Power System Protection
All details in this unit profile for ENEE13016 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 analyse and design devices and schemes to protect electrical power apparatus and systems. You will explain the philosophy, principles, concepts and practices, the codes, standards and refer to manuals that guide the design and operation of protection schemes. You will also analyse protection schemes, solve protection problems and correct faults. You will identify requirements, analyse and design protection for power system networks and for apparatus in electrical power systems. You will develop fluency in the technical language of power systems protection and develop the professional skills needed to communicate, learn and work alone and collaboratively to solve problems and document the solution process.

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).

Class and Assessment Overview

Recommended Student Time Commitment

Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

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 Have Your Say

Feedback

Only the lack of face to face interaction and missing substation visit but that was out of our control this year.

Recommendation

The substation visit will be introduced, health directives permitting.

Unit Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Analyse and design power system protection schemes to solve operational problems and correct faults
  2. Apply codes, standards, guidelines in manuals to design power system protection schemes for given operational scenarios
  3. Design protection schemes for power networks, including determining the type and nature of suitable protection for apparatus that needs protection
  4. Document solutions effectively using electrical power systems protection terminology, symbols and diagrams to present the information in a professional manner
  5. Communicate, work and learn both individually and in teams, in a professional manner.
