Magnetism and Electromagnetism Explained

Learning objectives

  • Describe the interactions between current, magnetic fields and stationary or moving conductors
  • Describe the right-hand rules for conductors, electromagnets, and generators
  • Describe the left-hand rule for motors

Course overview

Many common electrical devices in industrial facilities are designed using magnetic principles. Understanding magnetism and electromagnetism is important to operating these devices, such as AC and DC motors.

The Magnetism and Electromagnetism training course describes the basic principles of magnetism. It describes the relationship between electricity and magnetism and how it's affected by generators and motors. This course also discusses electromagnets. Magnetism and Electromagnetism explained is part of the Direct Current (DC) training series.
