ENEE13021 - Power System Analysis and Design
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEE13021 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student). The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction included in the profile.

Overview

Students should be able to work in teams to model, analyse and investigate design and operation options for electrical power networks to meet community service requirements. On satisfactory completion students should be able to analyse steady state power system performance, and articulate the process of updating and maintaining power network assets in order that they meet safety, reliability, availability, security, and quality requirements for both present and future society needs. Distance Education (Flex) students will be required to attend a residential school to promote development of unit learning outcomes.

Assessment Overview

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Practical and Written Assessment 15%
2. Written Assessment 30%
3. Practical and Written Assessment 15%
4. Written Assessment Pass/Fail
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%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

Task Description

This assessment item will address all learning outcomes of this unit and will contribute to 30% of the final marks of the unit.

Students will be formed into teams of no more than 3 members for this assessment item.

Each team will be assigned a power system modeling and simulation exercise related to power systems stability, fault calculations, load flow etc.

The project will be based on the university edition of PSSE software. PSSE is an industry standard package used throughout Australia and overseas in power utilities. The free university edition is a version of it specifically for the use of students in university units. In this unit you will achieve a basic competency in the use of PSSE which will be extremely valuable should you pursue a career in the power industry. Video tutorials on the use of PSSE and instructions on installation are available on Moodle.

5 Written Assessment

Assessment Title Workbook
Task Description

The Workbook provides a record or detailed diary of each individual student’s study and learning activities throughout the unit and should include all individual work

carried out. Preparation of a Workbook should be understood as good study technique. It also provides evidence that students have adequately studied the whole unit and

achieved unit learning outcomes.

The Workbook can be handwritten or kept as a text file. Each entry should be

dated, pages should be numbered and show your name or initials. It should be prepared week by week, not at the end of term. Show rough attempts at problems including

failures and fixes, brainstorming, draft notes and developing ideas. In the Workbook students should record:

  • study notes taken while studying textbooks and unit resources
  • study notes taken during lectures and/or workshops
  • personal study summaries of key concepts
  • notes, sketches/ drawings or mind-maps
  • planning and preparation for team/project tasks
  • planning and preparation for online unit discussions
  • workbook practice tasks you are asked to complete in the Unit Website
  • initial attempts at set tutorial tasks
  • initial attempts at assignment tasks
  • preparation for class tests or exams.

Assessment Criteria

The students are expected to compile their workbooks according to the guidelines given in the above description. Lecturer will go through the submitted workbooks and decide the amount of work that has been compiled by each student reflects sufficient time involvement of each student into the activities of this unit and also if each student has gained sufficient understanding of the content of this unit. At the same time he will focus on assessing whether the compiled activities in workbook reflects achieving all the learning outcomes of this unit. Those students who seem to have achieved these objectives will be given a pass grade for this assessment item while the others may have to complete some supplementary assessment items specified by the lecturer.
