Description

The course Marine Electronics - Circuits and Components relates the branch of physics concerned with the design of electronic circuits alongside the application of different electronic components to marine electronics. The relationship between the science of physics and the technology of marine electronics has facilitated improved designs for ships and vessels. On board marine technology facilitated by electronic components include movement detection instruments like Chartplotter, compass, sonar (or fishfinder), and GPS among many others. These developments all have electric circuit connections and components whose workings, principles, and applications are discussed in this free online course from Alison. The course illustrates different circuit conditions that give rise to limitations in applying multiple electronic components as well as ways to mitigate these limitations. Complex electronic components are well illustrated in this free online course for an easy understanding of complex electronic components by the learner, as well as the illustrations of potential dividers and voltage dividers that are well explained. Effects of circuit concepts that are necessary for marine electronics are also explained in this course, including the effect of resistances arranged in both series and parallel connections.

Marine Electronics - Circuits and Components is a free online course that offers an understanding of the workings, principles, and applications of electric circuits and their components. The course also offers a basic understanding of electricity laws along with aspects of electronic circuit elements including capacitors and inductors. Semiconductors, thyristors (SCR), Zener diodes, rectifiers, and filters are also discussed in this free online course from Alison. The course Marine Electronics - Circuits and Components offers important lessons on aspects of electrostatic-sensitive components like electrostatic discharge (ESD), as well as the identification of cables and their usage. The course also helps learners identify different electronic components as well as distinguish each one based on their workings and uses. The different types of series and parallel circuits are also well explained in this free online course. Upon successful completion of this free online course, the concepts surrounding electric circuits and components would be understood. These concepts would also be related to different laws and their applications in applicable circuits.


This free online course from Alison aims to equip learners with an outlook of electronics consisting of basic electricity laws involving resistance, e.g Kirchoff’s Laws, all of which are applied by mariners and people involved in maritime. This course will take you through an analogy of materials, resistance, and resistivity by studying the fundamental principles of how resistances work. The course will also take you through different electric circuits observing how different factors affect them. The course will be of significant interest to students, researchers, marine engineers, and anyone seeking to learn about marine electronics and its various mechanisms. Furthermore, our lives are increasingly dependent on logistics of products from our home countries in the form of exports and foreign shores in the form of imports; both a form of utilizing complex maritime transport technologies supported by electronics. For that important reason, the knowledge of electric resistance and batteries alongside the aspects they cover is very important. So, register for this free online course from Alison today to improve your understanding of circuits and components in marine electronics, their workings, as well as applications in relevant marine systems.
