Basic Electrical Engineering 15ELE15 MODULE – 1 1. D. C. Circuits Ohm’s Law: the current flowing through the electric the electric circuit is directly proportional to the potential difference across the circuit and inversely proportional to the resistance of the circuit, provided the temperature remains constant. The limitations of the Ohm’s law are, 1) It is not applicable to the nonlinear devices such as diodes, zener diodes, voltage regulators ect. 2) It does not hold good for non-metallic conductors such as silicon carbide. The law for such conductors is given by, V = K Im where k, m are constants. (I) Current is what flows on a wire or conductor like water flowing down a river. Current flows from negative to positive on the surface of a conductor. Current is measured in (A) amperes or amps. (E) Voltage Ohm's Law defines the relationships between (P) power, (E) voltage, (I) current, and (R) resistance. One ohm is the resistance value through which one volt will maintain a current of one ampere is the difference in electrical potential between two points in a circuit. It's the push or pressure behind current flow through a circuit, and is measured in (V) volts. (R) Resistance determines how much current will flow through a component. Resistors are used to control voltage and current levels. A very high resistance allows a small amount of current to flow. A very low resistance allows a large amount of current to flow. Resistance is measured in ohms. Department of EEE, SJBIT Page 5

Basic Electrical Engineering 15ELE15 To make a current flow through a resistance there must be a voltage across that resistance. Ohm's Law shows the relationship between the voltage (V), current (I) and resistance (R). It can be written in three ways: V V=I×R or I= V or R where: V = voltage in volts (V) R= I or: V = voltage in volts (V) I = current in amps (A) I = current in milliamps (mA) R = resistance in ohms ( ) R = resistance in kilohms (k ) Department of EEE, SJBIT Page 6
