ENAE12013 - Electrical Components and Circuit Analysis
Term 2 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENAE12013 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

This unit introduces the modelling electrical components and systems. Students apply theorems and network reduction techniques to DC and AC circuits, and apply problem solving techniques in the analysis of AC and DC circuits. The unit also covers the concepts of transient response, Laplace transforms and tranasfer functions. Students also apply laboratory techniques and appropriate software tools to the analysis of electrical circuits. Students use fundamental electrical engineering language in context and document the process of modelling and analysis. They present information, communicate, work and learn in a professional manner. Distance students must complete practical activities outcomes by attending residential school.

Attendance Requirements

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).

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.

5 Online Quiz(zes)

Assessment Title Online Progressive Tests
Task Description

The assessment is a set of online fortnightly Progressive Tests which can be accessed via the unit Moodle site. The progressive tests are an integrated part of the study to test on the key concepts of each week. Details of the assessment can be found on the unit Moodle site at the beginning of the term. Each progressive test will be available up to 2 weeks after the relevant week to allow students who cannot find time each week for study. For example progressive test one will close at the end of week 2 and progressive test 2 will close at the end of 4. All progressive tests must be completed by the end of week 8.

Each progressive test can be attempted several times, but the score for the progressive test will be the score for your first attempt. Correct answer for the progressive test questions will be available immediately after you submit your answers.

If you encounter any network access issues during the progressive test, the unit coordinator should be notified at your earliest convenient.
