United States Navy Electricity & Electronics Training Series - N.E.E.T.S.

The Navy Electricity and Electronics Training Series (NEETS) was developed for use by personnel in many electrical and electronic related Navy ratings. Written by, and with the advice of, senior technicians in the various ratings that the information forms the basis for their rating.  This excellent series provides beginners with fundamental electrical and electronic concepts through self-study. The presentation of this series is not oriented to any specific discipline, but is divided into modules containing related information organized into traditional paths of instruction.

The series is designed to give small amounts of information that can be easily digested before advancing further into the more complex material. For a student just becoming acquainted with electricity or electronics, it is highly recommended that the modules be studied in their suggested sequence. While there is a listing of NEETS by module title, the following brief descriptions give a quick overview of how the individual modules flow together.

Enthalpy recommends that every Instrumentation & Controls Tech, Electrical Tech and DCS Technician download this series and retain them for reference.

Module 1 - Introduction to Matter, Energy and Direct Current, introduces the course with a short history of electricity and electronics and proceeds into the characteristics of matter, energy and direct current (DC). It also describes some of the general safety precautions and first-aid procedures that should be common knowledge for a person working in the field of electricity. Related safety hints are located throughout the rest of the series, as well.

Module 2 - Introduction to Alternating Current and Transformersis an introduction to alternating current (AC) and transformers, including basic AC theory and fundamentals of electromagnetism, inductance, capacitance, impedance and transformers.

Module 3 - Introduction to Circuit Protection, Control and Measurementencompasses circuit breakers, fuses and current limiters used in circuit protection, as well as the theory and use of meters as electrical measuring devices.
