Troubleshooting Electrical Circuits - Personal
This award winning basic electrical training
program created by Simutech teaches a proven systematic approach
to troubleshooting circuits, called
the "Five Step Troubleshooting
Approach." The process is explained using
electrical circuit simulation, animated graphics
and text. Once familiar with the troubleshooting
techniques you can work through a section that guides
you through this troubleshooting process on a simple
lighting circuit. You can then try to troubleshoot
30+ faults on the 6 lighting circuits. Some
are common faults when wiring lights, others
not so common. Here the time and dollars used to
solve the fault will be measured and evaluated.
The program also records all the steps performed
to solve the faults for later analysis of your troubleshooting
realistic simulation - The simulation
behaves as the real circuit would.
You can remove wires, operate any
controls, and the circuit will behave
appropriately. This is a

Who Can Benefit
Both college students and apprentices
find these programs
increase both their skills and confidence when troubleshooting
electrical circuits. Seasoned electrical and maintenance
personnel also benefit by refining their reasoning
process and increasing the effectiveness of their
troubleshooting skills, resulting in reduced downtime

This section describes a systematic approach to
troubleshooting called the Five Step Troubleshooting
Approach. It also contains a practice circuit that
allows you to practice the troubleshooting steps
on an electrical circuit.
This section guides you through the troubleshooting
process on a typical fault. Here you can practice
using the troubleshooting approach to answer a series
of questions and repair faults on the electrical
How the Circuits Work
This section describes how the lighting circuit
simulation works. Go to this section to see an animated

Test Your Skill
Here you will troubleshoot and repair faults on
the electrical circuit simulation. This program
will evaluate your results based on the time and
money spent to repair the fault. If your results
meet the criteria set by the program, the fault
will be marked complete. Otherwise you will have
to try it again.
Lighting Circuit Diagrams
Schematics and wiring diagrams for the lighting
circuit can be viewed on screen or printed out to
help you understand the circuit and eventually track
down problem areas to solve faults.
