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. See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).

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).
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.
|1. Written Assessment||20%|
|2. Online Test||20%|
|3. Practical and Written Assessment||20%|
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%).
