ENEE12014 - Electrical Circuit Analysis
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEE12014 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. You will 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, and two port network theorems. You will also apply laboratory techniques and appropriate software tools to the analysis of electrical circuits. You will 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.

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
The course content was extremely well structured with the texts and weekly learnings. All content delivered in the lecturers solidified the learnings expected for the weekly content. lecturers were very clear and concise and the worked examples really helped to understand the concepts further. Course Evaluation, In class, phone Keep the lecture structure and style unchanged,
lay out of the labs makes them so much easier to do. The scaffolding really helped, needing only to fill in boxes under headings made writing labs so much easier. Course Evaluation, In class , phone Continue with laboratories in a similar style.
I believe in the later weeks of this course we may have needed more than one tutorial per fortnight as the content got harder. Course Evaluation Add extra tutorials after mid term break
I found it very reassuring and helpful that Shaminda took the time to visit and conduct the labs for us distance students. Course Evaluation, in class Participate the Residential school
PASS/FAIL criteria for all workbooks Course Evaluation Possibility of replacing the workbook with fortnightly quizzes will be considered.
The lectures and tutorials for this course need to be within day time working hours (9am to 5pm.) Course Evaluation Inform time tabling in advance of this need
The assessment in this course was very challenging. They really pushed us to learn new skills in circuit analysis. I thought this was good. Course Evaluation, In class Maintain the same level of difficulty in Assignmnets
On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to:
  1. Model electrical components and systems
  2. Apply problem solving techniques, network reduction techniques and theorems in the analysis of DC and AC circuits.
  3. Explain transient phenomena and analyse the transient behaviour of simple circuits
  4. Apply appropriate software tools to the analysis of electrical circuits
  5. Use fundamental "electrical engineering language" in context, document the process of modelling and analysis.
  6. Present all information, Communicate, work and learn, individually and in peer learning teams, in a professional manner.

The Learning Outcomes for this unit are linked with Engineers Australia's Stage 1 Competency Standard for Professional Engineers.

Assessment Title Online Quizzes
Task Description

This assessment item is a set of online quizzes which can be accessed via the unit Moodle site. The quizzes 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 quiz will be available up to 2 weeks to allow students who cannot find time each week for study. For example quiz one will close at the end of week 4, and last quiz must be completed by week 9.

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

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