The intent of this document is to provide an example of how a subject matter expert might teach AC Generators, Transformers, and AC Motors. This approach is what Idaho State University College of Technology is using to teach its Energy Systems Instrumentation and Control curriculum for AC Generators, Transformers, and AC Motors. The approach is based on a Systematic Approach to Training where training is developed and delivered in a two step process. This document depicts the two step approach with knowledge objectives being presented first followed by skill objectives. Step one teaches essential knowledge objectives to prepare students for the application of that knowledge. Step two is to let students apply what they have learned with actual hands on experiences in a controlled laboratory setting.
This module covers fundamental aspects of AC Generators, Transformers, and AC Motors as essential knowledge necessary to perform work safely according to national and local standards on or around electrical power sources that are associated with motors and controls. Students will be taught the fundamentals of AC Generators, Transformers, and AC Motors using classroom instruction, demonstration, and laboratory exercises to demonstrate knowledge and skill mastery of AC Generators, Transformers, and AC Motors.
