General Information

Overview

In this unit you will model basic power system components and electrical machines using simplified linear equivalent circuits. You will explain the relationship between power and energy, and calculate power and energy in power networks and electrical machines. You will apply problem-solving techniques in the analysis of balanced three-phase power circuits using per-unit methodology. You will also investigate and compare the construction and operational characteristics of direct current (DC) and alternating current (AC) electrical machines. You will explain different drive system topologies for the electrical machines. You will explain electrical machine protection and control schemes. 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:

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

Feedback

Students appreciated how well and in detail, the lecturers and tutorials were explained, so most of the topics were very clear to them.

Recommendation

This good practice will be continued.

Feedback from Unit evaluation

Feedback

Students found the laboratory exercises were a great way to reinforce the content they were learning in class.

Recommendation

This good practice will be continued.

Feedback from Unit evaluation

Feedback

Students found the assignment challenging and they had difficulty locating the relevant information in the unit contents.

Recommendation

In future offerings, the assignment questions will be designed in such a way that they are more clear on how to locate the relevant information in the unit contents. More unit resources will be provided to students.

Feedback from Unit Coordinator

Feedback

Students struggled with the concept of AC circuits specifically calculating AC power and three-phase circuits.

Recommendation

In future offerings, extra resources will be provided to students to study and practice more in these areas.
