercial and
industrial electrical systems design and installation.
Assignments include schematic and ladder diagramming,
commercial wiring and raceway systems installations,
process control wiring, troubleshooting single-phase and
poly-phase distribution systems, motors, and motor control
circuits.
Prerequisites: ELEC 113, ELEC 117, and ELEC 120
Co-requisite: ELEC 126

ELEC 206 (4 credits)
Industrial Electricity

Theory is covered and then complemented by utilizing
test benches to connect single transformers into 3-phase
banks for wye and delta systems. Additional topics include
determining size and bend race-ways for industrial loads, as
well as becoming familiar with various hazardous areas and
their requirements.
Prerequisites: ELEC 156 and ELEC 161

ELEC 211 (4 credits)
Industrial Electronics

Theory and practice in basic electronic components, and
single- and poly-phase rectifier circuits, including power
supplies. Use of thyristors to control the average load current
through machinery in industry by changing conducting
time. Basics of operational amplifiers and analog and digital
transducers are covered.
Prerequisites: ELEC 126, ELEC 162, and ELEC 168
