ENEE14007 - Electrical Machines and Drives Applications
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEE14007 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 project based learning unit, you will analyse and design systems and components that convert electrical energy into mechanical energy. You will investigate the construction and operational characteristics of various DC and AC electrical machines, analyse machine protection and control schemes and select and specify machines for particular applications. Furthermore, you will learn about components and materials for electrical machines, and use power electronics to optimise the performance of energy conversion. You are expected to learn and work individually and in teams to complete projects, to develop interpersonal and technical communication skills and to prepare professional documentation, including problem solutions, electrical designs and project reports. Distance education students are required to have access to a computer, to make frequent use of the Internet, and are required to participate in Residential School activities.

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.
