Introduction to Marine AC Electrical Systems
ATTEND IN-PERSON OR ONLINE
This class is being offered in a hybrid format, with participants being able to choose in advance if they will attend in person or online via Zoom.

THE COURSE
This class compliments the DC version and covers all of the aspects of the boats AC (shore
power/generator/inverter) electrical system. A tutorial section teaches the terminology and meaning of concepts such as voltage, current, power, split phase, transformers, etc. The theory and usage of circuit breakers, fuses, instrumentation, and the importance of wire sizing are covered. The sometimes confusing topic of Ground Fault Circuit Interrupters is explained along with basic tips on resolving problems with these legally mandated devices. Corrosion protection (aka galvanic isolation) is closely related to the AC system and the concepts are explored including tips to maximize zinc life. This class is 3-4 hours long and has no prerequisites. This class is strongly recommended as a prerequisite for Troubleshooting and Intermediate Electrical courses.

A TRADITION
For nearly 15 years, the Olympia Yacht Club has been conducting classes for our members and other local boaters. The 2024 series of electrical-related courses has now been scheduled, and will be conducted in person at the OYC clubhouse in Olympia. One of our foundational principles is to encourage the science of good seamanship and navigation and thus we are opening these classes to any boater wishing to learn more on these topics.

OUR INSTRUCTOR
The developer and instructor of these classes is past commodore Jerry Budelman, whose qualifications include retired Intel executive, adjunct professor of engineering, holder of over 20 patents and a lifetime instructor and inventor. He loves to teach with an interactive and participatory style.

REGISTER EARLY
Space is limited, so register early! We ask that you register at least one week before the class if possible. Late registrations will be accepted - space allowing - but late registrants may not receive a copy of the course material. A PDF file is also available.

HOSPITALITY
Coffee, tea and other basic refreshments will be provided.
