General Information

Overview

In this project-based learning unit, you will analyse and design systems and components that convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. You will investigate the construction and operational characteristics of various DC and AC electrical machines, analyse machine protection and control schemes and select and specify machines for particular applications. Furthermore, you will learn about components and materials for electrical machines, and use power electronics to optimise the performance of energy conversion. You are expected to learn and work individually and in teams to complete projects, to develop interpersonal and technical communication skills and to prepare professional documentation, including problem solutions, electrical designs and project reports. Distance education students are required to have access to a computer, to make frequent use of the Internet. In this unit, you must complete compulsory practical activities. Refer to the Engineering Undergraduate Course Moodle site for proposed dates.

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.

Team Project

Task Description

This compulsory assessment item is the project component of the unit. Students carry out this in teams. Complete details of an Electrical machines and drive system design project is provided in the unit Moodle site at the beginning of the term. Students carry out the project in teams through out the term and submit a professional team report. The project is carried out by the teams like a team of electrical engineering consulting engineers. It requires the student teams to submit an expression of interest before a specified deadline communicated to the students through Moodle at the early stages of the term. Afterwards, the teams are supposed to attend a debriefing meeting in the mid-way of the project execution. Final reports that must be prepared as one submission per team are expected before the deadline specified below.

Academic Integrity Statement

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.

Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.

When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.

Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.

As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.

What is a breach of academic integrity?

A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.

Why is academic integrity important?

A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.

Where can I get assistance?

For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.

What can you do to act with integrity?
