Understanding Electrical Systems - Sprayberry Academy of Radio
« on: October 12, 2017, 06:17:25 PM »
If your trying to learn electrical systems for OPE (outdoor power equipment), motorcycle or car and truck service and repair, and your having trouble understanding a topic, sometimes it helps to read or hear the topic from another source. I've included links to lessons 1, 2, 3, and 6 found in a 1940's radio repair course by Sprayberry Academy of Radio. These lessons go over the fundamental concepts of electrical theory, which a service technician needs to know to understand how electrical systems on motorcycles, cars, trucks and OPE function and operate. I'm not saying these courses are a substitute for an electrical course in your field of study, but they might help you better understand a difficult topic. Whether your repairing old radios, televisions or fixing motorcycles, the fundamental concepts of electrical theory will be the same. This course was written before the transistor was invented, so it doesn't cover semi conductors or computers. I will include links to all 35 lessons (complete course) in the members only section of this forum. These course files are in pdf format, so you need a pdf reader to view them.
