DC/AC Student Guide: Amp Meter System and Design Testing Lab


This 4-page lab activity is provided by Maricopa Advanced Technology Education Center (MATEC) and covers the principles and laws of parallel circuits. The primary purpose of the lab is to design, construct, and test a multi-range ammeter. In the process of doing this lab activity, the principles of Ohm's Law, Watt's Law, Kirchhoff's Parallel Circuit Laws, and the basic operation of an analog and a digital meter movement will be reviewed and emphasized. The interrelationships between various parts will be highlighted and a basic amperage measurement system will be constructed and tested.

This lab activity includes the following sections: Purpose, Systems Rationale, System Concepts, Student Learning Outcomes, Prerequisite Knowledge and Skills, Learning Objectives, Process Overview, Lab Preparation, Introduction, Performance, and more.
