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.

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).
Term 1 - 2017
This unit has a website, within the Moodle system, which is available two weeks before the start of term. It is important that you visit your Moodle site throughout the term.
