All details in this unit profile for ENEE12015 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student).
The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.
General Information

Overview

In this unit, you will model basic electrical power system components using simplified linear equivalent circuits, explain the relationship between power and energy, and calculate power and energy in electrical power networks. You will review electric and magnetic fields and explain their application in power transformers and generation. You will discuss generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy. You will apply problem-solving techniques in the analysis of balanced three-phase power circuits using per-unit methodology. You will discuss electrical distribution system components and configurations and apply appropriate mathematical tools to the analysis of power systems. You are expected to use appropriate electrical engineering language in context and to document the process of modelling and analysis. You will present the information, communicate, work and learn, both individually and in teams, in a professional manner. In this unit, you must complete compulsory practical activities. Refer to the Engineering Undergraduate Course Moodle site for proposed dates.

Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Residential Schools

This unit has a Compulsory Residential School for distance mode students and the details are:

Assessment Overview

Assessment Grading

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Policy for more details of interim results and final grades.

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Unit survey

Feedback

Students appreciated the lecturers for this unit were very knowledgeable and encouraged a positive learning atmosphere.

Recommendation

Continue this good practice.

Feedback from Unit survey

Feedback

Students appreciated that the Quizzes were good and helped maintain attention to the subject material.

Recommendation

Continue this good practice.

Feedback from Unit survey

Feedback

Students mentioned that their assessment feedback to be returned on time will support their learning.

Recommendation

In the next offering, the UC will provide the assessment feedback on time and resolve the issue.

Feedback from Unit survey

Feedback

Students mentioned that the simulation software to evaluate solar cell configurations took a bit longer time to navigate the software.

Recommendation

Provide more support and programming examples to assist the students better in the simulation assessment.
