Term 1 - 2017


All details in this unit profile for ENEM14016 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 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.

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.
