Toolkit Description: 
This NET-122 Electrical course is from the RCNET Comprehensive Teaching Toolkit: Fundamentals, and is drawn from curriculum taught in the Nuclear Systems Technology program at Midlands Technical College. The program is designed to train nuclear systems technicians to work in nuclear power plants and covers fundamentals of nuclear power systems such as plant components, radiological protection, nuclear plant chemistry, and how to operate plant equipment. This RCNET Toolkit is organized in four courses: NET-122 Electrical, NET-210 Thermal Sciences, NET-225 Nuclear Physics, and NET-230 Chemistry. 

Toolkit Course Contents:
NET-122 Electrical is a study in basic electricity for nuclear power plant technicians. Topics include voltage, Ohm's Law, conductors, semiconductors, current resistance, Kirchoff's Voltage Law (KVL), Kirchoff's Current Law (KCL), basic circuit theory, as well as related topics. 

Materials available as part of the Teaching Toolkit include six .pdfs from the Department of Energy (DOE) Fundamentals Handbooks in both Electrical Science and Mathematics, and five PDFs of lessons and assessment questions on the topics of Basic Electrical Theory, DC Power, Electrical Breakers, Electrical Component Control, and Generator Behavior and Protection. 

The DOE Fundamentals Handbook .pdfs vary in length between 100-200 pages, and include an abstract, overview of the text, learning objectives, text material, and are divided into modules so that content and order may be modified by individual instructors. 

The lesson and assessment .pdfs are comprehensive documents, ranging from around 30-100 pages, and include lesson objectives, an introduction, general and more detailed descriptions, lesson materials, and self-assessment questions. 

For orientation purposes Electrical Breakers with Assessment Questions.pdf is included as a separate attachment and offers a sample of the type of material included in this course. 

Below is a list of the files contained within the .zip attachment. The size of each file is included in parenthesis.
