About the Product

Delmar Online Training Simulation: Electricity for HVAC is an immersive simulation that offers HVAC students the opportunity to learn basic electrical concepts as they apply to HVAC. Delmar Online Training Simulation: Electricity for HVAC provides the user with access to interactive wiring diagrams that can be manipulated providing better understanding of electrical concepts. Tutorial mode is available within the interactive wiring diagram section offering the user the opportunity to review and develop the appropriate sequence of steps. Users are scored on their ability to answer questions following wiring diagram interaction. In the last section, users will enter a 3D, immersive simulation that lets them put in practice the electrical theories that they have learned.


  • Electricity for HVAC includes learning modules that cover basic concepts of electricity as they apply to HVAC. Students have access to interactive tutorials that visually demonstrate/show basic electrical concepts in action for better understanding.

  • Student access to more than 20 interactive wiring diagrams. Interactive wiring diagrams include animations that indicate where voltage and current runs through the diagram.

  • Students can manipulate the diagrams to learn what the different components do- and what causes a system to react the way that it does.

  • The Simulation offers students anytime, anywhere access to practice.

  • Questions/Knowledge checks are included within every wiring diagram, requiring students to manipulate the diagram in order to answer the question.

  • Questions are beyond what is offered within the Smith, Electricity for Refrigeration, Heating and Air Conditioning text. Correct answers and rationales are included within the Simulation to help the student better master and understand content.

  • Students have the opportunity to receive additional advice and the proper sequence of operations within the interactive wiring diagrams, helping to build troubleshooting and critical thinking skills.

  • The interactive wire diagrams require users to use a virtual multi-meter to measure and make diagnostic decisions based on results.

  • Students/users are able to zoom in and out of the wiring diagrams, allowing a clearer picture/view of the components of the wiring diagram.

  • Offers students the opportunity to practice their troubleshooting skills in a safe environment and demonstrate (and implement) their electrical theory knowledge.

  • Gives instructors quick access and visibility into student performance and understanding.
