ENEE12015 - Electrical Power Engineering

General Information

Unit Synopsis

In this course students will model electrical components and machines using simplified linear equivalent circuits, explain the relationship between power and energy, and calculate power and energy in electrical machines and networks. They will describe electric and magnetic fields and explain their generation and application. Students will discuss generation, transmission and utilisation of electrical energy. They will apply problem solving techniques in the analysis of balanced three-phase power circuits using per-unit methodology. They will discuss electrical distribution system components and configurations, and apply appropriate software tools to the analysis of power systems. Students are expected to use appropriate electrical engineering language in context, and to document the process of modelling and analysis. They will present the information, and communicate, work and learn, both individually and in teams, in a professional manner. Distance education (FLEX) students will be required to have access to a computer and to make frequent use of the Internet.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability.

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. Written Assessment 20%
2. Online Test 20%
3. Practical and Written Assessment 20%
4. 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%).

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.

Source: Unit survey.
Feedback
Students appreciated the timely and clear responses from the lecturer.
Recommendation
This good practice will be continued.
Action Taken
Maintained good practice and supported.
Source: Unit survey.
Feedback
Students appreciated the combination of recorded lectures and consultation session together with detailed worked examples provided.
Recommendation
This good practice will be continued.
Action Taken
Maintained good practice for students success.
Source: Unit survey
Feedback
Students believe that the Labvolt simulation based experiments are not very productive.
Recommendation
The school has decided to continue this practice of using Labvolt simulations to be in line with the reduced residential school requirements policy in each course. Distance students may be able to attend scheduled lab sessions in any of the five campuses where engineering is offered from 2021 if they wish.
Action Taken
Necessary supports are provided and students did well.
Source: Unit survey
Feedback
Students wanted more recent recordings for lectures and tutorials together with revision in uploaded content to eliminate repetition.
Recommendation
A complete revision of the uploaded content will be carried out.
Action Taken
At the last class, a complete revision was conducted and provided past exam questions with solutions.
Source: Unit survey
Feedback
Students appreciated the lecturers for this unit were very knowledgeable and encouraged a positive learning atmosphere.
Recommendation
Continue this good practice.

Feedback
Students mentioned that their assessment feedback to be returned on time will support their learning.
Recommendation
In the next offering, the UC will provide the assessment feedback on time and resolve the issue.
Action Taken
Nil.
Source: Unit survey
Feedback
Students mentioned that the simulation software to evaluate solar cell configurations took a bit longer time to navigate the software.
Recommendation
Provide more support and programming examples to assist the students better in the simulation assessment.
Action Taken
