Hours & Credits
This module will prepare students in developing a fundamental understanding of electrical engineering principles and procedures within an electrical engineering environment.
The student should be able to:
- communicate an understanding of the established principles, concepts and terminology of basic electrical engineering;
- analyse various basic electrical circuits that contain series, parallel or series-parallel passive elements (resistors, inductors or capacitors) by the selection, synthesis and implementation of the established principles, procedures and practices;
- analyse various basic magnetic circuits that contain series, parallel or series-parallel branches by the selection, synthesis and implementation of the established principles, procedures and practices;
- establish the parameters for, and implement the principles and operation of inductors in steady-state and transient conditions in electrical circuits;
- establish the parameters for, and implement the principles and operation of capacitors in steady-state and transient conditions in electrical circuits.
- The introduction of electrical and mechanical engineering quantities and applications.
- Elementary circuit theory and network analysis (DC only).
- Principles of magnetism and electric fields.
- Magnetic Circuits.
- Inductance and operation of inductors.
- Capacitance and operation of capacitors.
- Measurement of resistance, voltage and current.
