Hours & Credits
OverviewThis is a core unit that develops the basic topics essential for an electrical engineer working in areas that include the resources sector, the process industries, electrical power utilisation, electric power generators as well the electricity supply industry. Topics covered in machines include magnetic circuits, single phase and three phase transformers; electric machines including electromechanical energy conversion, reluctance motors, induction motors, synchronous machines, D.C. machines, stepper motors, P.C. motors; motor control; heating, cooling and rating. Power system topics include power generation and energy sources, electricity market operation, fault calculations, basic protection and power system operation, in particular real and reactive power control.Learning OutcomesOn completion of this unit you should be able to:1. Calculate transmission line parameters and modelling power transmission lines2. Calculate and analyse loadflow and faults in power systems using a per-unit system3. Calculate power flow for 2-bus systems4. Identify fundamentals of power system economics, generation costs, tariffs, market rules and performance5. Explain principles of single and three phase transformers operation and performance (winding, testing, losses and efficiency)6. Select a suitable dc and ac motor for a particular mechanical load characteristic.
Courses and course hours of instruction are subject to change.
Eligibility for courses may be subject to a placement exam and/or pre-requisites.
Some courses may require additional fees.
Credits earned vary according to the policies of the students' home institutions. According to ISA policy and possible visa requirements, students must maintain full-time enrollment status, as determined by their home institutions, for the duration of the program.
