This project based unit will introduce you to fluid and electrical drives and the design of integrated drive systems for use in industry. It covers: comparison of characteristics, construction, selection, design and operation of fluid and electric drives and drive systems; use of mathematical models to analyse performance; machine protection and control schemes; and evaluation of drive system performance. You will apply formulas and explain and record calculations. You will adopt professional approaches to work in teams and learn collaboratively to manage and complete projects. You will manage your own learning; investigate, design and check work; and communicate professionally using discipline language to present designs and problem solutions. 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).
