ENEE12014 - Electrical Circuit Analysis

General Information

Unit Synopsis

This unit introduces you to modelling electrical components and systems. You will apply theorems and network reduction techniques to DC and AC circuits, and apply problem-solving techniques in the analysis of AC and DC circuits. You will also cover the concepts of transient response and two-port network theorems. You will apply laboratory techniques and appropriate software tools to the analysis of electrical circuits. Use fundamental electrical engineering language in context and document the process of modelling and analysis. You will present information, communicate, work and learn in a professional manner. Online students must complete practical activities by attending a compulsory residential school.

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).

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 Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Online Quiz(zes) 15%
2. In-class Test(s) 25%
3. Practical and Written Assessment 10%
4. Practical and Written Assessment 10%
5. Examination 40%

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%).
