ENAE12006 - Electrical Machines and Drives
Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENAE12006 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 be introduced to different types of electrical machines that convert electrical energy to other forms of energy. You will cover construction and operational characteristics of DC and AC electrical machines. You will also get a basic understanding of machine protection and control schemes. You will work, learn and communicate ethically and professionally, to investigate and solve problems and present solutions. You will communicate technical aspects and operation of electrical machines and clearly document solutions to problems. You will attend a Residential School to complete the laboratory experiment component of the unit.

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.

4 Online Quiz(zes)

Assessment Title Online Quiz(zes)
Task Description

The assessment is a set of five online fortnightly quizzes which can be accessed via the unit Moodle site. Each online quiz weights 4% of your final mark (20% in total). The quizzes are an integrated part of the study to test on the key concepts of each topic. Each quiz will be available up to 1 week after the relevant fortnight to allow students who cannot find time each week for study. For example quiz on Week 1 and 2 will be available on Tuesday Week 3 and will close on Tuesday the week after.

Important Notes:

  • Each quiz has a set time to complete and once a student start a quiz, it will close after the set time.
  • Once started, a quiz cannot be paused in the middle. Students are strongly advised to sufficiently cover the material related to each quiz before starting the quiz.
  • You can attemp each quiz 3 times within the given time frame as specified in the schedule.
  • Final mark will be the highest of all the attempts.
