ENEE12015 - Electrical Power Engineering
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEE12015 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

In this unit you will model basic electrical power system components using simplified linear equivalent circuits, explain the relationship between power and energy, and calculate power and energy in electrical power networks. You will describe electric and magnetic fields and explain their generation and application in power transformers. You will discuss generation, transmission and distribution of electrical energy. You will apply problem solving techniques in the analysis of balanced three-phase power circuits using per-unit methodology. You will discuss electrical distribution system components and configurations, and apply appropriate mathematical tools to the analysis of power systems. You are expected to use appropriate electrical engineering language in context, and to document the process of modelling and analysis. You will present the information, and communicate, work and learn, both individually and in teams, in a professional manner. If you are studying in distance mode, you will be required to attend a compulsory residential school to assist your achievement of the Learning Outcomes for the unit.

Assessment Overview

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%). Consult the University’s Grades and Results Procedures for more details of interim results and final grades.

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 Source Recommendation
Students have pointed out the need to make slight improvements to the slides used towards the latter part of the term. Course survey These improvements will be made before the next offering.
Students have commended the tutorials Course survey This good practice will be continued with face-to-face tutors in each campus.
Students have appreciated the clear instructions, lectures, laboratory experiments and design of assessment items Course survey These good practices will be continued.
Students have highlighted the need for keeping students more engaged with the course Course survey This view is due to the fact that the Assessment items are distributed apart and not many assessment submissions are requested in the early part of the term. This will be changed by splitting the written assessment into two parts and making the students do a mid and end of term submission.
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Model electrical components and machines using simplified linear equivalent circuits.
  2. Explain the relationship between power and energy; calculate power and energy in electrical machines and networks.
  3. Describe electric and magnetic fields; explain their generation and application.
  4. Discuss generation, transmission and utilisation of electrical energy.
  5. Apply problem solving techniques in the analysis of balanced three-phase power network using per-unit methodology.
  6. Discuss electrical distribution system components and configurations.
  7. Apply appropriate laboratory techniques and software tools to the analysis of power systems.
  8. Use appropriate electrical engineering language in context.
  9. Document the process of modelling and analysis; present the information in a professional manner.
  10. Communicate, work and learn, both individually and in teams, in a professional manner.

The Learning Outcomes for this unit are linked to the Engineers Australia Stage 1 competencies.

2 Online Test

Assessment Title Online Quiz
Task Description

The On-line Quiz (with several Multiple Choice Questions - MCQs) will generally be in the form of problems that require simple calculations to find the correct answer. Students are expected to work individually.

To ensure continuous engagement of the students with the learning of this unit, the quiz has been separated to 4 parts and distributed over the 12 week term as indicated in the unit schedule. Each part of the quiz will cover the unit content covered in each quarter. More information on this will be provided through the unit Moodle site. Each part of the online quiz will be open on the Unit Moodle Website 5 clear working days prior to the respective due dates. The online quiz will randomly draw questions from a pre-designed question bank for each individual student. This will be a time limited assignment and more details will be made available for the students through Moodle site. Marks of all 4 parts of the quiz will be added and scaled to a score out of 20 to be added to the unit total.

Students are expected to submit the working for the questions through submission links provided in Moodle site for each of the quarterly quizzes.



Assessment Due Date Please see the weekly schedule for information about due dates for the 4 quizzes.
Return Date to Students Students will know their marks immediately after completing each quiz.
