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


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.

Offerings For Term 2 - 2023

Mixed Mode

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

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 evaluation.


Students appreciated the lecturer for this unit was very cooperative, knowledgeable, and encouraged with a positive learning atmosphere.


Continue this good practice for student success.

Feedback from Unit evaluation.


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


Continue this good practice.

Feedback from Unit evaluation and individual discussion.


Students mentioned that the simulation software (MATLAB) to evaluate solar cell configurations took a bit longer time to understand the software. Requested a tutorial on this software.


Should provide a tutorial on this software (MATLAB).
