Course Description

This course introduces you to concepts of analysing AC circuits using complex numbers. Topic areas include RC, RL & RLC, AC fundamentals and measurement techniques, filters, coupled circuits and DC & AC Motor Control principles.

Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following Program Learning Outcomes (PLOs):

At the Bachelor Degree level this course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:
1.1 Comprehensive, theory based understanding of the underpinning natural and physical sciences and the engineering fundamentals applicable to the engineering discipline.
1.3 In-depth understanding of specialist bodies of knowledge within the engineering discipline.
2.1 Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering solving.
2.2 Fluent application of engineering techniques, tools and resources.
2.3 Application of systematic engineering synthesis and design processes.
3.2 Effective oral and written communication in professional and lay domains.

Course Learning Outcomes (CLOs)

On completion of this course, you should be able to:
1. Apply the knowledge and determine steady state responses for RC, RL and RLC circuits.
2. Develop practical skills in AC electrical measurement, testing and problem solving related to working with AC series & parallel circuits.
3. Apply AC steady state principles and analyse AC circuit involving phaser, complex impedances and AC power.
4. Apply circuit analysis principles and determine the transfer function of simple circuits.
5. Determine the output of a filter and apply MATLAB to draw Bode plots for transfer function of 1st and 2nd order filters.
6. Apply the operating principles of ideal transformers and perform simple transformer calculations.
7. Select a suitable filter components for required response
8. Apply DC and AC motor control principle and select suitable protection system for a motor application.

Overview of Learning Activities

In this course, you will learn through the following activities:
• Weekly lectures will guide you to get familiar with the theoretical principles pertaining to the course topics. Attendance at lectures and laboratory sessions where syllabus material will be presented and explained, and the subject will be illustrated with demonstrations and examples;
• The laboratory activities will help you relate theory with practice and develop practical circuit testing and diagnostic skills completion of tutorial questions, laboratory exercises and projects designed to give further practice in the application of theory and procedures, and to give feedback on student progress and understanding;
• The written and practical assignments will challenge you through application-oriented problems, and will enhance your problem solving skills individually or in teams intended to develop effectiveness in team environment. This will consist of AC circuit analysis and other problems requiring an integrated understanding of the subject matter; and
• The directed study time is expected for every student to work through the learning materials presented in classes to gain practice in solving conceptual and numerical problems.

Overview of Learning Resources

Learning resources will consist of recommended references and class notes which may be accessed through "myRMIT" if you are in Melbourne and via "RMIT online" if you are based in Vietnam.
The set of references is deliberately broad, including books, journal publications, government reports, industry standards and handbooks, and web-based resources.
